    Great post. Spent too much time watching videos. Unfortunately, the Old Matterhorn video was removed from youtube. I would have liked to see that. I do remember when the matterhorn was hollow.

    This is so awesome. Thank you very much CAspace for all your time and effort. No big deal, but the Plaza Gardens- Disneyland "Date Night" 1962 footage is not Plaza Gardens. It's Tomorrowland. You can see the Monorail Station and the Skyway in the background. =)
