OUR LATEST SHOW


Show Number 154 - Tour of Disneyland in 1975


In this episode we take a tour of Disneyland in the year 1975. We learn about what attractions were there during this time, and some that weren't yet. We look at how Disneyland was slowly preparing for a big celebration the next year in 1976 for the Bi-Centennial celebration. It was an interesting year and hope you will learn something new.

​​"This is the fourth consecutive year Disneyland has hosted a 24-hour celebration. But unlike years past, visitors had a hard time for much of the time entering Disneyland.

"The theme park, unveiling a new parade and firework show, spent 12 hours at capacity, restricting access to new visitors beginning at 2:30 p.m. on Friday; guests could still go to adjacent Disney California Adventure, which also opened for 24 hours at 6 a.m. Friday.

"Disneyland's gates re-opened a little before 3 a.m. on Saturday."
