    Progress forward yatta yatta yatta it is still part of the expirience that is changing. It's sad when nostalgic things get lost.

    Too late. I think the signs are in John Stamos's backyard already!

    Very sad to see this go. One last piece of the old era, unbelieveable.

    What was the reason for tearing it down? (I imagine it's some warped reason that only a Disney exec. would understand...)

    John Stamos wanted those signs to compliment the other one he's already got in his backyard!

    Depressing - - All the cool, historic elements of style will soon be gone from that complex. Are they going to slap up another funky glowing pixie dust trail or something?

    What a waste. There was no need for it to happen.

    In the last few years, the city of Hollywood has reignited some of the historic rooftop neon signs that had been left around town, most for business long gone. And they are beautiful. If they had been torn down carelessly like this, it would not have been possible.

    Shame the WDC doesn't appreciate its own history and beauty.

    Sad Re: Last Look at The Disneyland Hotel Sign

    I didn't think it would effect me like this, but I got a tear in my eye. I will always remember my first stay at the DLH in the early sixties,and that sign said we made it. I also remember all of the other trips when we could not afford to stay there and the longing for Mickey soaps and the Monorail entry to the park.

    Very Sad

    Re: Last Look at The Disneyland Hotel Sign

    like i said in a recent post, I don't think they would put a brand new shiney sign against the old dull hotel color, I think they are getting a new sign but keeping the same color and style, I can't see a new style sign being put on the hotel.

    I am so heart broken from this.

    I love the hotel sign.I have lived in Anaheim my whole life and my parents bowled down the street from there and I would always look for th sign and know how close I was to Disneyland.I spent a lot of time at the hotel.

    Times are changing.

    From a font perspective, it's sad to see those letters gone, as it's they were the last remaining icon of the 'classic' font. They will be missed.
