    Holidayland (Disneyland)
    Before New Orleans Square at Disneyland, there was Holidayland, a land that opened June 16, 1957. Holidayland is often referred to as the "lost" land of Disneyland. Holidayland had its own admission gate and could hold up to 7,000 guests, for large events. It also had playgrounds, horseshoes, baseball field, volleyball, and other activities. It was also noted because it was the only place in Disneyland that sold beer.
    Holidayland closed in 1961 due to its lack of shade, nighttime lighting, restrooms, and alleged lack of Disney "flavor".

    That's the same and only shot I have too, but I cropped and reduced it to a smaller file size. You can see Holidayland down on the lower right there.



    Though my files indicate it was taken in 1958. And the absence of the Matterhorn would support that.

    These are from the 50th book



    Is this haunted signature
    actually
    stretching?


    Or is it your imagination, hmm?

    I didn't know it was THAT huge!

    EDIT: Technically speaking, Holidayland has now been "replaced" with Festival Arena, Millionaire building, and Hollywood & Dine

    So, Did Disney own Holidayland? Why wasn't it on park maps?

    they owned it, it might not have been on the maps because it was kinda self contained and had its own entry
