My first ever food at Disneyland was at the old Aunt Jemima Pancake House. Thanks for the memory jog Regions!
In the Matterhorn aerial shot one can just make out the Motor Bot Cruise loading area as well as the Fantasyland Autopia loading area (the lines were always a bit shorter over there). As such, I'm thinking this pic may actually predate Harold the Yeti.
Well, the bobsleds seen in the aerial photo are the single ones (4 passengers) which were before the 1978 refurbishment. During the 1978 refurb, the bobsleds were changed to the "double sleds" (8 passengers) and the Yetis were added. So the aerial photo is from before 1978.
She's wearing the "Castle with Ten Stars" nametag..
Which means this picture was taken sometime between September 1977 and June 1978, as that nametag was worn only during those months. The classic Mickey "ta-dum" nametag appeared in at Disneyland and WDW in the summer of 1978 and was used as the default cast nametag (when no promotion was going on), for the next twenty years.
The Main St. Cinema ran some rarely seen footage as part of Disneyland's 55th birthday this past summer that included footage of the old Viewliner in action.
I seem to remember reading in one of Steve DeGateano's posts on this board that the current Tomorrowland Station platform was based on the old Viewliner station, and judging from that photo it sure does appear to be true.
Many thanks Regions.
Nice! I love that shot of the Viewliner...everything seems so...spacious. I was reading the Imagineering Disney blog and totally see what they mean by "clutter" and how it seems things have gradually been "cluttered" nowadays (recent case in point: Pixie Hollow's little river).
And I loved the picture with all the Disney characters. I would've loved a picture with Flower
