• February 2023 Nor Cal Disneyana Fan Club Meeting

    North Natomas Library

    Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay. My, oh, my, Feb. 11 promises to be a wonderful day — especially if you plan to join us at the North Natomas Public Library Meeting Room at 6:30 p.m. as we bid farewell to Disneyland’s beloved Splash Mountain.

    It should be a fun and Satisfactual meeting after a quick recap of current news, trip reports and show & tell. Please bring any Splash Mountain, America Sings or “Song of the South” items and your memories to share. Newcomers are welcome. Admission is free.

    Hope to see you Saturday, Feb. 11. RSVPs are encouraged so we have an idea as we set up the room.
