    1957 Disneyland Hotel Footage: Mouseketeers March & Roll Call

    From the 1957 Telerama fundraiser for the City of Hope Hospital in Duarte, California. This show was broadcast live in Southern California with portions coming from the Disneyland Hotel. Air dates were June 22 & 23, 1957. This reminds me of the Disneyland opening day footage....both in Kinescope and both had the numerous errors with the hosts speaking when they thought they were off camera, etc. Still a lot of fun though.

    I especially liked seeing Bonita Granville again. Everybody in my family still refers to the DLH south tower as the "Bonita" tower, and the steak house as "Granville's Steak House."

    Me too and what's funny, so do some of the veteran cast members at the Hotel as well.

    How great was this! Thanks for sharing! I grew up in Anaheim in the 60s and early 70s and seeing the hotel and the landscape around the hotel is so cool. Was a great place to grow up.

    So you saw the buidling boom going on. Must have been sad to see all the orange trees removed.

    Absolutely. Sometimes it's hard to connect with present day Anaheim. It's so different, esp. in that area around the park. I have those occasional deja vu moments when I'm there though.

    I have many aerials from 1954 to present times and it always seems sad to me as I watch one orange grove after another disappear as the years roll by. I have some very early footage of the Hotel and it actually shows ladders and trucks still working the orange trees on the unused Hotel property.

    I do miss the fragrance of orange trees here in the county. Occasionally you'll catch the aroma here and there, but not as frequently as you used to. I, too, have seen pictures of Anaheim at the time the park was being built. It looked really pretty. It is a shame that Walt couldn't buy up more property to buffer the park a little more though.
