Panoramic Views of Disneyland

From four different time periods and different photographers come these panoramic views of Disneyland. Instead of focusing on one specific ride, attraction or person, the photographer shot a wide scene. The first photo has a date of February 1965 shows the Fantasyland Theater area from the Skyway.

The second photo with the date of September 1968 is a ground level view showing the Fantasyland ticket booth and more.

The third photo is dated Xmas 1959 and shows the entrance ticket booths.

The final photograph is dated August 1967 and shows the rare view of the Monsanto Home of the Future and the New Tomorrowland of 1967 being open at the same time.

Ticket booths and HOTF with the '67 Tomorrowland, WOW! THANKS! They should have kept the HOTF, it fits in with the '67 Tomorrowland style!

Hey VDT: I was thinking exactly the same thing about HOTF and Tomorroland 67. The problem was not a clash of styles (they're actually pretty close), I think it was a problem with perceived age.

HOTF had been open for many many years, had not changed, and realistically we were no closer to living in plastic mushroom houses than before. It might have survivied if it was in a back corner of the park, but being at the hub and at the entrance to the brand new Tomorrowland, I think, seemed like a clash.

I love those last two. The sky is always so much more interesting in the winter, look at those clouds!

And I do like to see the House of the Future during its final year in front of T-Land.

Why didn't they leave the HOF along. Even today, just the shell of the house would have made a great vistors center or Disney Gallery.
