Disneyland celebrates its 30th anniversary with me on my 30th year in show biz. I had no idea we started out the same year. And just look what happened. Tinker Bell is still tinkering, Mickey is still mousing and all the other characters are going strong.
There have been additions and changes to Disneyland during the past three decades. I've had some face lifts, too--three.
Lots of kids grew up thinking Disneyland was a state, just like Iowa and Rhode Island. Some Mickey Mouse Club kids have turned into grandparents, who bring their grandchildren to the world's greatest family attraction.
I had no idea the Matterhorn was a roller coaster in disguise. I got on that thing and my hair turned white. My knuckles are still blue. The circulation never returned.
My favorite place is the Haunted House because it reminds me of home. However, my house has not been haunted ever since the night I tried on all my wigs.
