Disney Parks Then and Now

Earlier this month, I posted a marvelous photo of Walt Disney standing on the steps of the Main Street Train Station in 1955 looking out into the present. The component parts of that picture came from a amazing collection of photos that capture how Disney Parks looked early in their lives versus how they look today.

Take this snapshot of Frontierland entrance. Notice how overgrown the trees in the back have become? It’s a very different experience than what guests saw during the park’s first few years.


You can see the whole collection over on Imagineering Disney. There are photos from Disneyland, Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, and even the 1964 World’s Fair.
