First Addendum is Finished!

The first addendum to the book Disneyland Hotel: The Early Years 1954-1988 is finished and at the printer. Please check the website for details on release date. It came out even better than I thought. The addendums will essentially be a complete rewrite of the book. These will contain new (old) photos, text and details not contained within the original book as well as the original photos we did have in the book. This will fill in many of the gaps we had while writing the book and will enable the enlargement of many of the pictures we had to reduce due to size constraints and time limitations, not to mention the new photos included we have since received. Each addendum will cover select sections of the book and go into much further detail on events and happenings. I am very happy with how this first edition came out. A limited number of copies will be available very soon. Again, please check the website for further details.

Plaza Building at the Disneyland Hotel

At the request of several viewers of this blog, I have posted some new Plaza Building pictures below. Thanks for your input and I hope you like these pictures.

Check-In Magazine - In the late 60's, the Disneyland Hotel magazine Check-In featured a story on shopping at the Plaza Building.

Here is a close-up showing a partial tennants list at the Plaza Building at the Disneyland Hotel. Does anybody remember any of these?

Back to Posting

My son asked me to start posting again. I have a bunch of new goodies to share and will be posting tonight. Some great overhead shots I had never seen before.

1966 Overhead - Construction of the Anaheim Convention Center. This pic also shows the Disneyland South Gate/Katella Gate.

1960's Overhead - A very full Disneyland parking lot in this early 60's overhead. The Hotel is in the left center.
