Next is the one with the castle on the front. It is dated 1961 and the holes are now themed to various Disneyland locations.
Finally is the blue one with the Mickey Mouse fountain on the front cover. It is dated 1964.
Finally to add some color and to show the Disneyland Hotel as it used to be is this set of four souvenir slides. Unfortunately the souvenir slides have a nasty habit of turning red and making it hard to re color so they come out looking like nostalgic photos. My favorite shot is of the Coral swim club with a person actully using one of the bamboo and paper umbrella's. A very nice souvenir.
I hope you enjoy my post on the hotel and have a happy Sunday.

This shot shows the kid at home showing off his souvenir T-shirt while riding his toy motorcycle somewhere in Orange County.
For more information on the Japanese Village Theme Park and its successor Enchanted Village as well as the current status, visit the Orange County Memories site.

The kids also posed at Sleeping Beauty Castle right in front of the Castle Arts Shop.

As an added extra bonus, Don from Magicalhotel.com sent me these images of the Mini golf course.
The blog will be silent until Wednesday. I am heading off to California and to the NFFC show and sale. If you are shopping on Sunday, stop by and say hello. I will be the one with the vintage stuff and probably wearing a Hawaiian shirt.

The second shows an interior image of one of the rooms in the tower.
The final image is of the newly remodeled Garden Room.
Makes you want to stay there for a couple of nights and get in early to Disneyland.

Here is a close up of the smaller version of the TWA Rocket. Too bad it is slightly obscured by the tree.
The next shot is of construction of one of the Hotel towers. I believe this is the Bonita tower which opened in 1961 in conjunction with the expanding of the Monorail track. The sign in front of the building is unreadable with the exception of Disneyland Hotel.
And thanks to anonymous for setting me straight, the Sierra Tower was constructed first and then the Bonita Tower came later.

The next two photos show one of the bars. Note the powder hunting horn used as a beer pull. And also check out the great 1950s modern illustration mural in the background.
Here is the other bar with even more fun 1950s illustration of an English city scene with brewers and also pubs.
