For the past 20 years, an empty building has sat undisturbed, perched above Fantasyland. Many younger Disneyland guests have probably passed by without a second glance, but for those who have noticed the forgotten Swiss Chalet, they may have wondered what in the world it was for.

In Tomorrowland, on the edge of the carousel theatre that once housed America Sings & The Carousel of Progress is a strange stairway connected to the forgotten peoplemover track. It leads to a few doorways, but one large landing on the stairway seems to jut out against the edge of nowhere. This stairway to nowhere once led to the loading platform of one of Disneyland fans’ favorite forgotten attractions, The Skyway.
Billed separately as Skyway to Fantasyland and Skyway to Tomorrowland, the Disneyland Skyway(s) operated from 1956 to 1994. A futuristic transportation technology in their day, they soon became a common sight in theme parks and other public attractions before disappearing from their original Southern California home forever.
In this Random installment, we see what’s left of the forgotten skyway…..
THANK YOU for watching! Lots more adventures in and out of Disneyland on this channel!
