    Today's images both include the Matterhorn. Feel free to wear your lederhosen and imitate the abominable snowman's growling.


    Very nice aerial photo showcasing the track layout from above


    And one of the most obscure/rare images I have (sorry for the small size): a Star Tours flight simulator vehicle being lowered into position.

    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.

    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.

    Anyone feel like a ride on the Viewliner? (a not very photographed element of the old days...but then, only open 16 months roughly)

    What's odd to me is that the Viewliner only gets a passing mention at best in most Disney books and films, despite being the precursor to the Monorail. Great Pic!

    Also, the Star Tours stimulator pic is cool. Good job finding that. Any idea where it came from? Looks like an official image, but one can't be sure.

    Keep up the great work, I'm always surprised by what I see in this thread.

    Thank you for commenting! That picture was a very small insert (hence the graininess) in a old issue of Disney News, just in kind of the "round up" section as I recall.

    re: Disneyland - Old Photos and Ephemera Thread

    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.

    re: Disneyland - Old Photos and Ephemera Thread

    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
