Welcome to the #GreatMovieMarathon live blog —  we'll get started at 9:00 am ET/6:00 am PT on Saturday, August 12th with Footlight Parade. See you then!

8/11/2017 1:50 AM

We're almost ready! The #GreatMovieMarathon starts in 10 minutes and kicks off with "Footlight Parade."

8/11/2017 10:50 PM

It's almost time! Is everybody ready? "Ready whenever you are, CB!" #GreatMovieMarathon

8/11/2017 10:55 PM

It's time for Footlight Parade. Push play now!!! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/11/2017 11:00 PM

Maybe it's just because it's early, but the way these credits roll makes me dizzier than the Mad Tea Party! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/11/2017 11:01 PM

"Ol' Man River" was just mentioned. It's from "Show Boat" and the remake was proudly featured in the finale of GMR. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/11/2017 11:10 PM

When 'Footlight Parade' was released in 1933, Mickey Mouse was only 5 years old. He's about to turn 90... #GreatMovieMarathon

8/11/2017 11:15 PM

I'm pretty sure they sell these tails in Disney Parks now... #GreatMovieMarathon

8/11/2017 11:21 PM

Every time they say "Gladstone," I think of "Ducktales." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/11/2017 11:31 PM

Question: Does anybody else think she'll ditch the glasses, let down her hair and suddenly be appealing to these clowns?#GreatMovieMarathon

8/11/2017 11:39 PM

It's finally happening! Uh huh! Uh huh! Sittin' on a backyard fence! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/11/2017 11:41 PM

Uh huh, Uh huh, I kinda thought you'd weaken, sittin' on a backyard fence. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/11/2017 11:43 PM

Her Donald Duck Disney Bounding is on point! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/11/2017 11:50 PM

"By Saturday night, we'll have what we want!" But it won't be an announcement that GMR is staying. :( #GreatMovieMarathon

8/11/2017 11:53 PM

I wonder why "Honeymoon Hotel" wasn't used in the trailer. "This song is great," said nobody ever. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:11 AM

I'm very certain this weird little boy grew up to be Judge Doom. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:13 AM

No doubt about it. That was lil' Judge Doom. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:14 AM

"There's a whippoorwill that's calling youuuuu" "Woo Woo Woo Woo!" #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:20 AM

A colorized promotional image of this sequence. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:21 AM

"Sing along folks! You know the words." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:24 AM

Another gorgeous color promo photo. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:24 AM

"We're getting ready for you!" #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:25 AM

The moment we've all been waiting for!!! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:26 AM

Disney promotes the "Backside of water." I don't think I would go near Warner Brothers' "Human waterfall." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:27 AM

When the attraction first opened, this sequence had water and started in the ride path and pulled back as you got closer #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:28 AM

In the VHS version, the girls apparently took off flying through the air and James Cagney was only marginally concerned. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:29 AM

We're all so lucky "Footlight Parade" is in black and white. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:36 AM

He found his Shanghai Lil! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:37 AM

I could do that. I just choose not to. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:38 AM

Franklin D. Roosevelt is well known for his work in The Hall of Presidents. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:42 AM

Alright, we've got a short break. Meet back here at 10:50 for "Singin' in the Rain!" #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:43 AM

What a glorious feeling! Press play now! It's time for "Singin' in the Rain"! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:50 AM

This theater looks really familiar, but I can't put my finger on where I've seen it before... #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:52 AM

Walt Disney grew up in the days of vaudeville and even thought about performing in his youth. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 12:56 AM

I'm booking these girls for my next birthday party. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 1:14 AM

This whole cake motif looks familiar. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 1:14 AM

Donald O'Connor reportedly checked himself into a hospital after finishing this scene having beat himself up badly. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 1:18 AM

"Talking pictures. All the studios are doing it!" #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 1:24 AM

Susan also had a hard time teaching Sharon the difference between "Can't" and "Kaan't" in 'The Parent Trap.' #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 1:36 AM

