Having a Magical Time at Three O’Clock

Posted by Ashley Rae on June 24, 2009

If in the Magic Kingdom at three o’clock, be sure to stop by Main Street USA, Liberty Square, or Frontierland to catch A Dream Come True parade.

Luckily Pinocchio is there to remind you of the time as his float comes through the parade toward the front.

History of the Mickey Mouse Watch: Abridged

Posted by Ashley Rae on June 22, 2009

Mickey WatchIn this image taken off of Hollywood Boulevard is a classic Mickey Mouse watch used as the illuminated street sign to entice Guests inside the shop.

In 1933, the first Mickey Mouse watch was made by Ingersoll Waterbury Clock Co.  During this time, the company’s financial condition was very poor, but they released their Mickey Mouse watch for $3.25 and later for $2.95.  The popularity of the watches brought Ingersoll Waterbury Clock Co. out of their debts.  Production continued through to the 1960s when the company became US Time and later Timex.

Having a Magical Time- Primeval Whirl

Posted by Ashley Rae on June 16, 2009

Different than most Having a Magical Time entries, Primeval Whirl is essentially all about time.  Chester and Hester designed the roller coaster in jest.  They intend to tease the stereotypical personalities of the paleontologists over at The Dino Institute.  They are obsessed with time travel and getting that next dinosaur.

Watch out for this ride.  Being an outside rollercoaster, it tends to have a lot more weather restrictions.

Fastasyland Stroller Parking

Fantasyland Stroller Parking

This location was originally used as the Fantasyland Skyway station.  The attration opened with the park on October 1, 1971 and closed in November 1999.  Now the area has been reserved for strollers for the local attractions.  The clock atop the tower seems almost hidden, but a clock nonetheless.

Having a Magical Time- Tomorrowland Video Arcade

Posted by Ashley Rae on June 13, 2009

Its the 80th day since I started blogging on Shoes, Shorts, Gloves (not including the welcoming note) so I decided to catch up on any days I might have missed and made 80 posts for 80 days.  Hopefully this catching up and the usage of my stock photos will force me to venture into the parks again despite the warm temperatures.  Enjoy!

Tomorrowland Video Arcade Clock

To begin… a Having a Magical Time entry (which there are quite a few coming up) that highlights the clock over at the Video Arcade in Tomorrowland.  The arcade is a part of the shop that Guests pass through as they exit (or exited) Space Mountain.

UK ClockThis clock is located within the United Kingdom pavilion in Epcot.  Although not obviously designed after a specific piece of architecture from the UK, the location over looks some fun performances.

Between The Tea Caddy and the clock, Guests can get the chance to enjoy an immersive experience with The World Showcase Players and their rendition of King Arthur and the Holy Grail.  In the garden toward the back of the streets, Guests can watch a Beatles tribute band called The British Invasion.

It's A Small World

The clock in It’s A Small World is a large iconic structure that is featured on a new 9″ Vinylmation. Important to the attraction, the clock is located on the Exit side of the boat ride. The clock does a little show every few minutes, but it is difficult to follow the time. The clock was not set properly when I boarded the Happiest Little Cruise That Ever Did Sail, and it was hours later when I left.
