    Disneyland Pictures 1980's - 1990's

    I got my hands on some old pics... They aren't very clear in a lot of cases, but still good enough to get an idea of what things looked like back then. I'm not 100% sure on the dates, but they are close!

    1984 -
    The Castle:


    Main Street U.S.A.:


    1985 -
    Chip/Dale Tickling Me:


    Entry from the main street train station (I think):


    Dopey!


    More to come in a few minutes.

    Very cool.

    I also hate the rock entry to Tomorrowland.

    Thanks for posting!

    Wow, and people complain about the decorations today? Compared to a LED sign and giant strings of balloons over Main Street, and having a sign on the Matterhorn, I'd say today's decorations are downright classy.

    And I never knew the subs were once yellow before they reopened as the Nemo subs! Interesting...

    And forget the PeopleMover... it'd be great to have paddle boats at the Disneyland Hotel again!

    The 1980s/early 1990s sure looked like a great time to be at Disneyland...

    Haha - I kinda liked the balloons. The big sign on the Matterhorn was a little too much though!

    So much action in Tomorrowland back then... Peoplemover, Skway, Monorail, Rockets...

    Wow it's amazing how recently the middle of the Disneyland Hotel looked like that. Awesome pics. Thanks for sharing. I still remember that counter board over the main entrance. Wasn't that back when they were giving away a car every day for a whole year to celebrate the 30th anniversary?

    What really bothers me is that I vividly remember all this, and more. My boys are about your age and we went a couple of times a year, every year, back then. I then moved away for 5 years or so and when I moved back, rocks, rocket rods that didn't work, peoplemover gone, skyway gone, oh the humanity!!!

    We stayed at the hotel back in the early 70's and my brothers and I rented the paddle boats for a while. I remember them all too well, if only I could find all my old Disneyland photos...

    Actually, they're not bad at all. Though Snow White's watch is what's truly doing it for me...and the fact that they're in Tomorrowland.

    I had the same experience... Went from 95 to 2003 without going. It was a shocker. :-/

    Great pictures! Thanks for sharing them! I actually think the balloons over Main Street are kinda cool, I had no idea they ever did that haha
    All this has happened before, and it will all happen again. But this time it happened in London. It happened on a quiet street in Bloomsbury. That corner house over there is the home of the Darling family. And Peter Pan chose this particular house because there were people here who believed in him.
