DISNEYLAND MARQUEE

July 17th 1985
Out with the old and in with the new
As Wally would say "From the Canadian Side"This Info on the Marquee was found over at
www.laughingplace.com/files/sign
On Monday, June 14th, 1999 a piece of Disneyland history cam e down. The Disneyland sign and marquee on Harbor Blvd. that has stood in one form or another since Disneyland opened in 1955 was brought to the ground. By Wednesday it should be all cleared away.

This was only the second sign to greet guests as they entered Disneyland in the park's 44 year history. The original marquee, erected in 1958, had letters that had to be changed by hand. This sign was updated in the mid-60s and removed completely on October 2nd and 3rd, 1989. The current computer controlled marquee has stood since then welcoming guests to Disneyland in a number of languages and letting them know the park's hours, entertainment and special events.

Disneyland has not yet announced what the replacement sign will look like or where it will be located. Below are some pictures of the sign intact and how it looked on Monday.
