  • [Question] 1764? Why?

    Does anyone know the significance of this seemingly blocked off archway in New Orleans Square ( or technically Frontierland, I can never tell) and the date 1764 engraved into it. I have asked CM's ever since I was a kid and no one has ever been able to tell me. It bothers me that it is clearly a date yet no one knows the significance.

    To answer this, I am quoting from HBG2's excellent "Long-Forgotten" blog, who in turn is quoting from an entry in Kevin Yee's book "101 Things You Never Knew About Disneyland:"

    The date 1764 was derived by subtracting 200 years from the birth date of one Imagineer who worked on the project.
    Editor's note: this was Matt McKim, son of legendary Imagineer Sam McKim.

                            That is also the year that Parliament enacted the Currency Act upon the Colonies that were settled in on the American East Coast.
                            Yaye!
