Aerial Disneyland

The superb Disneypark fan mag The E-Ticket periodically runs a neat feature called Wings over Disneyland that shows the park from not only high in the air but from different angles and periods of time as well. Here's three incredible shots that demonstrate this feature eloquently. As always you can double click on these images to make them larger, or you can download them as a psd and make 'em huge... providing a facinating overview of the world's greatest theme park as it has changed over the years.

This first shot looks down on almost the entirety of the Alweg Monorail track in Fantasyland circa 1959.

View #2 shows almost all of the park in this spectacular view from 1964.

The third and final view from Christmas-time in 1978, shows the park undergoing big changes including the construction of the recently-troubled Thunder Mountain rollercoaster ride.

Kudos to Leon and Jack Janzen for their years editing this always insightful and often mind-blowing magazine. My continued thanks and respect, and keep up the good work!
More cool stuff comin'...

Cool and spooky view from '64. Let us all pray that the newly opened 'Pirates' update hasn't killed the cow, Jack.

So, so cool. I grew up in southern California, and I'd love to know which five rides in the last photo have been removed, because I'd remember them. I don't have anything to add, just wanted to say thanks.