Moses would like to correct a little misstatement. He absolutely knows that toeses aren't roses. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 1:40 AM

That guy was wrong, the worst picture ever made is "The Emoji Movie." Too soon? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 1:50 AM

We started kind of early and forgot to bid everyone a "Good mornin'." I hope this makes up for it. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 1:52 AM

I'm suddenly craving orange juice... anybody else? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 1:53 AM

Did you know that Gene Kelly had a 103 degree fever when he filmed this? I can't recall where I heard that though... #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 1:58 AM

Not to be outdone, animatronic Gene Kelly also runs at a consistent 103 degrees and has been doing this since 1989. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 1:59 AM

Sometimes Cast Members have fun before and after work. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 2:00 AM

This number was filmed on the New York Street section of MGM's sprawling backlot. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 2:01 AM

Once upon a time, Walt Disney World had their own New York Street backlot. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 2:02 AM

I feel like the doors are going to open any minute and somebody's going to ask me how many are in my party. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 2:06 AM

When people say the name Cyd Charisse, this is all I think about. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 2:10 AM

Truth Bomb: MGM used to own Loew's Theaters before the government barred studios from owning theater chains. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 2:13 AM

How do you all like my new profile pic? #GreatMovieMarathon #GottaDance

8/12/2017 2:18 AM

This is all wrong! That's not what the inside of the Chinese Theater looks like. This is! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 2:25 AM

Honestly, The Great Movie Ride would have been just as good if they reenacted this moment with animatronics instead. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 2:30 AM

Which song is better? "Lucky Star" or "When You Wish Upon a Star"? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 2:32 AM

Break time! I'll see you all again at 9:45 for "Mary Poppins." Spit spot! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 2:33 AM

Push play now! "Well, if it isn't Mary Poppins!" #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 2:45 AM

That is a matte painting... I thought you aught to know. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 2:47 AM

The whole world gets its time from their smart phones, but their smart phones gets its time from Admiral Boom. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 2:51 AM

Fun Fact: All of Cherry Tree Lane was an indoor set. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 2:52 AM

Reta Shaw spent the majority of her Disney career playing a cook. She may have even worn the same costume in Pollyanna. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 2:54 AM

I'm going to start walking in my door sing-talking like George Banks, demanding things of my spouse and domestics. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 2:59 AM

I wonder how they made all the nannies fly away? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:09 AM

Walt Disney discovered Julie Andrews when she did a promo on TV while starring in "Camelot" on Broadway. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:10 AM

"The position has been filled." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:14 AM

How meta would it have been if Great Movie Ride recreated this scene, but gave Animatronic Mary a real bird to hold? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:19 AM

Bert would be very popular if he had lived to see Festival of the Masters. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:23 AM

This is why Julie Andrews deserved the Oscar. She sold this sodium vapor screen and made us BELIEVE! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:31 AM

Wizards of movie making. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:33 AM

Not trying to ruin the magic for anyone, but... #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:35 AM

Clears throat. Something about Walt Disney and a carousel. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:36 AM

This comes to mind. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:37 AM

Remember when the props in the queue were relevant to the films in the ride? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:40 AM

Mary and Bert's horses were on display at the 2013 D23 Expo. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:41 AM

This is how I learned how to spell "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:42 AM

THAT was Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:44 AM

"Rrrrrrum punch!" #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:46 AM

Whatever you do, don't Google Image search "Stay Awake." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:47 AM

"Stay Awake" was the name of a terrifying album of Disney covers from the 80's. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:48 AM

Mary and the kids made it to Madam Corry's Shop in the Broadway version. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:53 AM

It's a Disney film from the 1960's, so Ed Wynn was a given. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:55 AM

More magic ruined. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:58 AM

Waiting for tea like... #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 3:59 AM

I think I found the wooden leg they keep referring to! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:00 AM

Wait a minute... his last name is Banks... and he works at a... I see what they did there. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:08 AM

