    Disneyland in the 80's

    I was wondering if anyone had any photos of Disneyland in the 80's. Specifically of Videopolis and the Tomorrowland stage. I spent my youth there during that time, but have no photos of it! Anyone else share fond memories of that time?

    I have pics somewhere, I'd have to dig them up. In a 1990's pic i have at DL's 35th anniversary, there is a sign in the background that says Videopolis. I don't have any specific pictures, i didn't even know it was still around in the 90's.

    I don't know when Videopolis closed. But I'd love to see your pictures.

    I also spent a bit of time at Videopolis and have the cool moves to prove it.

    But no pictures, sorry.

    Re: Disneyland in the 80's

    I was there several times in the 80's and remember a lot of the stuff that had come and gone up to that point as well as what's there now. I remember the cave's on Tom Sawyer Island were closed down and sealed, the PeopleMover/Rocket Rides building, the old outdoor stage on the lower level of Space Mountain, the "Shrinking Machine" as we all called it and the Skybuckets travelling through the Matterhorn, the old outdoor stage for rock concerts which is now the Fantasyland Stage. Wish I had pictures myself.

    I've got some somewhere; will have to dig for them. I frequented DL quite a few times in the 80's.

    Re: Disneyland in the 80's

    That would be great. I would love to see them. And yes luckytiff02, I think I did see those, thank you. My kids love to hear me talk about the "old Disneyland." We have the soundtrack for "America Sings", which they love and they cannot believe they would take that ride out (which of course, they've never been on.) so many memories...

    Re: Disneyland in the 80's

    I found a mps3 file of Videopolis Theme song.

    I had forgotten the song until I heard it again.

    "I'm going to the Top, Videopolis."
