Welcome to Disneyland, February 1963!

Daveland presents a one-day trip to Disneyland, circa February 1963. You’ve just stepped of your Disneyland Hotel Tram and can’t wait to enter the park! The Flying Saucer & Autopia attraction posters whet your appetite even more. Not much to see today in Town Square, so we'll just board the Omnibus and keep on going.

“Hi! We’re having a great time today!” entering Adventureland; and it will only get better! Sadly, it’s too early in the park’s history for a Dole Whip!

Choices, choices...the Columbia or the Mark Twain? For Daveland, 9 times out of 10 the Mark Twain is the vehicle of choice on the Rivers of America. Now if those Keelboats came back, that’d be a different story.

Over near the Autopia, it’s practically a mob scene for one of the 3 Little Pigs; do they even circulate anymore at the park?

Saving the best for last; totally loving the Skyway moving gently over the Monorail, as guests view down into the Submarine Lagoon.

So ends our tour of 1963; hope you enjoyed! To see more vintage & current Disneyland photos, visit my website.

Great stuff, but that Monorail/Skyway picture is extra nice! I must not be very observant, there's that mask hanging from the tusks in the photo of the Adventureland entrance. It was obviously there for many years!

Nice set of pic Dave, our photographer seemed to focus on transportation, which is super for me, love the exit action on the tram shot. Ditto Major on the Monorail/Skyway picture, the best for last!

Thanks Dave!

This is the Disneyland of my day. Just like the people running of the the tram... it was like that for me... could not wait to get thru the gates. Great memories and a truly awesome post Dave. Thanks.

Hey! All of those people are getting off on the wrong side of the tram!