"Feed the Birds" was Walt Disney's favorite song of all the pieces created by his studio. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:09 AM

I'm not crying. DON'T LOOK AT ME! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:11 AM

Take my money now! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:12 AM

Did you know this scene inspired a character in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:13 AM

"Feed the birds and what have you got? Fat birds!" #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:16 AM

Mr. Dawes Senior was played by Navckid Keyd, but his son will be played by Dick Van Dyke in "Mary Poppins Returns." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:17 AM

Dick Van Dyke also reprised his role in a surprised performance of the Broadway show. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:19 AM

Richard and Robert Sherman accepting their Oscar for "Chim Chim Cher-ee." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:24 AM

I have found the missing link between "Singin' in the Rain" and "Mary Poppins." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:26 AM

The real view from the rooftops. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:31 AM

Liberties were taken with this sequence from Great Movie Ride. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:32 AM

Never forget that this was one of the first numbers on the "Disneyland Fun" Sing-Along Songs VHS. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:34 AM

"Watch my head spin!" #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:36 AM

Why hasn't there been an all-Mary Poppins themed fireworks show yet? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:39 AM

"What's all this? What's all this?" #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:40 AM

"You've got to grind, grind, grind at that grindstone, though childhood slips like sand through a sieve." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:46 AM

"The tea was unsuitable for drinking... even for Americans." HEY! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:51 AM

"A wooden leg named Smith... A wooden leg named Smith... A wooden le..." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 4:56 AM

SHE mended it... #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 5:00 AM

"Don't stay away too long, Mary Poppins." Best last line of a movie ever... or is it? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 5:03 AM

Short break until "The Public Enemy" at 3:15. In the meantime, how precious is this picture? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 5:04 AM

Want to join the #GreatMovieMarathon ? We're entering Gangster Alley in 5 minutes with "The Public Enemy."

8/12/2017 5:10 AM

It's time, see? Push play now, see? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 5:15 AM

Released in 1931, this intro is giving me flashes of the early Silly Symphonies. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 5:16 AM

"Extra, Extra, read all about it!" #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 5:18 AM

Which film has a more iconic pool scene: "The Public Enemy" or "Pinocchio"? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 5:26 AM

Is this the scene? Cagney ain't dressed right for it. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 5:30 AM

Fun fact: In Gangster Alley, the poster for "The Public Enemy" was pasted over an old Mickey Mouse ad. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 5:41 AM

Daryl Zanuck was sold on "The Public Enemy" on the notion that it would be the most violent film he ever saw. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 5:53 AM

I swear I've seen these two together before... #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 6:05 AM

Two years after "The Public Enemy," James Cagney and Joan Blondell starred together in "Footlight Parade." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 6:06 AM

Okay, now I feel cheated that the gangster section also didn't feature an exploding building after the gunfire. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 6:20 AM

The tux James Cagney wears in the ride was from his personal collection and selected by his heirs. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 6:29 AM

That ending's got me shook! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 6:39 AM

Be back in 5 minutes for "A Fistful of Dollars." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 6:40 AM

Time for a quick break. Beware of hitchhiking gangsters! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 6:40 AM

Push play on "A Fistful of Dollars" now! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 6:45 AM

I have to admit, I was not expecting an animated opening at all! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 6:48 AM

I'm taking a stab in the dark, but I'm guessing the man shooting at the crying boy is a bad guy. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 6:50 AM

He's not a bellringer! This is a bellringer! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 6:53 AM

I did not realize "A Fistful of Dollars" was a Spaghetti Western, filmed in Italian and later dubbed in English. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 6:54 AM

Every time he leans against the outside of a building smoking a cigarette I'm like... is this the part? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 7:07 AM

I love how they keep reusing the same scared horse sound over and over. Is this a comedy? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 7:12 AM

Clint Eastwood was speaking English on set and dubbed in Italian for the original release. #GreatMovieMarathon


