    does anyone know what the resturant dinning area was above the Jungle Cruise? Does not look like TT.

    That seating area was for the Adventureland Pavilion, the restaurant that preceded TT.

    re: Disneyland - Old Photos and Ephemera Thread

    For today, a look at New Orleans Square (my personal favorite area of the park):


    In the "no longer acceptable things" category, notice the shoe-shine boy in lower right corner.


    The Haunted Mansion facade circa 1963, not yet completed.


    Promotional image of the Blue Bayou restaurant


    A Ken Andersen sketch for the never-realized HM walkthrough concept.


    A few undead buccaneers enjoying some spirits of the liquid kind


    Bump bump...bump bump.....I miss this Bride version, myself. Constance is too..chatty.

    First pic: Hahahaha oh my gawwwd, that is crazy! How much things have changed.

    Second pic: The older bride had that morbidity that Constance lacks. I remember being stuck for five minutes at this part and as every second went by and every heartbeat sounded against her chest, I got more and more scared because I was convinced she was going to come alive at any minute.

    Constance is bleh.

    Such a great thread, RB! When you took those couple of days off I went into nostalgia withdrawal.

    If you haven't done so already, RB, you should talk to the Disney folks about publishing a coffee table-type book.

    They wouldn't be able to keep it on the shelves.

    I know I 'd buy a copy or two.

    re: Disneyland - Old Photos and Ephemera Thread

    For today, going slightly more recent in the scheme of things (that is, not the 50's and 60's heh)


    In the middle years between Rocket to the Moon and rather crappy pizza...


    The Matterhorn's added tribute to Frank Wells, President and CEO of Disney (along with Michael Eisner) from the early eighties to 1994. He died in a helicopter accident returning from skiing in Nevada and was a avid mountain-climbing enthusiast, hence his tribute placement.


    RD-D2 and C3P0 being prepared for their roles in Star Tours.


    Promotional ad that appeared in the Disney News magazine.


    Also from the Disney News, a rare shot of Main Street during the night/cleaning shift.

    It is actually possible there were four different models at Disneyland over the years. When it opened, WDW had a zombie/corpselike bride that was quickly gone and DL may have had her too. There was a faceless one with glowing eyes and a veil over face, then there was the sculpted one (who alternately had glowing eyes and a veil covering face, or this form pictured).

    Constance is either version 3.0 or 4.0 of the same character in terms of physical appearance.
