The Groovy 1970s

The 1970s were definitely a groovy time. Nothing reflects the grooviness more than the fashion especially hair and clothing. First off is a nice image from the entrance to the Pack Mules and Nature's Wonderland.

The next shot is of a group hanging out at the front of Tomorrowland. The boy walking towards us has one of the groovy bags and wearing a bucket hat. The design of the entrance and the plantings are definitely groovy.

The last image from this set is of a lady with a fantastic hair do (left over from the 1960s) standing in line for the Matterhorn.

Moving later into the groovy decade, a couple of cute teenagers practicing their driving on the Global moving van.

It appears dad was very groovy. Check out the shirt, shoes and the pose! I am going to start a petition to have Tim from Vintage Disneyland Tickets wear this outfit next time he visits Disneyland.

Groovy dad is awesome! But check out that dude behind him... time to button up that shirt, sir! I have to say that I have gained a new respect for the Disneyland of the 70's.

Yo Disney collector the "groovy bag".

Do any of you have one of those bags that you could scan and post?

I loved those bags, i remember keeping one for a souvenier(sp?), but it's gone now.

Really bright, colorful, and all mickey heads & c.

Anybody...? somebody...? Anybody...?
