After a successful previous year, the Gift-Giver stayed through 1986 to issue some additional prizes.
For about 2 months in the Springs of 1986, 1987, and 1988, the Circus invaded Disneyland
Following the Circus, 1987 & 1988 had State Fair celebrations in the Fall...complete with Ferris Wheels (at/on the Main Street Railroad tracks, within the central Plaza Hub, and Big Thunder Ranch)
Spring 1988 introduced the 1950's inspired "Blast to the Past". The delayed opening of Splash Mountain in 1989 likely inspired a second year of the 50's theme.
