Live Comedy Performance Celebrating the Original Magic Kingdom in the 1950s & 60s

AMC Theaters, Downtown Disney
Anaheim, CA

With his spectacular collection of “found” mid-century era Kodachrome images, unbridled enthusiasm, and keen eye for delightful 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 USA, Adventureland, Fantasyland, Frontierland, and Tomorrowland. See long-gone attractions, including the Phantom Boats, Flying Saucers, Indian Village, Rainbow Mountain Stage Coaches, People Mover, Carousel of Progress, and more.

Enjoy amazing vintage images of the original Tomorrowland when it was promoted as “The World of 1986,” and the all-new Tomorrowland of 1967.

Charles also shares the flaming backstory of the Monorail, takes you inside the ultra outer space-age, all-plastic Monsanto House of the Future, and flies you to the moon in the legendary TWA Rocket to the Moon.

Also enjoy an unexpected side tour of 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.
