Aerial Shot, 1963

New Orleans Square is also in its earliest stages of being built. Looking back at the “big picture,” you can also get a good idea of how the Disneyland Hotel looked originally. Obviously, it has changed much over the years.
As a bonus, I am throwing in a few early morning shots of the Castle and Central Plaza:
See more vintage & current Disneyland photos at my regular website. “Nightmare Before Christmas” fans—this Tim Burton classic is now available on Blu-ray, and also features a way cool tour of the Haunted Mansion (NBC version). Available at Amazon.com.
