Bonus Sunday Returns!

Welcome back to Bonus Sunday!  Time for a Vacationland to get things moving again.  From the Fall of 1974 and Winter of 1975 this is a fine edition of Disneyland Vacationland.  The highlights are shown in this post but you can download the entire issue here:




Wow, I remember when the front of the island looked like this, I miss it.



The Haunted Mansion was a most "Chilling Challenge" after being open for just five short years.







Those cookies look yummy!



In case you didn't know, Southern California has a few other attractions, most of which get a mention in this issue.  Big news on the blog regarding Magic Mountain! Stay tuned in this coming week as we examine some pre-opening slides from 1968 versus the park today (well, last week). And on a side note regarding the Mountain, if you're a Log Jammer fan, well, may it RIP....

I never visited this place, looks fun. Were are the Fuji Folks?


Licorice Pizza artwork alert!

If only we could travel back in time to this era! Hey, someone reversed that photo of the Hitchhiking Ghosts. They should be "hitching" the other direction. I still think Phineas looks better with eyeballs instead of the empty sockets he has today. I would like to know when it was that they removed them and why!
