Disneyland – 1987 to 2017

Disneyland 1987 | Walt's Apartment

A comparison of Disneyland 1987 to Disneyland 2017

Take note of a few changes:

  • In the top-left corner, there was a small hotel with a swimming pool – which is now the front entrance of the Mickey & Friends Parking Structure, as well as the expansion of the maintenance buildings, and the long stable building for the Circle D Ranch.
  • In the bottom-left corner, the re-routing of the Monorail track, primarily due to the addition of the Indiana Jones Adventure show building.
  • At center-left, notice the clearing of land an preparation for the construction of Splash Mountain.
  • At top-center, the addition of Mickey’s Toontown.

A new era…

The history and heritage of Disneyland will always be special to those who love what Walt Disney created. As a new era dawns over Disneyland, the park is being changed more than fans have ever seen in 60 years. The Star Wars Land expansion caused the demolition and removal of many historic buildings on property, bringing a promise of “the future.”

In these nearmap photos from November 2015 and September 2016, we can see the incredible changes, mostly to the backstage area.
