The Disneyland Stagecoach, August 1956



Until 1960, it was possible to ride a Stagecoach like this and tour the sights of Frontierland.

The "wilderness" really seems to go on and on behind the Stagecoach. Pretty convincing for little Disneyland.

Hey Dave- in looking at this image it is much more rare than just the Stage Coach. It appears that the wagon is a yellow buckboard style wagon and the Stage Coach is in the background. I believe the yellow wagon was used in the opening day parade and then it appears it was used to run the trails of the Rainbow Desert. I would date this photo to 1955 or 1956.

You are correct on the date; as this entry states, the date on the slide is August 1956. Thanks for the extra info again, as always!

I have an early souvenir slide that calls this the "Yellowstone Coach".
