    Pictures from the Disneyland Hotel.. late 60's / early 70's

    Here's some pictures that I scanned recently from my grandfathers slide collection. I'm not sure what year these were taken, but from the styles that are evident here, I'm thinking sometime between 68 and 74. Enjoy.

    Wow, these pictures are amazing. Although I love the hotel now, the way it looked back then is some reminiscent of first generation Tomorrowland. Thanks for sharing!
    Woof!

    Boy...you forget how RED those early 1970's were until you look at some vinatage shots. I remember being very red just before 1974 when we took a trip up to the World's Fair.

    When we came back, I think I was orange.

    Great shots! Thanks for sharing them!

    You must pick another color before giving Oogieboogie Rep again.

    Yah you can really tell the film was by Kodak. Kodak film uses a lot of red in it while Fuji film uses a lot of greens. That's how you can tell the 2 apart.

    Of course, the feeling in "Orange" County back in that day, in the midst of the cold war, was "better dead than..."

    Most folks probably don't remember that there was a radio station in the old Disneyland hotel circa the late 60's. The now defunct KEZY AM 1190 had studios there near the Monorail platform as I recall, before their eventual move to Ball Road at East Street. I remember it well..."And the temperature now, high atop the Magic Kingdom, is 56 degrees"....

    Again a bit off-topic...And an old Long Beach station, KNOB-FM, had studios in the old Hyatt House that used to be across the street on Harbor Boulevard...just north of the Grand Hotel.

    Both long gone, along with the great old Disneyland Hotel sign.

    Oogie Boogie, as usual your pics bring back lots of great memories for me...red, green, black, white...misty water color memories...of the way we were...Can it be that it was all so simple then...OOPS.

    I'll stop now...

    No, just a smaller man-made "marina"...there was a campground not far away as well...if oldhotelguy's around, he'll straighten us all out...
