I'm a Disney fanatic. I first went to Disneyland in 1955. I have returned at least once a year every year since. I have stayed in the Disneyland Hotel and the Grand Californian multiple times I have seen the changes to the parks and resorts.

On August 2, 2013, my CabanaQueen and I spent the whole day poolside at the Disneyland Hotel in Cabana #3. It was our 34th wedding anniversary. I would like to thank everyone DL guests, MW's, and CM's alike who wished us happy anniversary.
What's happening for the 35th?  Happy anniversary!  It's a pretty special one! - MeridaFanHasNoAP  3247.4 #27 9:16AM

#TBT On this day July 31, 1955, the attraction known as Casey Jones Junior was reopened. It opened on the 17th with the rest of the attractions but had some difficulty making the grade. I think I can wasn't enough. Some say it almost flipped over backwards. But it was worked on fixed.

#FBF When it comes dining in the parks I miss the Carnation Plaza. In early 70's they had shrimp and Welch's grape juice bars. The little ice cream place had root beer floats. I miss the the Bell X1. Why do they still have the Saturn Five engine?

#throwback I remember walking by the Haunted Mansion the building was there. It was beautiful. Kind of up on the hill almost. I remember the sign saying that they wanted 999 ghosts to move in. This was in 1966, the last time I went to Disneyland with both parents. But on this day New Orleans Sq. buildings and the like opened.

One of the most fun ride was added in 1989, Splash Mountain. It's opening was perfect for a hot day in July. My family loves this ride. What is my family's favorite? Sure have trimmed the bushes.

Happy anniversary! I have had the good fortune to have visited Disneyland every year since that 1955 opening. Here are some pictures of two of the milestone years. the 25th and the 50th. To me Disney is reality and everything else in the world's fantasy.
Every year! That's awesome! - JenGwen323  1098.3 #128 8:07AM

July 13, 1957, they installed the petrified tree stump in Frontierland near the Rivers of America. Walt had bought it for his wife, Lillian, the year before at the Pikes Petrified Forest in Colorado. She said, "It won't fit on the mantle, let's put it in the park."
Lillian was shrewd. Walt gives her big rock, so not to rock Walt's boat, one can hear it go done "it's wonderful dear. Now where can we put it? How about your neat park where everyone can enjoy it?! Walt: great idea Hunny." Whew rock gone😂👍 - Plumiegirl  7728.5 #3 11:03PM

#Flashback Friday In 1997, Toontown had a little park with Toontown looking items. CC was playing on one of them, she slipped and fell and scraped up her nose. As I held her, AJ has to try it out. You can see her poor little nose while she is being hugged by Goofy in Frontierland.
Ouch poor baby 😔 I remember this my oldest played here and he is almost 19 now!! 😱 - CinderellE-79  895.0 #162 1:22PM

#TBT I miss the days of the center geyser. If you were hit by that, you were definitely soaked.
They don't do that anymore?  Nothing woke you up like that geyser going down your back!  :-). (PS - Nice collage!) - redsoxcarlos  932.8 #156 6:50PM
I was always leave my stuff in the locker there i don't want to get everything wet from that geiser!   I hope it comes back, I tell everyone about it and they don't believe me!😁 - secretagentangel  1235.3 #101 8:03PM
I was hoping they just turned it off for winter. so, it's for sure gone now?😩 - OhanaPhoto  3073.7 #31 8:07PM
I was there last week and no what we call the swamping geyser.  - Midasgold  559.2 #301 9:07PM

On July 4, 1976 as a Californian I figured the best place to celebrate on the West Coast was at Disneyland. It was incredible. The energy of crowd, and it was a big crowd, was electric. I've been to the 4th before and since. But this one was the best.
That would have been an exciting time, with the Bicentennial! - Thumper13  352.7 #569 8:44AM

When the New Tomorrowland open in July 1967, I had just graduated from high school. I brought my little brother and I to Disneyland for the first visit without parental units. With the new Peoplemover and the Carousel of Progress, we knew we were seeing the future. We also went to the All-Star game at the Big A.

Nice pics!  I sat next to you at magic map show this past may and we traded stories of the good old days. I showed you an old ticket book I had from 1971.  Good to see you here and I'll say hi when I'm there in early sept. I graduated in 67 also! - disneybob49  28.6 #5295 6:32PM
