Random Pictures

Just some random pictures from the Disneyland Hotel's past. Hope you like them.

September 1955 - Disneyland had been open for about two months and the mad rush was on to finish the Disneyland Hotel. Labor and construction strikes would slow the progress as well as a shortage of skilled laborers due to their work on Disneyland

1956 Pool Shot - Another angle of the Olympic-Size swimming pool

1959 Aerial - A very busy Disneyland parking lot and Disneyland Hotel from this July 1959 overhead shot.

1970 Aerial Shot - The Marina Tower had just opened and the actual Marina too. Initial Convention Center construction can also be seen on the left middle of this picture.

The Olympic-Size Pool 1956 - The fountains (shown in previous posts) are visible in the upper right of this 1956 photograph.

1965 Picture - If you look in the lower right corner, you can see the pit has been dug for the Plaza Building dating this photo to 1965/66. You can also see the Mini-Golf Course just beyond the Hotel parking lot near the top middle of the photograph.
