Princess and the Pooh!!!

Yesterday I went to Disneyland This was my first trip back in a couple of years...
It's sort of like sex with an Ex.
Things really do change... O how the memory likes to play games...
So why the title of Princess and the Pooh? Well, it's like this... Disneyland used to be Special with these great shops that were themed to each land.
i.e.: the Doll shop by Small World,
The one of a kind Antique shop in New Orleans, The Perfume shop...All were different! Now...
It's one big "Disney Store" just like in any Mall... and what do they sell???
That's it! All for kids! What about the Adults??? What about us?
Now let talk the park itself... Gone is the charm. Bright loud colors! And the castle? BRIGHT PINK? the crowns were nice for the 50th but lets get back to the charm... and the street performers, they all have Microphones now... gone is the theme music to each land while these shows are going on... Loud,Loud,Loud!!! Not everything needs to be amplified! Now don't get me wrong, I was a street performer there for years.

Panarama Disneyland

Here's a couple of pictures that are just fun...

I love this one of Main Street... we called this Flower alley... this was before the Lockers at the end of the street. We still had ticket books and a trolly ride was 10 cents or an "A"coupon.

Main Gate entrance at the Flower Mickey and Train Station.

Mouseketeers ...and Darlene...

Back in the early 80s some of the Mouseketeers came back to Disneyland to do a reunion show...
Bobby, Sherri, Sharon, Bonnie, Lonnie, Tommy, Don... and the lot... We had a great time...
The show went over so well the park brought them back again the next year... what Fun!!!
The show went through all the "Days" on the Mickey Mouse Show... "Fun With music day", "Guest Star Day",Talent round Up"...ect.
I was Goofy in the show and have to say these guys were a hoot! We worked hard
and Laughed harder! Darlene was one of my Faves!!!! She always had us rolling in laughter!
These are a couple of my favorite photos with her.
