1978 Details

Comparison of 1976 Map and 1978 Map of Main Street

The copyright date is found to the left of the Disneyland title in banner at the bottom of the map.


Advertising the coming of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. The emblem is located in the lower left corner.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Although Big Thunder Mountain Railroad won't open until the next year, the 1978 map includes what the attraction will look like. This is likely because the previous attraction in this location, Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland, had already closed and had been demolished.
