Charles Phoenix’s Retro Disneyland Slide Show

Pop-culture and nostalgia enthusiast Charles Phoenix comes to Orange County this weekend to celebrate the 55th anniversary of Disneyland’s grand opening. With his Retro Disneyland Slide Show , you can marvel at such bygone wonders as the Indian Village, Phantom Boats and the Carousel of Progress. Plus, see Main Street when it was brand-new and what Tomorrowland was like when it was hyped as “The World of 1987” (still no flying cars . . .). It’s been a long, ever-evolving road for Disneyland, and there’s no one better than the Cherpumple-making Master of Kitsch to remind us how far we’ve really come. You'll enjoy seeing vintage images of the original Tomorrowland when it was promoted as ‘The World of 1987.’ Also check out the all-new Tomorrowland of 1967. Charles also shares the flaming back story of the monorail and takes you inside the ultra space-age House of the Future. Audiences will get to tour Freedomland USA, the ill-fated Disneyland wannabe theme park that opened in the New York City in 1960, and much, much more! Your imagination will be inspired and your spirit will soar!
