Yesterland.com was started back in 1995 by a gentleman named Werner Weiss. As Werner describes on his website, he had a bunch of old color slides of Disneyland from the 1960s and 1970s of attractions that were no longer there. Werner had the slides digitized and wrote about the attractions as if they had been moved to a park called Yesterland. This site became a huge hit as it was one of the very first dedicated to Disneyland. It actually came online prior to the official Disneyland site!
Over the past 15 years, Werner has posted hundreds of "photo essays" all about the history of both current and extinct attractions. Since Yesterlands beginnings, he has expanded his articles to include Walt Disney World, Disneyland Paris, Disney Vacation Club and Disney Imagineering. As I am first and foremost a fan of the Florida property, I find the Walt Disney World writings to be the most interesting. I have learned a great deal from browsing this site and it is obvious that Werner enjoys taking us down memory lane.
Although my primary interest lies in the sections about Walt Disney World, Yesterland.com focuses a great deal on the evolution of Disneyland. I have very little knowledge of Disneyland's past and I find these articles to be quite enlightening. I'm sure that anyone who has spent any time in the California parks will really enjoy the articles and photographs related to Walt's original creation in Anaheim. Whether you are a fan of Disneyland or Walt Disney World, I can't recommend Yesterland.com enough. It is truly a site that should be saved in the bookmarks of all Disney park enthusiasts!
Have a Disneyriffic day and remember to keep moving forward. See ya real soon!
