The cause of a sickness that affected 30 people on Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean ride over the weekend has not been determined, a spokeswoman for the park said Sunday afternoon. But two of the six persons who were treated Saturday night at a hospital for coughing, tight chests, burning eyes, skin blotches and nausea said a doctor told them that "a gas, something like Mace" apparently caused their symptoms.

When the last Jungle Cruise boat docks for the night and lights fade to black on Sleeping Beauty's Castle, the real work begins. At lush Pixie Hollow, gardeners don miner's headlamps as they begin uprooting stubborn weeds. On Main Street, custodians scrape chewing gum off the sidewalk. And over at Mickey's Toontown, painters sand and recoat chipped handrails. Few see it happen, except perhaps for the dozens of feral cats that emerge from their hiding places to prowl the park after hours, stalking rodents.

For most people, fireworks are a special treat — loud, luminous displays to savor on Independence Day or New Year's Eve. But for some who live near Disneyland, where fireworks blossom in the skies above Sleeping Beauty's Castle almost every night, the rockets' red glare has worn out its welcome. Residents have added double-paned windows and extra insulation to soundproof the walls. Juanita Driskell, a retired teacher who has lived a few blocks from the Anaheim theme park for nearly three decades, is so accustomed to the fireworks that when the crackling and hissing starts around 9:30 p.m., she just cranks up the volume on the television.

Workers at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park took photos of visitors entering the parks Tuesday as part of a new effort to crack down on abuse of multi-day tickets. The process of photographing guests--including children--delayed visitors getting into the park by about 45 minutes, according to park-goers. "They delayed literally thousands of people in line to do this process," said Bob Shoberg, a San Jose resident who visited Disneyland with his wife, daughters, in-laws and grandchildren.

If you doubt the interest in Euro-Disneyland, consider the following: As we checked into a campsite in eastern France a couple of years ago, a little girl wanted to know where we were from. I mentioned (through an interpreter) U.S.A., California, Los Angeles, and Hollywood with little signs of recognition. But when I mentioned Disneyland, her face lit up and she said, "If you could be in Disneyland today, why are you in France?" JAMES T. HUMBERD Rancho Mirage
