Classic Character Reunion 09

I've been working a lot lately(That's Good)
so no time to blog(That's Bad)
nice to have a moment to sit down and post...

Tonight were having a
"Classic" Character Reunion
(That's anyone that was a Character at Disneyland
between 1955-1985)

This is the Character Dept Cast from 1980
In just 5 years the Character Dept. more than doubled!
[Note the pony farm in the background]
This shot is from the mid-70s
O' to be a Classic!

Aug. 2nd 2009

Well it's been a while...
I've been working and haven't had any time to blog...
and how I've missed it...

So today ...
what did I celebrate?
My Birthday! Disneyland Free! Yeah!
it starteds with me signing up to go to the park,
Then you print out the ticket...
as it came out of the printer,
I started to sing

"'Cause I've got a golden ticket
I've got a golden chance to make my way
And with a golden ticket, it's a golden day"
I wanted to just spend the day at the park
walking around and taking it in...
a lazy day...
I walked over through Fantasyland
then down Big Thunder Trail
[I've always liked to stroll the trail]
when I looked up and saw how big the willow
trees were... WOW.
I just thought how Beautiful!

then standing on the bridge
across from Big Thunder and looking at the
Tunnel ...

When BTM opened we used to feed the ducks
from the bridge in the morning...
Now the guest were feeding "Crawfish"

Then a lazy ride around the river on the Mark Twain
[Something I hadn't done in 20 years]

Fowlers Inn
The back side of the tunnel
Nature Wilderness RR
[is this car from the Nature Wilderness ride???]

Over in New Orleans Sq.
in what used to be the perfume shop
I saw Godzilla eating Tinkerbell!!!
{made me laugh}

A simple day that made me happy...
Thanks for the smile...
