Post # 100!!!! YAY!!!!!

YAY!!!! I finally made it. The big 100! So I thought I'll give you a treat. This Pic was taken 20 years ago to the day. A Tomorrowland in a new birth. Below you see a Que building up for a brand new Star Tours (well, in its second year). Remember when the line was that long? Also you see a PeopleMover in transition too. One of the old color trains is pulling into the Star Tours building while the rest in this shot are of the new colors. In the Plaza, you can see the Jukebox center stage for Blast To The Past. Enjoy!!!!! Edit: I just noticed something else in the pic. Below the Peoplemover beam and just behind the tree in the forground is a America Sings cast member in their red, white and blue costume.

After Pacific Southwest Airlines

Following the merger of PSA and America West Airlines in 1988, Disneyland was left without a sponser for World Premier CircleVision. Well Walt Disney World had Delta Airlines, so can Disneyland. Below is a couple of pics from the opening weekend (No, I was there by chance). The first pic is of a package price guide celebrating the opening of the attraction on April 3rd, 1989.
This pic is from April 2nd, 1989. The attraction opened the next day. Note that the marque has changed from the PSA purple colors to Delta's blues. In a few years this marque will be replaced with the attraction's final one.

Here is a view of the waiting area with the Delta action wall.

1986 Subs

Today we have the Submarine Voyage. In the Mid 80's, Disneyland decided to give their subs a less military, more explorer look. So off came the military gray and the first of the new color schemes. This version had a yellow, white and blue look (some with light peachy color accents). Later in the 80's the subs were painted a yellow/orange combination. So here is a look at them from the Skyway. Enjoy!

The AT&T Pavilion 1967

A VERY special treat for you today. I came across some Xeroxed copies of some pics I had done on a research project at the Disney archives in the late 80's. Here are two pics of the Character Phone area of the Pavilion. These pics are of a private party in November 1967.
A great shot of the Character Phones.
