Disneyland Rarities, Pt. 3
Let’s head to Adventureland for even MORE shopping today! The skulls at the bridge let you know that you’ve arrived into a world of exotic treasures. The next two shots are only a fraction of the fantastic trinkets available to you at Disneyland’s Adventureland.
On another topic, many of you Disneyland fanatics are aware of Don Ballard, who has toiled endlessly to preserve the history of the original Disneyland Hotel. Don was fortunate to have stayed many times at the Disneyland Hotel in its pre-1999 format and experienced many of Jack Wrather’s amenities. He loved the Monorail Café and the Olympic Pool as well as the old Garden Villas and Suites. He was also fortunate to stay in the North Garden Villas the last night they were open to the public in May of 1999.
Though sad to see the historical section of the Disneyland Hotel removed, he understood the need for change. He and his family love the new Neverland Pool and Downtown Disney. If you are able, please join Mr. Ballard in the Bidwell Forum of the Glendora Pubic Library for a very special multi-media presentation about the past, present and future of the Hotel.

Don hopes that with this presentation, he can rekindle your fond memories of happy times spent at the original Disneyland Hotel.
