Found this awesome full color home movie of Disneyland from 1957 on YouTube. It's very clear and not grainy like many of the older home movies and TV programs of DL. Check out the way the park was decorated for Christmas back then. It pales in comparison with what is done now. It's also interesting to see I-5 and Harbor Blvd in the background. There is an empty field across the street from Disneyland. Some retired attractions featured include the SkyWay, Keel Boats, stage coach, and Natures Wonderland Train. Who knew that Tomorrowland used to have Eames chairs? Here is the link, so enjoy this slice of history. http://youtu.be/E4FHpSkWMo0

I totally agree! Best one I think I've ever seen! - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 10:51AM
It is great video quality but they added a modern sound track. - NickDoubleyew  1083.2 #168 10:55AM
It was obviously shot with no sound and the effects were added. It's still cool. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 11:12AM

This one is great. - MeridasHair  346.5 #687 11:17PM
Amazing! I loved seeing the thing things that have stood the test of time! It makes me sad that there are so many things that I never got to experience that Disney had to offer because I wasn't around and it makes me wonder about what kinds of things I will be telling my children about some day. - tiggertwin  331.9 #736 1:44PM
especially the autopia without tracks! how fun would that be! - OhanaPhoto  5322.5 #21 1:53PM
You mean how scary that would be?! Yikes! - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 4:31PM
I still have a hard time believing that this is the place where I get to "work". - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 9:36PM
Cool video Mike. I sure wish we still had the SkyWay. Some of those teacups seemed to be spinning at a vomit inducing speed. - NickDoubleyew  1083.2 #168 10:54AM
The tea cups are always that fast to me! 😱😷 can't do it! - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 10:57AM
That video is awesome! I loved seeing the (now vintage) cars drive by on Harbor and that boat that was cruising around the ROA, looked like it could capsize at any moment. Great find. - Linzee  1188.6 #146 11:02AM