8/12/2017 7:18 AM

It's interesting to note that "A Fistful of Dollars" was released in Europe in 1964, the same year as "Mary Poppins." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 7:24 AM

He's leaning against a building again! Is this the part? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 7:41 AM

Frank Wells was friends with Clint Eastwood and thats how this film was chosen for inclusion in GMR. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 7:48 AM

Disney originally intented to depict a scene from "Cat Ballou" in place of "A Fistful of Dollars." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 7:49 AM

You can read all about it thanks to @JimHillMedia #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 7:50 AM

I'm so glad they didn't chose to recreate this scene. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 8:02 AM

If this is too dark for your tastes, just think about Clint Eastwood at Disneyland with Richard Nixon because reasons. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 8:04 AM

I did not realize the bank burning scene was also from "A Fistful of Dollars." I assumed that was original. Mind. Blown. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 8:08 AM

Kind of a weird layout since it goes Fistful - Searchers - Fistful, but still a great experience. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 8:09 AM

I looked it up and in case you were wondering, yes, @qtarantino was inspired by "A Fistful of Dollars." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 8:12 AM

"I think I can, I think I can, I thought I could, I thought I could." Anyone else just hear that? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 8:13 AM

"Boots, fancy boots. Spurs, shiny spurs." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 8:17 AM

Sometimes Cast Members have a little fun before and after the parks close. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 8:20 AM

Quick 5-minute break. Be back at 6:30 for "The Searchers," last film of the night! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 8:25 AM

Press play on "The Searchers," pardner! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 8:30 AM

It's Uncle Ethan!!! If he asks for seconds, will he be told "Ethan, no you don't!"? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 8:34 AM

Nobody has ever thanked me for the hospitality of my rocking chair before. But I also don't have a rocking chair, so... #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 8:43 AM

Phrase added to my vocabulary: "I can whoop you into a frazzle." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 8:45 AM

A hearty cowboy song would really liven the mood right about now. How about "Wringle Wrangle"? #GreatMovieMarathon


8/12/2017 8:56 AM

How cool would it have been if the Great Movie Ride scene featured a constant snowfall over John Wayne? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 9:13 AM

Vera Miles made several films at Disney, including "Follow Me, Boys!" and "Those Calloways." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 9:19 AM

Cowboy Vocabulary: Tother (Tuh-uhther) V - To go in the opposite direction of the one you stated you would head in. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 9:27 AM

Can we rename Mrs. Pawlie to "Trader Samantha"? Any objections? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 9:34 AM

Whenever I hear "Squaw," I hear "Squaw gettem firewood!" #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 9:36 AM

A promotional coffee mug to promote "The Searchers" in 1956. Any fans out there have one of these beauties? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 9:39 AM

Every time they say "Comanche," I think of Disney's "Tonka." Comanche was the name of his horse. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 9:42 AM

Who woulda thunk that the rocking chair would be back? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 9:49 AM

I'm waiting for Scar to sing "Be Prepared." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 9:53 AM

"Ethan, no you don't!" Best mid-line of a movie ever. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 9:58 AM

I'm going to start talking like John Wayne, using phrases like "That'll be the day" and... that's the only one I know. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 10:02 AM

The original wedding crashers. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 10:07 AM

Director John Ford reportedly called Walt Disney to ask if Fess Parker was available for "The Searchers." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 10:13 AM

Fess Parker and Jeffrey Hunter starred together in Disney's "The Great Locomotive Chase." #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 10:21 AM

Framed exactly like the beginning... I see what they did there. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 10:28 AM

Well pardner, I guess it's about time to mosey along for the... Wait, somebody's robbin' the bank! #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 10:29 AM

Well, well, folks. I just stole myself this here movin' theater and this Laughing Place twitter account. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 10:30 AM

Y'all best get some rest. This caravan's rolling out bright and early tomorrow. 9 AM ET/6 AM PT. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/12/2017 10:31 AM

