Show Number  139 - Tour of Disneyland in 1974

This week we continue our series looking back at Disneyland over the years. This week is 1974, and will conclude our series for this year. Next year we look forward to visiting Disneyland in 1955, 1965, 1975, 1985, 1995, and possibly 2005. This weel though Disneyland in 1974 is an interesting time period. At this time Walt Disney had only been dead now for 7 years, and we were still almost 10 years away from the Eisner years. We take a tour of Disneyland and find out which attractions were there then and which were not yet. It is always fun to look back at these days of Disneyland and explore the history.

New Eastside Passage Replaces Backstage Route for Overflow Crowds on Main Street The new crowd overflow Eastside Passage behind Main Street is in place, with the northern (Hub or Central Plaza) entrance between the Main Street buildings and the NEW NEW NEW First Aid and Wish Lounge facilities. The old First Aid and Wish Lounge buildings, as you may recall, were of somewhat temporary construction, even though they were in use for decades.
