Private Tour to Disneyland in the Old Days

The Road for our Los Angeles Tour to Disneyland Might be Wider…

…but it might not be any faster.  We decided to take a look back as the new year begins but not to last year, much much earlier.  Disneyland was built on farm land back in 1955 and Harbor Boulevard, only 2-lanes wide, was the main roadway through the fields and into the park.  This might have been a photograph taken by our private tour guide on the way to the Happiest Place on Earth if we had been in business way back then.  Our guests today enjoying a custom luxury tour to the famed park see a lot more asphalt and very few fields.  The new film about Walt Disney and Mary Poppins, Saving Mr. Banks, likely had to employ a lot of CGI to get the look right for Disneyland in 1961.
