Welcome to Al's DisneyFans.com!
Welcome to one of the oldest Disney fans sites on the internet!
This site started out as a free home page at GeoPages (later known as GeoCities)
in late 1995, and moved around a bit before ending up at disneyfans.com
in 1998. Things have been dorment here since 2009, but I am now starting
to clean things up and refresh the site for 2018 and beyond.
This site contains over 76,000 (actually, way more these days)
digital pictures taken at Disney and other theme parks and places. Read
a few Articles; visit the Audio
Gallery to download Pirates and Haunted Mansion songs; the Disneyland
Resort, Walt Disney World, and Other

and need Hosting, drop me a note.

9:05 AM - WDW photos being updated.
My non-Disney Theme Park gallery now contains over 29,000 photos. It has been recently updated and is at:
My Walt Disney World gallery is currently being re-uploaded with, for the first time, the photos from 1996-1998 broken out into their own yearly directories. Most images have also been renamed to contain the year the photo was taken, though many photos lost this data long ago (1999 seems to have also had an issue - almost none of the photos I took that year have dates in them).
Also, I am posting weekly photo essays to my http://www.parkhopping.com
domain. There's posts scheduled through May 2019 already, so please drop by. I will be sharing stories I have never told publicly. It's also a good look at what things were like 22 years ago at Disneyland and Walt Disney World when I started taking digital pictures in the parks.

11:50 AM - The end of DisneyFans.com in 2019 or 2020?
This site is huge and is made up of hundreds of pages, templates, library items and custom scripts. That's what happens when you start a website in 1995 before the great technology we have today. I started using Macromedia Dreamweaver 3 as a way to manage the site when it first grew too large to hand-edit. I am now using an old version of Adobe Dreamweaver CS4, and this ancient version will stop working when the next Mac OS X version comes out. Adobe does not support older versions, and there is no longer a way to buy a new version. You have to rent it month-to-month, at a far greater cost than buying a copy every few years when I had to.
This is going to present a problem for this website. If anyone knows of any tools that are as capable as Dreamweaver (specifically, Template and Library item support), I'd love to hear from you. The though of hand-converting hundreds of web pages to a new system is not something I want to do.
In a year or so, when this happens, I'll have to decide to just leave the site as-is, or spend time and money to update it. I know I want to at least keep the legacy pages -- this is one of the older Disney fan sites on the internet and it has some interesting historical content.
Now that I get a warning every time I open Dreamweaver, I've decided it's time to start thinking about what to do next.

3:30 PM - Visit my new photo blog, parkhopping.com!
Many years ago, I registered ParkHopping.com with plans of moving this site over there. At the time, there were concerns that Disney was going after websites that used "disney" in the title. In the end, though, I decided I had too many links to my site (including links from former Disney animators) and decided to just keep things here.
If you visit http://www.parkhopping.com
you will now find some photo essays starting with my earliest digital photos in 1996. I hope to write about all kinds of things I have documented over the years. Drop by and let me know what you think. It may take me awhile to get started, but I have a few posts up so far and plan to post new ones as often as I can.
