    re: Disneyland - Old Photos and Ephemera Thread

    To give some context to the "coming attractions" map above: It appears the only attraction in River Town was to be a "Magnetic House", potentially similar to the Mystery Shack attraction at Knott's I am thinking.

    Magnolia Park is modern day New Orleans Square/Pirates entrance, and River Town would take up the area roughly of the Haunted Mansion exterior and small park next door. The Indian vilage and surroundings now house Splash Mountain and Critter Country.

    Not quite Regions. Magnolia Park is there today. It's the small area directly in front of New Orleans Square/Frontierland Station, exactly as it appears in this map. It's got a few benches and a small fountain. Pirates is the area to left on this map of Magnolia Park. River town is (except for Fowler's Harbor which IS there) is where the Haunted Mansion sits.

    I know I'll be lambasted for this, but I still prefer this original hub. The unobstructed view from Town Square to the castle was beautiful.
    As always, your contributions are greatly appreciated.

    The Carousel of Progress awaits visitors


    Only photo I have seen featuring this little vignette (far left side of the photo) near the Chicken of the Sea pirate ship: a treasure chest and some shovels where tuna-loving pirates seemingly had been at work.

    You can. It was made available on DVD on the Disney Treasures set called Disneyland: Secrets, Stories and Magic.

    Nice seeing your newest stuff here Regions. I was asking around about you at the Mice Chat 6th Anniversary event on Sunday. I was hoping to meet you. Maybe next time.

    Nice pics Regions.
    John Meloch (the Polka bandleader featured on Thursday nights) put out at least 2 records between 1951 and 1958, but that Polka stuff was a 'dance fad' that didn't catch on until the Punk rockers of the late 1970's sped the beat up and began 'Pogoing' to it! As always, Walt was ahead of his time once again.
    It brings back warm memories to see that Pendleton sign in Frontierland. As a kid, I always wanted to buy one there, but never had the dough.
    Thanks for sharing these.

    That's a nice addition Bob, and it's nice to see your name back on the boards again.
