1965 Overhead

These wonderful photographs are from my friends at Vintage Disneyland Tickets blog. They detail Disneyland and the surrounding area from 1965. Construction has begun on the Tower addition of the Disneyland Hotel which necessitated the need for a new parking lot for the construction workers. This is a great set of photos and shows the locations for many exciting features at the Disneyland Hotel including the golf facilities, heliport and other exciting locations.

Beatiful detailed shot of Disneyland and the surrounding area. The Disneyland Hotel is on the lower left.

The entire 60 acres of Disneyland Hotel property

1965 Overhead Golf Facilities - Driving range & mini-golf

1965 Overhead Mini-Golf Course - The famous mini-golf course with the holes themed after Disneyland attractions. The building to the left served as the store for golf equipment sales and rentals for the mini golf course and driving range.
