Disneyland After Dark
After attending Dapper Day at Disneyland a few weeks ago, I came across the Disneyland USA dvd collection at the library. The 2 disc set contains the live broadcast of opening day, a 10th Anniversary special, as well as the 1962 Disneyland After Dark television special. Any of the Disneyland specials were glorified commercials, but this had a little more style than the rest. Back in the day, Disneyland had a pretty swinging nightlife that wasn’t focused on huge shows like Fantasmic or World of Color that require sitting for 4+ hours so you get a good spot. And like nightlife outside the park, people got dressed up for an evening out. Some inspiration for the next Dapper Day.
Arrive in style on the sleek new Monorail. Next stop, Tomorrowland! Unfortunately, after the remodel 10 years ago, the station no longer looks like this, and the hotel shopping arcade behind it is now a Rainforest Cafe. Sigh.
