So I head down to the park today and thought I'd bring the camera
and get some shots of the park...
Walls, Walls everywhere WALLS!
The Castle from the Hub:

Now I know things need to be refurbished but...
This just made me laugh!
The Train Station:
Main Street Hat Shop:
The shot of the Castle from Main Street:
Plaza Inn:
The Entrance to Plaza Inn:
Tinker Bell Toy Shop:

The Haunted Mansion:
The Exit to The Haunted Mansion:
Big Thunder Ranch:
And Yes... It's A Small World!
After all this I laughed and thought of paraphrasing Ronald Reagan ...

Disney Ads


This is from 1969
Great Picture!
Isn't it sitting on the water fountain?

This is WDW
But I loved the drawing of the Characters.
[What do they feed them in FL.?]

and This isn't Disney,
but I just remember going there as a kid.

Disney Ads

The Ads for Disneyland are so great.
I found these in some old Disney News
and Disneyland Vacationland Magazines.

One Hour Photo

Before Digital cameras...
it was the time of the One Hour Photo!
and if you wanted your pictures NOW,
you had to hop the Monorail and head on over to the DL Hotel...

An Hour later
at the " White Rabbit 1 Hour Photo"
You'd have your memories

Pinocchio's Back!
I came across these ads [Christmas 1978]for Pinocchio
and thought how wonderful it was to see
it on the BIG Screen!

Then as I was driving down Hollywood Blvd. yesterday
and I saw the Marquee for the El Captain!!!!
Some things just need to be seen on the BIG SCREEN
the way they were intended.
