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.
