Live Comedy Performance Celebrating The Original Magic Kingdom In The 1950s & 60s
D23 EXPO Stage 28 at Anaheim Convention Center
With his spectacular collection of “found” mid-century era Kodachrome images, unbridled enthusiasm, and keen eye for detail, Ambassador of Americana, Charles Phoenix takes you back in time to the granddaddy of all theme parks when it was new.
Experience the early days of Main Street, U.S.A., Adventureland, Fantasyland, Frontierland, and Tomorrowland. See long-gone attractions, including the Phantom Boats, Flying Saucers, Indian Village, Rainbow Mountain Stage Coaches, PeopleMover, Carousel of Progress, and more.
Enjoy the amazing vintage images of the original Tomorrowland when it was promoted as “The World of 1986,” and as well as the new Tomorrowland in 1967.
Charles also shares the flaming backstory of the Monorail, takes you inside the ultra space-age, all-plastic Monsanto House of the Future, and flies you to the moon in the legendary TWA Rocket to the Moon.
In addition to all the Disneyland delights, tour Freedomland USA—the ill-fated Disneyland-wannabe theme park that opened in New York City in 1960, plus over-the-top Disneyland area themed-motels, and more.
