    Re: Disneyland Old Photos and Ephemera: The Resurrection

    It opened in 1991, and closed maybe in 95/96 for Hunchback merchandise to use the space, then reopened maybe 1998, then closed again forever around 2000. Some of the items went over to the 'Bat en Rogue' store with Haunted Mansion Holiday stuff first year of the overlay.

    That explains it - I think I only went to Disneyland once or twice in the 90's; my collection has a large gaping hole for that particular decade! Is that the shop that had an Evil Queen and cauldron in the window?

    I honestly don't recall the window displays, Dave, but it's certainly feasible. Inside they had a caged Old Hag figure from Snow White who was a limited animatronic. Decor was kind of generic stone gargoyles, candelabras and some tapestry type hangings.

    That's the one I was thinking of...the Old Crone. I have seen photos of her on other blogs...just not on mine!

    Re: Disneyland Old Photos and Ephemera: The Resurrection

    The Rainbow Ridge construction photos were from 1960? The 1959 Matterhorn scaffolding is still up, was there Matterhorn work a year after it opened - or did it not open until 1960? Maybe the 1960 RR construction began in 1959. I'm not sure which timeline is which.

    Sambo: That's not the Matterhorn; that's Cascade Peak under construction.

    Re: Disneyland Old Photos and Ephemera: The Resurrection


    Prior to the two 'revisions' of this scene (food and cat in fish barrels, Jack Sparrow and treasure map), this exhausted pirate was rather more intent on finding a 'fair maiden' who had managed to elude him and so constantly called out to guests as to her whereabouts. "It's sore I be to hoist me colors upon the likes of that shy little wench...".

    The dialogue and point of the scene was changed in the 1997 'politically correct' refurb, as it is commonly called.


    Publicity still for Captain EO, featuring Anjelica Huston and Michael Jackson.

    >headsmack< Thanks Dave, I was having a hard time having the picture make sense with my memory - and now it does! Cascade Peak it is.

    I wish they would build a new Cascade Peak!

    Re: Disneyland Old Photos and Ephemera: The Resurrection

    Sambo - before I knew about Cascade Peak, I often made the same error, especially since it is all but forgotten by the majority of guests who visit the park. Cascade Peak was a beautiful set piece for that area and really added a sense of excitement.

    Re: Disneyland Old Photos and Ephemera: The Resurrection

    Thanks for those great photos of Rainbow Ridge and Cascade Peak. I also miss Cascade Peak. The Matterhorn's "little brother." They were built about a year apart or so, with presumably the same construction techniques; why did the Matterhorn last all this time while Cascade Peak deteriorated to the point it had to be torn down?

    I've wondered the same thing. Cascade Peak added so much depth to the area, and was a nice counterpoint to its alpine "big brother". Sure would be nice if it could make a return.

    Re: Disneyland Old Photos and Ephemera: The Resurrection

    Cascade Peak was both smaller physically than the Matterhorn, and ran a lot more water through the entire inner space, more or less. (as opposed to select parts like 2 singular and rather narrow waterfalls away from ride mechanisms, and the splashdown pond).

    Doubtless that was a factor in any internal rot/structural decay, which I've always heard as the reason for removing it.

    Jungle Cruise attraction entrance in the 80's.


    A very nice aerial view of the park from 1956.
