Sorry, not a theme park, but a resort. Anyone remember this?




Now you know what the big turn-around and loading area right outside the International Gateway used to be used for!

Wow, you mean there used to be a tram from BW to the International Gateway?
What years?

The photo was taken September 1996, soon after the Boardwalk Inn & Villas opened. When we visited again in December 1997 it was gone. It ran all the way to the Swolfin. The day my photo was taken, the tram manufacturer was doing a photo shoot. Somewhere there is a sales brochure with a photo of me riding my wheelchair up the ramp into the accessible section at the back. Fame!

I suspect the boardwalk itself (ie the timber boarded walkway) was in place and operational before the Boardwalk (the hotel) opened. I am sure I heard somewhere that the tram was considered a danger because there was a danger of children falling under the wheels.

More recently I took a Disney cruise and noticed an identical tram running from the boat dock out to one of the beaches. I have often wondered if this is the same tram.

That tram used to be pink & teal (Swalphin colours) prior to the Boardwalk opening. I remember riding it in 1993 when we stayed at the Dolphin for a convention. It looks hideous with all that Boardwalk advertising on it. I miss that tram, though.

This is from a parade in the mid 70's, I think.

I remembering going when I was 13 so probably in 1985-86. I will have to ask my mom if she has any photo's. My dad took us all to our first out of state vacation. I remember staying in Kissiimee and staying at daytona beach. Then heading over to magic kingdom and sea world. We had a blast...Vacation of a lifetime when I was a kid..

Oh my Gosh!! I have that same sweatshirt that we bought the first time we went to Disneyland!!! It is one of the few things my mom saved and now my DD wears it.

I wonder if we were there at the same time...