Howdy! It's almost time to start this caravan and roll along to the next picture. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 10:50 PM

Running a red light is against the law, and I never break the law. *Shoots red light* No more red light. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 10:59 PM

Alright, y'all. Start this next movie now. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 11:00 PM

What is this, Jersey? "You are with Sigourney Weaver aboard the spaceship Nostromo." Who in the Sam Hill said that? #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 11:03 PM

Rise and shine, sleepy heads! Put on your Dungarees, it's time to saddle up! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 11:06 PM

This alarm don't sound good. At least it didn't last long. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 11:17 PM

If I understand correctly, we got a bunch of future cowboys up in space and the natives are gettin' restless. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 11:20 PM

That Sigourney Weaver miss better watch her language! This here's a family show. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 11:22 PM

I've never seen anything like it, nuther! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 11:25 PM

I tell you what, that's freaky right there. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 11:28 PM

Oh my! Get out a' there! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 11:34 PM

I do hope none of y'all are hungry or nothin' right now. I'm liable to lose my breakfast. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 11:37 PM

How cute, this little space scorpion wants to give y'all a hug. Any takers? #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 11:38 PM

If I had some space scorpion blood, I could burn through any bank vault. I wonder if we can get one to come with us. #GreatMovieMarathon.
8/12/2017 11:41 PM

Jumpin' Jehosafats! How about we all move slowly and try not to trigger any false alarms. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 11:47 PM

That's the ugliest critter West of the Mississippi. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 11:50 PM

I found another flower shirt for that interesting fella if he wants it. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 11:53 PM

Is that feller wearin' a corset? The future's gonna be weird, folks! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 11:54 PM

Alright, don't nobody eat nothin' on Nostromo! I repeat, don't eat NOTHIN'!!! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/12/2017 11:56 PM

I reckon this kitty cat is in some real trouble. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 12:04 AM

Oh no! I do not want! I DO NOT WANT!!! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 12:08 AM

Of course the kitty is actin' cooler than a cucumber in May. #GreatMovieMarathon #CatsAreEvil
8/13/2017 12:09 AM

If I were a bettin' man, I'd say most a these folks won't live long enough to taste another cup a sassafrass. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 12:10 AM

This talkin' window box thing is blowin' my mind! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 12:20 AM

Pay no attention to the brothel pictures in Ash's cabin. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 12:23 AM

This picture has everything. Space cowboys, talking disembodied heads, devil cats, giant scorpions, gator-people. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 12:26 AM

Well this can't be good. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 12:34 AM

You heard the lady, we have 10-minutes to high tail it outta here! Is there also 10-minutes left ot this alarming sound? #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 12:36 AM

How many times is that dang ship gonna explode? #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 12:43 AM

Of course, the dang evil cat gets to live. I've decided this movie is not so great. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 12:45 AM

In space, no one can hear you holler. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 12:49 AM

Ripley can't wait to reach the frontier. She and I have that in common. #GreatMovieMarathon

Time for a rest stop. Be back here by 11:15 am ET/9:15 am PT for our next picture. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 12:55 AM

What do you reckon all these names are for? #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 12:55 AM

#Disneyland looks very popular this morning. Don't all these people know the #GreatMovieMarathon is going on?
8/13/2017 1:02 AM

10 minutes to show time, y'all. Were off to find treasure in the jungles! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 1:10 AM

More like 3 minutes to show time, y'all. Math is hard. Were off to find treasure in the jungles! #GreatMovieMarathon #greatmoviemarathon
8/13/2017 1:12 AM

We're off to find treasure! Push play on "Raiders of the Lost Ark" now! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 1:15 AM

From space scorpions to real tarantulas. These movies give me the heebie jeebies #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 1:20 AM

Those idols look valuable. Don't nobody move, I'm gonna get me one. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 1:23 AM

