Charles phoenix: Retro Disneyland Slide SHow

Charles Phoenix: Retro Disneyland Slide Show

"Call him the King of Retro, ruling over a bygone era..." Los Angeles Times Magazine

With amazing vintage color slides, Charles Phoenix creates the ultimate "E Ticket” to the early days of the granddaddy of all theme parks. Vivid personal images taken by Disneyland tourists from the 1950s and 60s reveal the park’s remarkable history, while Phoenix’s humorous narration offers the flaming back-story of the monorail, casts a decorator’s eye upon the details of the all-plastic House of the Future, and tackles the corporate interest that fueled TWA’s Rocket to the Moon!

Through the lens of the era, you’ll experience long-gone attractions like the Phantom Boats, Flying Saucers, Indian Village and the Carousel of Progress; tour the original Main Street USA, Adventureland, Fantasyland and Frontierland; explore the first Tomorrowland (promoted as "The World of 1987"), then fast-forward to a revamped glimpse of the future-of-the past, Tomorrowland 1967.

Extra Added Attraction: See Freedomland USA, the ill-fated wannabe Disneyland theme park that opened in the Bronx, 1960!
