A collection of images and other items from Disneyland, theme parks and other amusement parks. Also look for images and items I find interesting, amusing or both.
Next is a candid shot of Walt at the studio at an art show. I believe the gentleman in the striped shirt is John Hench.
Walt proudly poses with the 1965 Tour Guide of the Year Suzanne Fuller.
Although not a fantastic image of Walt, a very historic snapshot of Walt Disney on Disneyland's openining day on July 17, 1955. He is seen here with Governor Goodwin Knight before the first official run of the Santa Fe and Disneyland Railroad.
From the same set of snapshots, Walt Disney riding in the opening day parade. He looks satisfied in these pictures.
Walt was proud of his new attractions. In this photograph he poses proudly with a model of the Matterhorn.
Walt would visit the park and one of his favorite attractions was the Railroad. Here he is exiting the cab of the C.K. Holliday engine.
The last image for today is a rare shot of Walt Disney at ease. This time Walt, Lillian, Diane and Sharon are on the SS Lurline to Hawaii in 1948. I love the amount of leis on the group.
I hope you all can make it a Walt Disney day and also remember Diane Disney Miller.
Next up is the parade float for the Wild West portion of the circus. The Opera House is in the background featuring The Walt Disney Story Featuring Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln.
Final image is of the elephants. No circus parade is complete without trained elephants and beautiful show girls riding the elephants.
Next up is a view of the Hallmark Store where many fantastic souvenir postcards were sold. The location of this shop was in Old Chicago. It appears that the shot was taken under the elevated railroad tracks.
Next image is a portrait of the horse.
Next up is a scene from the petting zoo that surrounded the Borden Elsie the Cow Boudoir. I feel sorry for the poor goat who is not receiving any attention. I also like the fabric of the shorts on the girl on the left with cool mid-century style kitties.