"Halt, nonbeliever. Disturb the treasure of the gods and you shall all pay with your lives." Hogwash, I'm taking it! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 1:24 AM

Laughing Place is back in control! We just stepped out for some popcorn. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 1:25 AM

And when choosing your movie snacks, remember that Mickey eats Pop Secret and drinks Coca Cola. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 1:26 AM

This is the second time Moses has been brought up during the #GreatMovieMarathon . Remember "Singin' in the Rain"?
8/13/2017 1:32 AM

If you include The Great Movie Ride, Disney built 3 Indiana Jones attractions at Disney World. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 1:44 AM

The other two are the Epic Stunt Spectacular and the most recent is Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar at Disney Springs. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 1:45 AM

Disneyland has a full Indiana Jones ride, plus there was a short-lived show throughout Adventureland in 2008. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 1:46 AM

Even with six screens the #GreatMovieMarathon here does not cover as much ground. #Disneyland
8/13/2017 1:47 AM

Disneyland Paris has an Indiana Jones roller coaster called "Temple of Peril." #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 1:48 AM

The crazy thing is that all of these attractions were built before Disney acquired ownership of Indiana Jones in 2012. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 1:49 AM

Where's the scene where Marion beats up a volunteer extra? Did they cut it out? I demand a director's cut! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 1:57 AM

NOT THE MONKEY!!! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 2:05 AM

Cast Members should use a map model like this and a light staff to give directions to guests. Just saying. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 2:09 AM

A few Disney snakes for your viewing pleasure. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 2:16 AM

The iconic scene has arrived! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 2:24 AM

This hidden R2-D2 hieroglyph was actually part of the set. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 2:25 AM

Here's an amplified screenshot from the film to prove it. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 2:26 AM

However, this Mickey and Donald hieroglyph was unique to The Great Movie Ride. Was it trying to predict the future? #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 2:28 AM

"I see dead people." #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 2:30 AM

This all seems really familiar for some reason. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 2:34 AM

This is not going to end well. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 3:00 AM

That did not end well. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 3:03 AM

Actual footage of the Arc being put away in the Walt Disney Archives. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/13/2017 3:15 AM

Did someone say "Tarzan?" #Disneyland #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 3:15 AM

First reaction: I miss the Phil Collins music. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 3:16 AM

Something tells me Jane never really went to Africa... #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 3:24 AM

You know what this Tarzan movie could use? Some Tarzan. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 3:38 AM

Well he must be close! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 3:47 AM

Is that George of the Jungle? #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 3:48 AM

These ape costumes are so realistic! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 3:51 AM

"Adiga! Adiga! Adiga!" - Inspirational quotes by Tarzan. #GreatMovieMarathon

Una! Una! Una! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 3:58 AM

I see Johnny Weissmuller took Animal Kingdom's Walking with Giants tour. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 4:01 AM

Question: Who cuts Tarzan's hair? And does Superman have the same barber? #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 4:05 AM

Clayton! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 4:10 AM

Maureen O'Sullivan swears that Johnny Weissmuller did the yell live on set, so why does it sound so pre-recorded? #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 4:13 AM

Did anyone else just feel an awful lot of tension between Cheetah and Jane? #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 4:17 AM

Tony Goldwyn, who voiced Disney's Tarzan, is the grandson of Samuel Goldwyn (the "G" in MGM) who produced this film. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 4:22 AM

Okay... they've played these same scene for like 30-minutes now. Where's the plot? #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 4:24 AM

This was the first of 12 Tarzan films at MGM starring Johnny Weissmuller. They also remade it twice. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 4:34 AM

Warner Bros. 2016 adaption borrowed the name of Disney's TV series, "The Legend of Tarzan." #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 4:36 AM

Did someone say popcorn? #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 4:38 AM

That was one conveniently placed hippo. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 4:38 AM

This turned "King Kong" real fast! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 4:43 AM

Look! Jane is riding an elephant! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 4:49 AM

