So it seems that 1959, the year I was born was a pretty big year for Disneyland.
The Disneyland Monorail opened in 1959 along with the Matterhorn Bobsleds and the Submarine Voyage. That was at the time the largest expansion of Disneyland since the park's opening in 1955
These rides were built to last because I just rode them all in their current versions when I was there about a month ago! Of course I have ridden them all many times over the years, but it's nice to know that classic's like these were born at the same time as me! I just hope that I can age as gracefully as the rides!
