Every now and then, I get a surprise batch of slides that create one of those "wow!" reactions; the kind that you open the box, hold them up to the light, and with each one you are amazed at what the photographer captured. This is such a bunch. Hope you enjoy 1966; we’ll be hanging here for a few days. To start off our journey, we enter the Disneyland Hotel. The signage matches the iconic sign seen at the park entrance. Shot #2 is also of the hotel, which has already corrected the neon signage for "Hotel Disneyland" to read "Disneyland Hotel." LOVIN' the vintage cars here.
Once our family checked in, it was time to either take the tram or the Monorail into the park; here’s the Monorail Station and a few trams visible in the background.
Oops...look like the need to read the signage a little better...gotta’ follow that arrow over to the entrance. Damn those attraction posters look great...so many exciting things to see!
OK, they've made it into the park! And what’s the first thing they see! No, not a Year of a Million Dreams banner or a 300 pound guest eating a churro...it’s the E.P. Ripley, rolling into the Main Street Station!
Here’s a nice closeup of the Station Stats, taken from the train; already up to 50,000,000!
And for my buddy George, here’s a similar contemporary view:
