At Disneyland, I remember when....
 
admission price was only $28.75. Compared to today's price, $28.75 is pocket change. And yes, I know Disneyland has more now than it did 20+ years ago. :rolleyes: So, what do you remember at Disneyland that is no longer?

Our first stay at the Grand Californian Hotel we got the room for just over $200 a night. Same room this year was $504.
And this year was with an AP disc.

No shame, but I remember Rocket Rods when they were functional.. :D (ahaha, I must be the only one that misses that ride despite its many issues.) and I remember the People Mover.

Now this is where it remains fuzzy, was the Astro Orbiter on top of a building at one point in time and then moved to ground level? I could have sworn it was, but maybe I am getting MK mixed up. lol

I remember the buckets that used to pass through Matterhorn Mountain. Barely, but I do remember them! :cool1:

I remember the little ticket books too. I remember The Country Bear Jamboree. I remember the People Movers and The Gondolas very distantly. I can remember the Subs the way they were, with the mermaids and all the treasure, as well as Davy Jones. I can remember the tree house when it belonged to the Swiss family. I like how my Mom remembers boarding their poodle Johnette at the Kennel. She would always leave the kennel with a can of "Kennel Ration" dog food!

I remember riding the gondolas (don't remember the actual name) with my parents in either 1974 or 1976. The ride stopped while our car was in the middle of the Matterhorn. It was a half hour before it started up again. None of us were worried in the least. We watched the bobsleds go by, and chatted away the time.

I remember being a little girl and being anxious to ride the Rocket Rods. That ride was a favorite for me and my family.

I also remember seeing swans in the Sleeping Beauty Castle moat during the day and at night. They were beautiful.

Yes you are correct about Astro Orbiter. We also enjoyed Rocket Rods, once while we were eating lunch, they broke down again and the CM were walking everyone off the ride. One CM was walking backwards down the long stretch in tomorrow land (no railings) holding a woman's hands (we could see she was scared) as soon as they reached the loading area, she FAINTED! We saw suites coming from all directions, someone must have been watching on a TV screen.

I first visited...the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship in Fantasyland, the Matterhorn and the Skyway Buckets.

It Wasn't to long ago but I loved the year of a million dreams. That was such a fun time, never knew what you could get at any moment ! I still have all the goodies I got. I wish they would do that again.

I loved those.

I remember those, America Sings (it made me throw up), Mission to Mars, Country Bear Jamboree, when the Tinkerbell Toy Shop had actual toys including Effanbee dolls I used to buy.

I remember actually being able to get ice cream at Carnation Plaza!

I also remember the old Swiss Family Treehouse, the Old Mine Train (pre-Big Thunder) and the molecule ride (I remember the ride, but can't remember the name of it! :rolleyes:
