Disneyland parking lot.

A quick follow-up to the previous article… I found a few more parking lot related photos I took in 1997. Here’s one showing the layout of the parking lot — a very helpful map for those who can’t remember where they parked:

The Disneyland Tram runs approximately every 15 minutes?!? It would be faster to walk 🙂

I also found a higher resolution photo of the old parking lot walkway. You would park, then walk to this walkway, and head towards the entrance.

At 640×480 resolutions, you can almost make out the details of the Disneyland Train Station. Almost.

I also found a somewhat blurry view from the monorail that shows where this walkway is in relation to the park entrance. This was from the far end monorail which now runs through the entrance (over the bridge) at Disney California Adventure.

Above, you can see one of the old yellow trams (left), and the walkway (right side). Today, you’d be looking at Buena Vista Street at DCA!

Another image I wanted to share from 1996 was too small, so here’s a slightly less small version of it — the guest information booth with clocks showing the time at every Disney resort around the globe!

You can see the time at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Tokyo Disneyland and Euro Disney! (Euro Disney, you ask? Geez, you are young. That’s what Disneyland Paris was called from 1992 to 2002. I guess Disney’s California Adventure and Disney/MGM Studios were not the first parks to get a name change.)

And, lastly… This image:

I have no recollection what the purpose of that sign was, but something about it must have caught my attention.

Until next time…
