It’s amazing to see how much Disneyland has grown, both in density and by expanding outward beyond the railway (not to mention California Adventure, most of which isn’t shown in the picture).  The railway itself has changed over the years, especially so for the new (and positively ginormous) Star Wars land, adopting a more sinuous route around the shortened river…

(It’s also fun to see how much has changed around the park — from groves to hotels and houses!)
