Andre the Giant visits Disneyland – 1975

By Keith Mahne

As the picture states, “Disneyland has many astonishing wonders. Another wonder was added, if only for a day, as it was treated to a rare visit by Andre The Giant. It was a visit neither Disneyland nor Andre will ever forget.” Today, we’ll travel back to 1975 and visit Disneyland the day this wrestling wonder had the time of his life at the Happiest Place On Earth. We will even see a photo of Andre posing with the rarely seen Main Street Cinema ‘phantom’ somewhere in Fantasyland…a rare sight indeed! Continue after the page break and have a look as Andre The Giant has a little fun at Disneyland in 1975…

 
WHOA!!! Can you believe this used to be a character on Main Street?!?!
