    Nice work, but usually, timelines are presented in chronological, not alphabetical, order. Perhaps yours would benefit from doing the same? It certainly confused me at first.

          I know the work that goes into something like this. We did a timeline for our book about Disneyland, but never got to the print stage. It would be easier to read if it were in order by year, within area. The area breakdown is great, just have it year order within each land or area. Great work and it looks very neat and as far as I can see, pretty darn complete.

            Good idea, but as everyone said, being in chronological order would be awesome.

              Umm.... you forgot Tomorrowland... and should probably add the parking-lot to DCA since that was the most notable change for the worse!

              Also you may wish to put the Indian Village under CC, while it was Frontierland, CC now occupies it's location...
