  • Travel back through time.

    [YOUTUBE]http://www.youtube.com/v/n_Qa4U3HXFI[/YOUTUBE]
    This video is too nostalgic to pass up. This is from 1964.

    It has no sound at all.
    But very cool to see the old Entry gates and quite a few other interesting sights.

    That's an awesome video. Maybe Walt was in his apartment that day!

      Wow, that was probably one of the most complete and comprehensive videos I have ever seen. Very very nice, thanks for sharing that.
      Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

        Thanks for this great link, Tictoc! :bow: My first trip to Disneyland was a couple of years after this, so it really brings back a lot of memories for me. People can grouse about the skyway and how it looked, but until you were ON it, you wouldn't understand how much we old timers miss it. Also cool to see the old gates, the old rockets on the other side of Tomorrowland, the older Autopia cars, a young Tom Sawyer's Island, etc.

        At least the subs are coming back. I won't hold my breath on the Skyway or Peoplemover.

            this film is SO cool. a time capsule bringing back so many wonderful memories!

            i noticed the Wurlitzer store on Main Street, where you could buy a popular new organ or piano.

            how 'bout all that exciting Frontierland footage? Rainbow Ridge was full of life with so much activity, the Mine Train thru Nature's Wonderland and Pack Mules. Even the Mike Fink Keel Boats were a very sentimental sight. did you notice, as the Mark Twain passed, the roof of the Mansion could be seen over the tree tops of Tom Sawyer's Island, but there was NO New Orleans Square yet. today, we have Critter Country, where once an active and vibrant Indian Village came to life for Guests.

            and the little round shaped "buckets" on the skyway, Monorail "yellow", battleship grey subs, Fantasyland Autopia, Skull Rock and the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship, Mad Tea Party - then located directly behind King Aurthur's Carousel.

            those that can remember Fantasy In The Sky will agree that the firework shells used to travel much higher into the night sky and many were extremely larger "blossoms" than today's air launched versions.

            what a thrill this home movie is to watch. and i didn't really need the sound... i could imagine all of it as if i was there.

            a million thank you's for posting this!:bow:

            fond memories of the past, indeed.

                On my computer, it has sound. A high piercing sound. I had to turn the youtube volume all the way down. Bad to listen to. Great to watch.

                      Yes. I loved the shot of TL with the subs, monorail and skyway all going by at once. I loved those rides that let you travel around the park. Skyway, peoplemover, train, monorail. Now, basically, you have only the train. And half a monorail.

                        What an awesome short film. I began going to DL in 2000 and I long for the days that many of those old long gone attractions were around.

                        If they opened a third park in Aneheim, maybe a large part of it could be a tribute to the beloved long gone attractions. They could have a peoplemover surround the entire park with a sky way, old mine train, Adventure through inner space, a revised flying saucers attraction and others.

                        Thank you so much for sharing!

                          I love Frontierland back then and sooo wish there were more or like it was back then! Though my first trip to Disneyland was in 1975. I'm glad I experienced the Motorboats, Fantasyland Theatre, America Sings, Just to name a few.

                          The Skyway was always such a treat, a break but fantastic view of the park while gliding through the icy Matterhorn Mountain hearing the Yeti's scream at the bobsled riders. I loved that.

                            I miss the World of Motion too!! It just isn't the same. Tomorrowland was so much more alive back then. But with time somethings will return. The Submarine Lagoon is just the beginning.
