On June 17, 1958 the local Los Angeles area newspapers ran this Disneyland ad.
“WEIGH ANCHOR, COLUMBIA”
With that cry you begin an exhilarating adventure aboard this three-masted fully rigged 1790 sailing ship as you cruise Frontierland’s Rivers of America. Your cannons “BOOM!” at Fort Wilderness and at hostile Indian Villages along the rugged shore. Stand before the mast on this full sized replica of the first American vessel to circle the world.
ALICE IN WONDERLAND
Join Alice in the wonderful, whimsical adventures that beckon inside the Rabbit Hole. Meet all the astounding characters… the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, even the Oversized Chamber and the Upside Down Room… it’s all here to delight and thrill you in this outstanding NEW attraction.
RIDE THE RIM OF FABULOUS GRAND CANYON
The breathtaking beauty of the Grand Canyon in vivid realism in a majestic 306 foot long diorama. Enjoy this spectacle aboard the Santa Fe and Disneyland trains, including the new Fred Gurley Excursion Special.
Fantasy in the Sky
A glorious aerial fireworks display high over Disneyland every evening at 9 O’clock.
MOONLIGHT IN DISNYLAND
Cruise down the rivers of the world on the wonderful old Mark Twain, a real Mississippi River Boat… glide through Indian country past Fort Wilderness… or take a romantic stroll down Main Street, USA to Fantasyland and Sleeping Beauty Castle… Wherever you turn – Disneyland at night glows as the most exciting place on earth.
NOTE: They made a small mistake here: The Mark Twain is on the Rivers of America. The Jungle Cruise is on the Rivers of the World.
Dancing every nite!
Dancing in the Parasol topped Plaza Gardens, the modern Space Bar in Tomorrowland; the Pavilion or the Golden Horseshoe. Something different every evening… Monday – Personality Nite, Tuesday – Fun with the Band, Wednesday – Square Dance Nite, Thursday – Polka Nite, Friday and Saturday – Date Nite, Sunday – Concert in the Park.
