So, 20 years ago this month was my first visit to Efteling. I thought I’d share a few photos of the park from that trip, although there aren’t too many to share, as this was of course an era before everyone had a camera in their pocket!
That ticket on the left is my original ticket from August 1996.
If you are a regular visitor to Efteling, you can see that many things have changed in 20 years, and many things have stayed the same! The square flowerbeds are (I think) where the Chinese Nightingale building now stands, you can also see Monsieur Cannibale before the roof was built on it, and you can just make out the rowing boats on the Vonderplas with Fata Morgana in the background.
