OUR LATEST SHOW
Show Number 156 - History of Tomorrowland at Disneyland Part 2
In this episode we continue our History of Tomorrowland Series. In part 2 we go from the year 1967 to 1985. The Tomorrowland 1967 Refurb is probably the best Tomorrowland that we have seen in its history. it is one we enjoy talking about and you will learn more about it. There was not a whole lot of changes in Tomorrowland until 1977, when Space Mountain was added. We leave off at 1985, just on the brink of two attractions that would be added, and we will talk about those in Part 3, next time. Also we have the latest in current events at the Disneyland Resort.

Critics say Disney parks is pricing out the middle class, but the company says the magic is still for everyone
“Disney and theme-park leaders have defended their rising prices as a logical response to record-setting attendance, with Disney spokeswoman Jacquee Wahler saying the company is ‘committed to ensuring all our guests have a magical experience.’
‘We continually add new experiences, and many of our guests select multi-day tickets or annual passes, which provide great value and additional savings,’ Wahler said. ‘A day at a Disney park is unlike any other in the world.’”
Study: Disneyland Resort generates $5.7 billion of Southern California economy
“Disneyland Resort generates an estimated $5.7 billion annually in economic activity for the Southern California economy, according to an independent study commissioned by The Walt Disney Parks and Resorts division.”
“The study, conducted by Arduin, Laffer & Moore Econometrics, a Florida-based economic consulting firm, uses fiscal 2013 data on the Disneyland Resort, its visitors, employees and third party businesses. They’ve done such reports for Walt Disney World.
The last time Disney commissioned an economic impact study for Disneyland was in 2009. That study – by a different company – found the resort contributed $4.7 billion annually to the Southern California economy. A 2005 report calculated, it generated $3.6 billion.”
“Disneyland Resort is the county’s top employer, employing more than 28,000 people. It also contributes indirectly to the creation of 25,000 other jobs in Southern California, Scudder said.
Disneyland visitors spend $1.4 billion annually in food, beverage, accommodations, retail and transportation at establishments outside of the resort, the report said.
The resort also accounts for nearly a third of Orange County’s $9.6 billion tourism market and generates $370 million in state and local tax revenues.”
