Disneyland 1957 (part 2), and El Toro

Today I'm posting two more video clips of Disneyland in the summer of 1957. (See my May 7th post for others and background info.) The first shows Fantasyland, and the second is a tour of an amazingly primitive Jungle Cruise.
Heritage Hill Historical Park in El Toro will host the annual Rancho Days Fiesta on Saturday. It includes living history depictions, exhibits, entertainment and children’s crafts.
CSUF’s Center for Oral & Public History continues to document the history of the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station by collecting oral histories. They are currently concentrating on the WWII and Korean War eras. If you have memories of MCAS El Toro (as a civilian or as military) and would like to participate, call (714) 278-8415, or email
