Dis Unplugged Podcast-Disneyland Hotel History-Part 2


Here is a link to my interview on Disneyland Hotel history. I really liked Michael Bowling and Tom Bell who ran this interview. Both are first class in my book.


Our books will now be available at Disneyland in the Small World Sundries Shop at the Disneyland Hotel. Please ask about them and better yet, go in and get your copies. We sure would appreciate it.

1960 Disneylander Employee Newsletter

Several years ago, I purchased a stack of old Disneylander booklets/magazines on Ebay. Disneylander was the employee/cast member which I am told, Disneyland Hotel employees also had access to. This January, 1960 edition was interesting and I thought I would share with you because it has a story on Walt Disney which I admittedly know almost nothing about. The subject is the VIII Winter Olympic Games held in Squaw Valley, California from February 18-28. Looks like Walt Disney was quite involved in the planning and organizing of the festivities that went along with this.

1999 Near The End Of The Original Disneyland Hotel

Here are some shots from 1999, some just days before the buildings were removed.










In just a few short months, the original portions of the Disneyland Hotel were demolished and removed.

The saddest picture to me. The last piece is left standing. The only thing remaining from the 1955 buildings.

Random Disneyland Hotel Photos

Here are some random shots from the 50's through the 70's of the World's Most Exciting Hotel.

Sure would like to know who these people are with Bonita Granville. This photo was taken during the Hotel's Grand Opening in August of 1956.
 Painted on headboards? 
 Early 60's overhead shot which are my favorites.
1977 Bonita Tower Groundbreaking!!
 New Marina Tower, 1970.
 A Muzak photo.
