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. 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.

They still had the original voyage the first time I went as a kid - though it was definitely less popular than the updated Finding Nemo.

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!

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.

This was one of two rides (the other being Indiana Jones) that my little sister was too short for when we went as kids. We're planning a trip now and she told me how excited she was to be able to ride on Rocket Rods because she was so jealous while watching my older sister and I on it! I wasn't quite sure how to break it to her!

I looooved Rocket Rods. It was only up and running during one of my trips, and we went on it twice (once standby, once single rider). I thought it was exhilarating, especially at night! But it was broken down more often than not during that visit, seemed like.

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!

Used to be that all the rides required a ticket to ride. A tickets were the cheapest (10 cents), E tickets were the big rides (I remember them being 85 cents).



You only had a certain amount of each ticket in the books. Taught kids a little bit about making choices.
