Disneyland Marquee

For decades travelers along Harbor Blvd. in Anaheim were greeted by the marquee for the "Happiest Place on Earth," Disneyland. Even after a change to a larger, "more improved" sign in the late '80's, guests were treated to a hearty welcome as they entered the parking lot. After all, who could miss this grand Disneyland sign?

Well those days have come and gone. On Tuesday, June 15th, the end came as a crane was brought over and workers removed the huge Disneyland sign. Was the sign removed to comply with recent city legislation against the signage of yesteryear? Or is Disney just planning to create a new entrance for its Disneyland/California Adventure theme parks? Either way, the old familiar sign off Harbor Blvd. is now a part of our past.

UPDATE 04/02 : The old marquee was auctioned off in December 2001 for a sum greater than $25k. The marquee and a sign from the old Tomorrow Land were some of the first pieces featured on Disney's eBay auction page. Many thanks to Jordin Lee Peters for update on the fate of Disneyland marquee. 04-02
