You’ve probably seen Tom Smith’s “Quick Hits” series that covers a variety of items that didn’t make the Disney Parks Blog. Today, I’m starting a new series of updates and highlights from the Disneyland Resort that might interest you. We’re calling it “Disneyland Resort Notes.”
Replicas of Original 1955 Attraction Vehicles – Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily released several pieces of vintage 55th merchandise on July 17, and they’re creating several replicas of attraction vehicles for attractions that debuted when Disneyland park opened in 1955. Last week we shared a photo of their new “Rocket to the Moon” replica on Twitter, and today you can take a peek at one of their upcoming replicas of Walt’s Car (shown above). You can see more of their work at artofdisneyparks.com.
