Disneyland Decades: Part II - 180 Photos of Disneyland in the 1960s

By Keith Mahne




Disneyland and Walt Disney were quite busy in the 1960s. This was, without a doubt, THE place to be. The sixties brought in a new land within the Park, New Orleans Square, with two spectacular attractions, The Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean. It was also the decade that added Mr. Lincoln, Primeval World, The Flying Saucers, The Tiki Room, Carousel of Progress and the PeopleMover. Join us today as we continue our Disneyland Decades series with a magical, 180 photo tour of Disneyland in the 1960s. Wait until you see this...
