Owen Pope house at Disneyland – photos

As part of the expansion into Star Wars Land, Disneyland is removing several backstage buildings, support offices, and so-called “temporary” structures. Part of this is the Circle-D Corral, which is the backstage facility used since 1955 to house the horses and ponies needed onstage at Disneyland. And the main person responsible for those animals, Owen Pope, had his own house at Disneyland. The Pope House is also finally being moved to make room for Star Wars.

We celebrate here by showing you photos of Circle-D and the Pope House as seen around 2000/2001. To help you situate it, think of this house as being “just over the berm/hill” where the Disneyland Railroad goes, as seen from the Festival Center and Big Thunder BBQ.

A major function of Circle D, as you’ll see, was to store old Disneyland vehicles, some of which haven’t been seen in decades. Enjoy!
