    Interesting bit of Disneyland trivia I just learned

    I was watching the US Festival 1983 on VH1 Classic and they've been popping up bits of trivia here and there and one caught my attention. For those who don't know what that was, US Festival 1983 was a 3 day concert put on Memorial Day weekend in 1983 by Steve Wozniak of Apple. He did it just for fun to have a big concert and bring people together. Back then, festival shows were few and far in between. The last big one before this I think, was Woodstock. Anyhow, artists such as INXS, U2, Berlin, The Scorpions, Judas Priest, English Beat, The Divinyls, Men at Work, Missing Persons, Stevie Nicks (and more) performed over those 3 days.

    Ok here's the Disneyland trivia...

    The stage used for the US Festival 1983 went on to become the Fantasyland Theatre stage at Disneyland.

    I'm not sure if the stage has had any total rebuilds, but that original stage was the one all those bands performed on at US Festival 1983. I think that's pretty freaking sweet.

    My source? The thing that popped up on the screen that said "US Festival 83 Trivia: The US Festival stage went on to become the Fantasyland stage at Disneyland."
