Thanks for downloading WEDWay Radio, a show about Disney Parks, Disney History and touring.  This is episode 115: Date Night at Disneyland

On this episode we celebrate a tradition that Disneyland began in the late 1950's that centered around the Carnation Plaza Gardens.  This show is both a history of both the Carnation Plaza Gardens and a history of the live music that occupied the area.

The area is was first home to the Disneyland bandstand after it was forced to move as it obstructed the view of the Sleeping Beauty Castle from the hub.  It was so popular that a large outdoor dance hall was built in 1956, which stood there untl May of 2012 where it will be replaced by the Princess Fantasy Fair. 

Enjoy this show!
