***HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY WIFE JOYCE!!!***
Welcome to Tales From The Mouse House Disneyland Podcast Episode 73 - Video Voiceover Special!! Thanks for our good friend and awesome listener Doug E. for suggesting another of his favorite episodes...the Video Voiceover (imagine this was said with a LOT of echo and dramatic music). So Doug...here you are...a video...you know, voiceover episode! On this episode we take you on a tour of the Main Street Opera House and all the wonderful Disneyland exhibits. Now, if you've not paid a visit to this awesome attraction, you really should. There is SO much Disneyland history inside that you'll kick yourself for not seeing it sooner! Who needs the D23 Expo...when you've got THIS?!

We also take you back in time to our very first visit to Disneyland together (and MY FIRST EVER VISIT) from September 2007. Now remember, this was pre-HD video for us, so some of the footage is a little grainy. You'll get to see the New Orleans Square train station, take a harrowing ride on one of Toontown's SCARIEST attractions, Gadget's Go Coaster and you'll finally get to see an extinct attraction that I covered a few episodes back, the infamous Maliboomer! And, we take you on a white water adventure over in California Adventure's Grizzly River Run where you'll meet some new friends.

Speaking of my first visit to Disneyland, believe it or not, I can still remember it like it was 6 years ago! Ok, that was an attempt at humor. Seriously, I can still remember it like it was just a few months ago. I was so excited - AFTER I walked through the gates. Before...well, not so much. I was very much like a kid again after walking through the gates, and under that berm. We must have walked 80 miles (no exaggeration) on that vacation, just running here, then there, then back here. So much fun. It was then that my life changed forever. I thank my wonderful wife Joyce for introducing me to my Happy Place, and I thank Walt Disney for creating the getaway of my dreams. My life hasn't been the same since. But...that's a story for another day.
So, I just want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my best friend and wife Joyce. Hope you had a wonderful day honey. And I want to remind you all that if you're thinking of taking a trip to Disneyland, or heck anywhere for that matter, give our good friend and sponsor Randy Crane from Mouse Ear Vacations a shout. He CAN get you the best deal in town. Check out his website at www.randyc-mouseearvacations.com