An elephant's graveyard, you say? #GreatMovieMarathon

8/13/2017 4:55 AM

Push play for "Casablanca" now! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 5:00 AM

Now that Epcot is putting movie-based attractions in World Showcase, how about a Rick's Cafe Americano in Morocco? #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 5:06 AM

Exit visa's aren't required to traverse World Showcase. Also America is just a hop, skip, and a jump from Morocco. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 5:20 AM

If they remake "Casablanca," they should hire Mo'Rockin' for this scene. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 5:30 AM

Sing along, folks. You know the words! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 5:33 AM

"Here's looking at you, kid." Best mid-line of a movie ever. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 5:39 AM

I want Casablanca's definition of a "Small discount" to come to Disney. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 5:57 AM

The original title for "Casablanca" was "Everybody Come to Rick's." #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 6:16 AM

Was an actual plane from "Casablanca" really in The Great Movie Ride? Yesterland has the scoop! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 6:25 AM

The case that has been made that establishing shots did use a real plane, even if it wasn't in the final scene. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 6:31 AM

Here it is! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 6:36 AM

"We'll always have Paris." #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 6:37 AM

Walt Disney would have loved a hill of beans. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 6:38 AM

"Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship." Best last line of a movie ever. #GreatMovieMarathon

Gorgeous piano music released in 1940 for "The Nutcracker Suite." #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:10 AM

Disney is currently in production on a franchise based on "The Nutcracker." #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:14 AM

A model sheet of the fairies from this sequence. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:16 AM

Nutcracker will be the 2nd segment from "Fantasia" to receive the live action treatment, but nobody remembers the 1st. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:20 AM

Not only is Yensid "Disney" spelled backwards, but the animators were also inspired by Walt with his raised eyebrow. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:21 AM

This short, windy segment of The Great Movie Ride was originally meant to be the cyclone from "The Wizard of Oz." #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:23 AM

The next season of "Making a Murderer." #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:26 AM

"The Sorcerer's Apprentice" was originally thought of as a short and "Fantasia" was born from this one idea. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:28 AM

Iconic. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:29 AM

Amateurs. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:30 AM

The Disneyland Records vinyl from "Rite of Spring." #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:36 AM

This marathon is all about GMR, but this sequence is a perfect time to mourne the loss of Universe of Energy. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:38 AM

I'm really going to miss these guys. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:43 AM

Universe of Energy pterodactyls. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:44 AM

Universe of Energy was basically bringing "Rite of Spring" to life. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:45 AM

A t-rex battling a stegosaurus. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:47 AM

A t-rex battling a stegosaurus. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:48 AM

If you're just joining us, that's your problem because you're late. And you think about that next time. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:49 AM

After closing Universe of Energy and Great Movie Ride, the traveling theater experience will be extinct. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:50 AM

Intermission. Time for some popcorn! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:55 AM

Did you know Fantasia was the first film in surround sound and that Fantasound returned in 2016? #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 7:57 AM

Fantasia's original release was very limited due to the cost of installing Fantasound in each theater. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 8:00 AM

This was the program given to guests who saw the original roadshow version of Fantasia. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 8:02 AM

"The Pastoral Symphony" on vinyl. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 8:05 AM

Arriving fashionably late. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 8:07 AM

It's clearly time for a nice Silverado. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 8:16 AM

For the 1982 rerelease, Fantasia was rescored. But the original 1940 recording is the version we're able to hear today. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 8:20 AM

I produce a very similar effect after a bowl of Fruity Pebbles. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 8:23 AM

Imagineering moment: How about a rainbow coaster themed to Fantasia? #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 8:24 AM

The "Dance of the Hours" sequence inspired a few floats in the nighttime parade Spectromagic. #GreatMovieMarathon

Mlle. Upanova and her beautiful ostriches! #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 8:32 AM

Remember that weird Fantasia video game from a few years ago? No? Me neither. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 8:35 AM

