Disneyland, WDW, Universal and More from Many Years Ago!

Postby jedimaster1227 » Thu Jun 21, 2018 12:52 pm

Over the last year, I've been going through my family's old photos to see if they had any historical photos from their trips to the parks in their lives. Fortunately enough I've struck a goldmine with different members of the family and they've been gracious enough to let me share them here!

Starting with photos from my wife's family, we found some really neat photos from Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood and even a few from the Magic Kingdom and the Miami Seaquarium!

I stared at this photo for a long, long time when I first found it!

It is neat to see the Submarine Voyage from its years pre-Finding Nemo!

Main Street USA in Disneyland!

The Mark III monorail traveling over Fantasyland near it's a small world.

The famous Disneyland entrance.

Here's a real gem! These are the geysers from the Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland!

The Haunted Mansion's exterior hasn't changed too much since this photo was taken...

America on Parade in Disneyland!

Look at the Sunkist Citrus House sign (now used for the Carnation Café sign)!

Not the best photo but still worth including for the costumes.
40ED2EAB-5A9F-4018-A72C-7158C4ABAF40.jpeg
These characters were so abstract in their design!

America on Parade passing the French Market Restaurant.

This parade was pretty incredible!

And kind of all over the place...
8694E749-D91D-43E0-81BC-B98BCA3CD0BD.jpeg
Really all over the place.

An old telephone?

I believe this was the Parting of the Red Sea scene from the Universal Studios Hollywood Studio Backlot Tram Tour.

The western town sets are still onsite too.

There was an actual steam train onsite?
