Disneyland Today - February 24 & 25, 1996

It’s Disneyland Today! From February 24 & 25, 1996. Who can forget the amazing Toy Story Funhouse (link).

Small print anyone?

All of a sudden fourteen years ago seems like a long time. Captain EO was still open but the map only shows the “Magic Eye Theater”? Maybe they knew he was going to leave soon, I bet they didn’t think he would come back fourteen years later!

What was “film” and how did it work?

It is strange that Captain EO isn't listed, since it wouldn't close for another two years. Perhaps it was temporarily down for maintenance?

Brings back memories of taking my older kids when they were still youngsters... The old Tomorrowland was still there, just mostly shut down (PeopleMover, America Sings, Mission To Mars).

No mention of the Internet in the brochure, if you wanted to make reservations at the Disneyland Hotel you had to phone them!

Oh BTW, that 'Film' worked purty good back in the day. Used to be easy to keep up on my albums when all I had to do was take in the roll and see what I got. Now I take too many pics, then have to crop and fix color and such...and so I'm a year and a half behind!

Oh well, that's "Progress" I suppose ;)

Thanks for all your great posts.

I have sooooo many boxes of Disneyland Todays from the late 1990s. Which will be given back to me from storage when I return.

Major: Captain EO actually closed in April 1996. But the attraction was Magic Eye Theater, and the film was Captain EO. It does seem strange that they didn't at least list Captain EO, but this style brochure always seemed to skimp on the information. For instance, this is around the time they ceased providing information on what types of food each restaurant had.
