Post Card-a-rama

Here are some post cards from the late 80's and early 90's. The first one is from 1987. In Tomorrowland you can see a '57 Chevy Teal colored PeopleMover train just exiting from PSA's America The Beautiful and crossing over the entrance. Can't you just hear the narration? "From here you can see the heart of Disneyland, it's the Plaza, gateway to the themed.........." Next is a card from the early '90's. With a crane back in what will become Toontown and scaffolding up on 'it's a small world', I think its late 1990. It looks like they're building what will become the "Backstage with Baloo dressing room" attraction from Disney's Afternoon Ave - Live" for spring 1991.

More EuroDisneyland Main Street, 1994

Here are some more pics from Main Street at Euro Disneyland (Name change was just happening).
Here is the Liberty Court (west side)
And the east side (Discovery Side)

And here is Main Street Motors. This was a cute little shop specializing in auto memorabilia. I don't know what it has now.

Pirates Extended Queue 1987

For my friends over at Mice Chat, here is the only shot I have of the Pirates extended queue. Disney was constructing the new overpass/entrance at the time.
In this closeup, you can see supports for a balcony right in the center of the pic. In the back, I believe is two drinking fountains (remember those).

Another Disneyland

When I graduated from college, my parents gave me a trip to Paris (as a art student, there was no place else I wanted to go to). So in 1994 I got to go to Paris. And since I was a Disney geek I wanted to see the newest of the Magical Kingdoms. Here are a couple of shots from Main Street (before those UGLY lamp poles were put in). Everything was still new. I hope all six of my readers enjoy :-P
