We've all seen this, right?



SO EXCITED! Our next visit is set for the last week of January, just about a week-and-a-half after the parade returns on January 20th *SQUEEEEE!*

So did you catch all the references?

The 64658 on the warehouse door is the zip code for Marceline, Mo., the town where Walt Disney grew up.

The doors open to reveal a Skyway bucket sliding in front of Skull Rock.

That's followed by a high shot that includes the old Disneyland sign, the Star Jets, the Silly Sea Serpent from the original Submarine Ride, and that Skybucket again. On the far right is the Mighty Microscope and a Dumbo vehicle. There's an old popcorn cart in the middle, and four heads with tricorner hats on the left side from the old America on Parade attraction.

The next shot features Captain Rex from the original Star Tours, an old Autopia car, Sam the Eagle from America Sings, a PeopleMover car, and the original Yeti from Matterhorn Bobsleds.

From there, the woman walks past a collection of old attraction posters for Tom Sawyer island (now Pirates Cove), The Mickey Mouse Club Theater Featuring Jimmy Dodd's 3-D Jamboree (now Pinocchio's Daring Journey) and the original Submarine Ride (Now the Finding nemo ride), plus several princess dresses and what i *assume* is a chandelier from the Haunted Mansion. A flying saucer floats past, then as she greets the old man, we see the Nautilus in the background (which was one of the original walk-through attractions in Tomorrowland)

AMAZING STUFF!!!

If you're like me at all, and you've spent all day running around Disneyland (and I mean ALL. DAY.), your feet and legs are probably just about ready to give up on you while you're walking back to the hotel room. And you've still got four more days in the park to think about!

So here's what you do.

Two Ibuprofen, two Tylenol. Plenty of water. Then, the stretches!

Sore calves/legs? Sit on the floor facing a wall with your legs straight and your feet flat against the wall. (You may want to sit on a pillow to make the move more comfortable.) Bend forward as far as you can to stretch and lengthen your calf muscles and hamstrings.

Stand as if you’ve just taken a step forward with your right leg (so your left leg is behind you). Tuck your left foot under so the tops of your toes touch the floor. You should feel a stretch along the top of your foot. Hold, then switch feet.

Up near your toes? Stand as if you’ve just taken a step forward with your right leg (so your left leg is behind you). Tuck your left foot under so the tops of your toes touch the floor. You should feel a stretch along the top of your foot. Hold, then switch feet. Repeat a few times. Then go sit on a chair and cross your left leg, resting your ankle on your right thigh. Weave the fingers of your right hand through the toes of your left foot to separate them. Focus on spreading your toes wide; try not to pull them up or down. Hold, then switch sides.

And then, once you've done all that and you're *still* a bit sore? Lie on your back with your bottom a few inches from a wall and your arms out. Place your heels on the wall with your legs forming a wide V. You’ll feel a gentle pull in your inner thighs. Overly tight inner-thigh muscles can overload the arches of your feet, so this stretch can relax them when they’re cramped. Plus, elevating the legs reduces swelling!

I know this is a huge wall-o-text reply, but the whole process from the moment you take the ibuprofen to the time your feet are feeling swell should be no more than like 15 minutes. And best of all, you'll be "reset" for the next day in the park!
