  • [Pictures] Disneyland (and more) photos from the 1980's

    These first two are actually from the 1970's, my mom and dad at Disneyland:





    Onto the 1980's...

    My mom and I at Knott's:



    Knott's:



    It's a Small World:



    Back when guests didn't sink the boats:



    The castle. Has it changed much?




    The old subs, before everything had to have cartoon characters:



    Riding the motorboats beneath an old Monorail model:



    Tomorrowland...in the past:



    Do they still have the band on the Mark Twain?



    Mickey floral. This has been relatively constant over the years I imagine:





    Baloo!



    This kind of interaction with characters is much rarer nowadays, with meet & greets being far more controlled:

      Sea World:









      Some more of Knott's:





      The Disneyland parking lot! Ah, memories...



      Motorboat cruising again:



      This was taken in 1983, I can tell from the banner (cut-off here, but visible in other shots):



      Donald has changed a bit since then: [Edit, it's Dewey. I've never seen the nephews in the park so I assumed it was the big D]



      My classic, and beloved, Goofy hat:



      And what's this in the background? Just one of my favourite, and most missed, attractions of all time - Adventure Thru Inner Space:



      Easter photo-ops:





      There was Robin Hood character dining:

            And finally, the money shot.

            The Skyway, the People Mover, and the Monorail in action together.

            I miss that element of the old Tomorrowland, so many things moving, the land was full of life:

                  Thanks, I fixed that.

                  Oh, and Mickey hasn't changed, my dad is just nine feet tall

                      Is that Monorail Green?

                      And what's this in the background? Just one of my favourite, and most missed, attractions of all time
                      Mine is the Peoplemover

                      Donald has changed a bit since then
                      Are you sure? I think it might be Dewey, he is wearing a cap

                        I love the People Mover, if I didn't get my fix in Orlando I might put it ahead of Inner Space.

                        I think you're right about Dewey. I don't think I've ever seen the nephews in the parks, so I just assumed it was Donald.

                          Thanks for the pics!
                          I used to drive those subs in 1983, back when they emitted nasty fumes.

                              What about me? What am I, chopped liver?

                              The photo, incidently, is from Thumper's Easter Egg Hunt. I have vague, but fond memories of it.

                              I suppose if they did an Easter event nowadays, they'd close Disneyland early and charge extra for a special after hours Easter egg hunt & fireworks...
