Strike A Pose With Character

Growing up I never really participated or cared for character interactions at Disneyland. I was there to ride the rides and soak in the atmosphere. Now as I get older, I appreciate the characters, their costumes and the interaction between guests and the characters. The enhancement the characters add to Disneyland is one thing that separates Disneyland from other theme parks. The first image is of the Alice In Wonderland crew in front of It's A Small World.

The second is of Snow White taken at the Alpine Gardens. The Alpine Gardens was once the location of the Monsanto House of the Future. When it was removed, the waterfalls and features were left in place and landscape was planted. I like the sign in the background with the sun, the Matterhorn logo and the D for Disneyland.

Although not a costumed character, Dumbo had to be included with the images. Check out the signage for the Art Corner in Fantasyland in the background.

I wonder if her hat is a souvenir?

I'm also wondering how many young women played "Alice"... someday I'm going to see one that I recognize from before!

Great pics, I never thought much of the characters either. The girl in all three pics is mesmerizing....

I love the 1960s Alice, the knee socks and real hair seem to make her more real, not like the Alices of today who all wear that horrible wig...thanks for a great vintage Alice pic!
