1963 Overheads

Here are some 1963 overheads....some with "Hotel Disneyland" at the top of the building and some with it not yet installed. I am trying to pin down the exact date in which this project was finished. I do know a permit was issued by the city of Anaheim to install a sign at the top of the Tower building at the Disneyland Hotel in late August of 1963.

Yes it is Walt Disney at the Disneyland Hotel!

1956 Still Images From Film Footage

I found another film from the Disneyland Hotel's past. These are from Wrather family home movies and date back to 1956. I am guessing May or June, 1956 as they are still working on construction and there is not a lot of landscaping. The pool had just opened.
