  • What was happening at Disneyland when you were born?

    And you'll have to tell us what year you're talking about! :evil:

    What to do:

    -Look around on the web for information regarding park specials, parades, rides, shows, restaurants, ticket prices (anything really) that was happening in the park the year you were born. You can even include events/etc. that were before you were born.
    -Then, post your findings in here (with sources cited, please!).

    Simple as that.

    I'll start.


    In 1985:

    Frontierland Shootin' Exposition was renamed Frontierland Shootin' Arcade

    Park admission was $17.95, which would be $35.06 today (according to this government inflation calculator)

    Adventure Through Inner Space closed

              Fantasyland '83 is the only real thing I can think of which is major.

              No Electrical Parade.

                1961 - I found something online that says the Flying Saucers were coming in 1961. That's about all I can find! ha! I AM OLD!

                  I was born in 1968. I don't know what was going on then. It was the summer of love (or was that 67?) and people were too worried about hippies back then to be concerned with Disneyland.

                  Although I do remember when it cost $8 to get in.

                    http://users.sisna.com/matkinson/Pages/1985.html has listings for every year the park has been open, up until 2005. I found it using google (search "Disneyland in ____", where the blank is your birth year).

                    Whereas http://www.islandnet.com/~kpolsson/disland/dl1985.htm provides a very detailed list of events, and so forth, that happened at the park. This site covers 1952-2007. I know... 1952?? Check it out. It's interesting.

                        I'm confused - you were born in 1967 and in 1977?

                          So, then... 1977, I presume?

                          Uhh... and I think that would be that the Peoplemover re-opened with Space Mountain. The PM was closed during SM's construction, due to the fact that SM was in the way of the PM track, and they re-worked the Peoplemover track to go through Space Mountain. (no offense meant, just clarifying that fact. correct me if I'm wrong, though...)

                            You're probably right about this, but Cid, what do you have to say???
