    Re: what happened in Disneyland the year u were born

    Being that tomorrow is my birthday this thread seems appropriate! Sadly, apparently 1968 was a slow year foe Disneyland.

    Disneyland held it's first Patrick's Day Parade and Cinco de Mayo Parade. The Monorail got new Mark III trains, the Autopia got redesigned, and the Kennel got renamed as the Kennel Club. Also the Wurlitzer store on Main Street closed.

    What a boring year.

    1972, the year Country Bear Jamboree opened at Disneyland.


    It's 16 miles to Disneyland, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses.

    Hit It.

    Looking into the history books, 1966: The jetpack guy flew around Disneyland, It's A Small World opened as well as The Primeval World Diorama attraction. Sadly, Walt Disney died a few months after I was born.

    Wow, 1972 was an auspicious year. The Main Street Electrical Parade began and Bear Country (and the Country Bear Jamboree) opened. Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes began running that year, too.
