    The Skyway

    The Skyway

    Once upon a time, Disneyland guests could travel from one end of the park to the other by air. For 38 years, the Von Roll 101 Skyway provided aerial transportation from Fantasyland to Tomorrowland and vice versa. It was a scenic and mildly thrilling experience that has left a visible mark on Disneyland’s history.

Emperor Severian ,

Vintage Disneyland

This is a truly superior Disneyland history podcast. The host does everything right. Working from a prepared presentation, she stays on topic and keeps her shows conveniently short but informative. Her research is quite good. Especially nice is her appropriate and judicious use of sound and music clips to aurally illustrate her points. The only drawback? Not enough episodes.
