Disneyland's Storybook Land (including Canal Boats of the World) premieres. The
canal, located in Fantasyland, contains 465,000 gallons of water in which 13 boats
(powered by outboard motors) sail. The vessels are named Cinderella, Daisy, Aurora, Alice, Faline, Flora, Fauna, Flower, Katrina, Merryweather, Wendy, Snow White, and Tinkerbell. The ride is partly based on Madurodam, a tourist attraction in Holland that Walt Disney once visited.
Mickey's Birthdayland opens in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Located between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland (past the Tomorrowland Speedway), guests can also arrive via the Walt Disney World Railroad.
Disney's 37th animated feature Tarzan is generally released in the U.S. The soundtrack features five tracks by Phil Collins - who will win an Academy Award and a Grammy Award.
