    Wow. The forced perspective combined with the haze and graininess of the film really make the castle look like its miles down Main Street.



    After seeing the footage from 5:23, I still cannot believe the PM and the Skyway still have their detractors. The park looked so magnificent from that height, especially at night. So heartbreaking to know we'll never have that again.

    Some interesting stuff in there.
    At the 21 second mark you can just make out an attraction poster for the original flying saucers.
    At around 2:15 you can see that the haunted mansion facade has already been constructed.
    The center guide rails have yet to be constructed on Autopia.
    This is a very nice share. thanks.

    You know the person who put the video up is not a Disneyland Buff ... when he/she states .. it's the park in the late 60s/early 70s .. or 1960 (in the title) - LOL

    If it was ... then New Orleans Square had a special magic "cloak" to show nothing more than a construction fence. And the New Tomorrowland is also mysteriously cloaked to look like TL pre 1966 .. even the Peoplemover is cloaked.

    With the Haunted Mansion exterior .. just complete, with the rest of N.O.S. as nothing more than a short construction fence ... you know it's 1963.

    (Autopia guiderail went in - 1964, with a new fleet of cars, different than what's seen in the video ... is another indicator ... it's 1963.)

    To think the facade sat there for around 6 years is pretty crazy. It would be cool if Disney did this now, yet people would get to frustrated over that.

    First thing I noticed? How put together all the guest look, everyone is dressed very nice. Not one sloppy bum in the whole film.

    We had a lot of Smog back in the 60's, I think that it's visible in this old footage, and it does make the castle look very far away.

    We actually have some of these in our family. My dad shot a lot of 8mm vacation film when we were growing up. We have Disneyland, San Diego Zoo, and Sea World film from the 60s and 70s. At some point I need to go through some of our films and maybe put some on youtube as well. Everything was transferred to DVD several years ago.
