Watch what you wish for. Grad Nite '77. Space Mountain had just opened. We waited 3 hours in line then the ride broke down. We had to start walking back to the bus as the sun was coming up.Just saw a few old extended family pictures from Disneyland in the 70s and wish I could have experienced old Disneyland. But then again I kind of did. I feel like Disneyland in the late 80s/early 90s had more in common with Disneyland of the 60s then today does with Disneyland of the 80s.
Seriously, I do miss People Mover, Skull Rock, Carousel of Progress, Trams, Country Bear Jamboree, lower crowds in the off season.
Mid 80's I loved taking my girlfriend to dance to the swing band on many Saturday nights.
Question: I seems like I got some really good price for after 6PM (mid 80's) for the swing band. Does anyone remember the deal?
Found this on Micechat Yesterland. It looks like $40 for every summer night after 5pm all summer long. I was/am cheap, so that sounds like my price range for many nights of dancing. I don't remember the bands being so famous. I had some of Tex Beneke and Artie Shaw's albums. I'd think I'd remember dancing to those bands.
