January 31, 1992 – Professor Barnaby Owl’s Photographic Art Studio Facility Opens in Disneyland
“Your custom photo is available at Professor Barnaby Owl’s Photographic Art Studio.”
On January 31, 1992, the photo facility Professor Barnaby Owl’s Photographic Art Studio opened at the exit of the Splash Mountain attraction of Disneyland. The facility sells souvenier photographs of guests while they ride the attraction, with the photos being taken when the ride goes down the final plunge. This is the first Disney attraction to offer this service; it has been replicated at the Walt Disney World and Tokyo Disneyland park, with the name changed to Splashdown Photos.
