  • [Fun] Disney Family Museum Disneyland Model

    Here's a site with some photos of the new Disneyland model at the Walt Disney Family Museum (opening tomorrow).

    This isn't a model of Disneyland at any particular point in history; it's a model of the "idealized" Disneyland that Walt might have imagined.

    Note that many of the attractions are "opened up," showing stylized, action-packed interiors--sort of like the Sam McKim maps of old.

    Enjoy!

    That is truly a work of art. Can't get enough of it. I think I might go to the museum at some point just for that!

      The only thing that seems strange is what appears to be a hightened forced perspective down Main Street. This will get the rumor mills in high gear.

        Oh, yeah, just noticed that as you said that. From this point on I guess we just have to ignore anyone that uses this model as their citation to support some myth of untrue fact.

          You mean Space Mountain never looked like that?

            This model would be a good blueprint for the Imagineers to follow in order to "update" Disneyland.

              BUT WERES TEH BUZZ LIGHTYEAR RIDE?!?

              No, but seriously, I need to see this. I'm planning on visiting as soon as I get a chance, maybe in December.

                Beautiful. But the scale is kinda wonky, mostly on the interiors. Mr. Lincoln is the size of Paul Bunyan, and the Wicked Wench is equivalent to the Titanic! I guess it was done to make the interiors have more impact.

                  Think the Sam McKim Park maps...

                    No Star Tours? Or Indiana Jones?

                        I think it's a fair trade.

                          Oh wow...

                          I got chills just looking at this. Yeah, it's a bit wonky, but it's just so amazing looking. Not exact, but it is kind of like how you would envision the park, both the outside and inside of various rides.

                          Reality with a dash of fantasy. Just like Walt.

                            If they'd put a Fantasmic dragon on the tip of Tom Sawyer Island, I could get on board.

                                  Totally, completely agreed. Maybe one day...

                                  This model looks amazing. Thank you so much for taking these pictures.

                                    Not to sound like a know-it-all or anything, I'd say that this model represents Disneyland around the late 1970's, Pre-Fantasyland 1983 makeover. No Toontown, none of it.

                                    Anyway, it said it was the way Walt probably would have wanted it to be. Nonetheless, it looks great.

                                      Wow, if and when I do go see it I think they'll have to pry me off the glass as I'm screaming "whyyy why can't it be this way today!!!"

                                        I think we've had a miscommunication - it was a sarcastic imitation of an imaginary poster who would be put off by the model's absence of some of Disney's more recent..."creativity." Your analysis is rougly correct - I was thinking more late 60s. The mine train was still there, so it can't be the late 70s, and Space Mountain features a variation on the attraction's earlier designs. I'm sure the modelers didn't intend to nail down a specific year, but the very late 60s or very early 70s seem like as good an estimate as any.