Behind the scenes of the live action segments. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 8:40 AM

Chernabog was prominently featured on this trippy poster from the 1969 rerelease. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 8:42 AM

"Night on Bald Mountain" was sometimes omitted from theatrical rereleases of Fantasia, being deemed too scary for kids. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 8:44 AM

Psychedelic imagery like this helped Fantasia become a cult classic in the 60's and 70's. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 8:45 AM

"Ave Maria" is the only choral piece in "Fantasia." #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 8:50 AM

In 1999, "Fantasia" finally got the second act Walt envisioned. #GreatMovieMarathon

8/13/2017 9:06 AM

Friendly reminder that Disney owns Marvel now. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:13 AM

The "Fantasia" segment of the ride was originally envisioned as the cyclone bringing you to Oz. #GreatMovieMarathon

"Toto, I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore." #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:21 AM

During after hours dining events inside the attraction, Glinda would occasionally make an appearance in Munchkinland. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:22 AM

One of the original munchkins paid a visit to the attraction in full costume. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:26 AM

When the attraction opened, the Wicked Witch of the West was the most advanced animatronic ever created. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:29 AM

This whole movie is about a pair of shoes. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:30 AM

8/13/2017 9:33 AM

Ray Bolger (Scarecrow) also starred in Disney's "Babes in Toyland." #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:39 AM

"Babes in Toyland" also featured a scene with talking trees. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:40 AM

The trees had a second act at Disneyland in an attraction where guests could explore the Toyland sets. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:41 AM

What many don't know is that "Babes in Toyland" was the final result of Walt Disney's attempt at making an Oz film. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:42 AM

An entire episode of "Disneyland" was spent announcing it, with Mouseketeers playing all the characters. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:43 AM

Annette played Ozma in the special. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:44 AM

A rare color photo from the special. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:45 AM

Before Disney's rights to the Oz books became public domain, the studio did make one film, "Return to Oz." #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:46 AM

Disneyland Records also produced multiple Oz storyteller records, including this one narrated by Ray Bolger. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:47 AM

And this one, which featured new recordings of the songs from the MGM film. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:48 AM

"There's the Emerald City! He must be a wonderful wizard to live in a place like that!" #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 9:55 AM

A pair of original Ruby Slippers were once on display in the queue of The Great MovieRide. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 10:01 AM

The sinking disappointment when the parks been closed for hours and they finally ask you to leave. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 10:03 AM

A close up of the Cowardly Lion's witch removal spray. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 10:13 AM

The insect the Witch referred to was a deleted song called "The Jitterbug." The original scene was lost to time. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 10:15 AM

"The Jitterbug" was released as a single by Judy Garland and she continued performing it live for many years. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 10:16 AM

Oz was MGM's response to "Snow White." They initially wanted the witch to be beautiful like the Evil Queen. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 10:20 AM

On ABC's "Once Upon a Time," the Evil Queen and Wicked Witch are sisters. See what they did there? #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 10:22 AM

Shirley Temple was MGM's top choice to play Dorothy, but Fox wouldn't loan her for the role. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 10:23 AM

The license to use Oz in GMR was reportedly for only 3 minutes of ride time. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 10:28 AM

The finale could have had more Oz, with the Wizard's head on the screen and animatronic Wizard behind a curtain. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 10:29 AM

Disney's "Oz the Great and Powerful" revealed how the Wizard and his balloon got to Oz. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 10:34 AM

Disney used a real hot air balloon to help promote the film. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 10:35 AM

Warner Bros. also used hot air balloon marketing for the 70th Anniversary home video release of "The Wizard of Oz." #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 10:36 AM

There's no place like Disney World. There's no place like Disney World. There's no place like Disney World. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 10:40 AM

"There's no place like home!" Best last line of a movie marathon ever. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 10:42 AM

Before we say goodbye, let's take one last look at the finale video. #GreatMovieMarathon
8/13/2017 10:43 AM
