Disneyland- July, 1986

Some more beautiful Disneyland photos sent to us by Link Dupont, a reader of the blog. These are meaningful to me because my earliest memories of Disneyland are from the early and mid 80s.

A few things I noticed in these photos: The Bank of America sign in photo 1. Today you can still see the old bank vault but the bank is no longer. I remember working at Disneyland in the late 90s and learning about all the many services the bank offered to guests. They would exchange foreign currency, cash checks, etc. People were using cash much more then than they are now. Of all the now-extinct things Main Street, U.S.A., I think a bank has more reason to be extinct than the rest. 

In photo 2 we see Sleeping Beauty and Prince Philip riding actual horses! There should be more of that.

Pinocchio and Geppetto resting on a bench is fun in photo 3. This was back when characters had far fewer rules.

Submarine Voyage is still going strong in photo 4. This sub was called "Seeker".

In photo 5 we get a beautiful look at a clean, complete Indian Village.


Thanks, Link, for the photos!
