Disneyland Construction Series: More Stuff, Pt. 2



It’s the final post in this series, and just like yesterday, totally random. First up is the Adventureland Restaurant that eventually became the Tahitian Terrace. Hard to believe that the Plaza Pavilion is on the other side of this building!

Over at the roundhouse, the Ripley & C.K. Holliday are getting ready to begin the Grand Circle Tour:



And three shots featuring the Mark Twain along a very barren Rivers of America. The last shot is somewhat of a mystery to me, as it appears that there are guests in the park. It was either taken at a later date from the others or is part of an early park preview:







And of course, Happy Mother’s Day! Take time to appreciate your mother today. See more vintage & current Disneyland photos at my regular website.

Shockingly good images Dave. Thanks for posting them.

As for the crowds on the Mark Twain, is there any record of Walt giving the studio employees a day to take their family to a pre-opening trial run of the park?

Walt and Lillian celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary at the still uncompleted park on July 13th, along with invited guests. I believe that the train and the Mark Twain were about the only things that were available for people to ride. Could that last picture be from that day?

Could that be Lillian in foreground?

I wonder if the speeder shown out front of the roundhouse is the same yellow one that was eventually given to Ollie Johnston.
