Donald Duck Birthday Parade 1984

Here is a shot of the 1984 Donald Duck 50th Birthday Parade. I think some of these parade units were recyled for Disneyland's 30th a year later.

The Lunching Pad 1989

Since they are now doing work on the old Radio Disney shack to the new Hatmosphere, I thought I'd show this image of what it looked like in '89. This was the begining of the color change of Tomorrowland from the earth tones of oranges of the '70's and '80's to the lavenders and deep purples of the early '90's. Note the planters in front of the Lunching Pad, these were removed in the early '90's.

Christmas in August

Here is a little x-mas in August for you. This pic of the castle was way before the current color scheme, it's the original. The ivy on the castle walls, the x-mas trees in the moat! Things that you don't see at todays x-mas cellebrations.

Motor Boat Cruise to Gummy Glen

Here is a pic of the Motor Boat Cruise in it's final season as part of the Disney Afternoon Live! To be honest I miss the Motor Boat Cruise. I was a nice trip thru the trees, a great in-between attraction.

Tomorrowland from Skyway 1989

Another look at Tomorrowland before all the lavender paint took over. The activity of the land is amazing and it makes you excited to be there.

Tahitain Terrace 1990

I still think that this was the best resturant in disneyland. The food was great and the show was entertaining. There were always a full show, unlike the other place that took over........
