|Opening June 16, 1957 and covering approximately 9 acres, Holidayland was a grassy picnic ground located along the western edge of Disneyland, near the area that is now New Orleans Square. Often referred to as the "lost" land of Disneyland, Holidayland had its own admission gate into Disneyland and could accomodate up to 7,000 guests, for large events. It also had playgrounds, horseshoes, baseball field, volleyball, "the world's largest candy-striped circus tent" and other activities. It also had food and concession stands, which included the sale of beer.
Due to its lack of shade, nighttime lighting, restrooms, and alleged lack of Disney "flavor", Holidayland closed in 1961. According to Milt Albright, Holidayland's manager, "It wasn't any one thing that killed Holidayland. It was just the combined effect of a whole lot of things."
Today, Holidayland is a parking lot for employees. The Haunted Mansion stands where the circus tent used to be and Pirates of the Caribbean takes up the baseball field. (source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
