I wanted to show Hiphipahula the location of the Don the Beachcomber in the old food court at DCA while we were roaming around the park yesterday.

We sneaked past the barrier that blocks off the building and peered through the dirty windows of the locked doors to catch a glimpse of the sign. Two cast members walked by but didn't shoo us away. As I was heading back toward the park, Kelly was behind me telling me to get my camera out. The side entrance to the building was open.

They have converted a small area inside the building into a men's changing room, so naturally, Kelly stood look out while I went in.

Oh cool, it's still all there, a mixture of O.A. and Bosko's stuff. For me, the coolest thing there was a display case with vintage 30s/40s Don The Beachcomber memorabilia, I bet those went back to the collectors they were on loan from though. Good urban archeology, girls!

That whole thing came and went pretty fast, which is better anyway...what a sad reincarnation for Don's once great name, as fast food counter in a food court.

I disagree, maybe in given time it would have developed, maybe not, at the very least created excitement & good vibes. Glad to know its all there & intact, downer is they use it for a men's cast member changing room? ack! It's so tucked away no wonder the "Food Court" didn't fair well, no one knew it was there very poor planing Glad I spotted the open door and Kate had a camera ...we didn't spot any naked dudes though ... anyway it was all great fun & we didn't get booted off the lot! In Dec. we had to walk Mr. Toads Wild Ride when it broke down now, were Nancy Drew & Mrs. Colombo... Stay tuned for even more crazy adventures of Disneyland from Kate & Kelly it was fun!

I went back to revisit DTB at DCA yesterday and found the memorabilia that Sven mentioned earlier in the thread.

Sorry about the glare.
