    Color Coded Lands

    Does anyone else remember when each land in Disneyland had it's own color painted on the ground? It matched with the color of that area on the free map so you could always tell what land you were in by looking at the ground?

    Am I crazy remembering this or does anyone else remember it too?

    I vaguely recall that. I think it's kinda cool nowadays that the lands each have their own different pavement, though. Just wish the paving stones in Tomorrowland were easier on the feet.

    The maps today are still color coded. But I don't think I would need colored walkways to know where I'm going.

    The patios for the eateries used to have a slurry paint on them, but I don't remember if they were color coded.

    I would hope the surroundings of each land were enough to make for easy, proper identification...

    I think it was more to make it easy to figure out where you were on the actual map than to know which land you were in. In other words, if the ground is green, you are in this quarter of the map....etc...

    Yeah I loved the pirate ship and Skull Rock. Also the Tuna sandwiches were really good at the pirate ship.

    Re: Color Coded Lands

    I remember when whole lands had a single color of slurry. I don't remember if they were color coded. I only remember green and red being used (and maybe blue?). I like the pavement upgrades made in recent years, though.

    I don't know if anyone else remembers how the old maps were a little more like booklets with a fold out out map (and not just a fold out map like today). At least, the ones from the late '80s/early '90s had each land's listing color coded (Main St is red, Critter Country is brown, etc). So all attraction, shop, and restaraunt name was in that specific color font (and even included short descriptions). They even had logos for the lands (DRR for Main St, Space Mountain and a Starspeeder for Tomorrowland) and the Disneyland Hotel was shown on the map (complete with its own listings and logo).
