Theme Park Thursdays: Long Ago DISNEYLAND Hotel Amenities

In the early days, DISNEYLAND would be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays during the off-season. Even when the park was open, it would often close at 6PM. As a result, the DISNEYLAND Hotel would find it difficult to fill rooms when DISNEYLAND Park was closed. Hotel operator Jack Wrather decided to bulk up his hotel’s amenities to make it a destination in itself.
So the DISNEYLAND Hotel had its own golf course…
 
And its own miniature golf course…
 
Plus a helicopter service offering round trips to locations throughout the Southland…
 
There would be scenic marinas…
 
And dancing waters…
 
Did you drive your car to the Magic Kingdom? Why not fill up conveniently on the premises?
 
As the resort expanded, the extensive on premises amenities were no longer seen as being necessary. With a new theme park and entertainment district, there was much more to do outside the hotel.
