2000th Post

Well I have reached a milestone in this blog, this is my 2000th post. My first post was 6 years and 1 day ago, with a post showing the balloon vendor in Fantasyland dressed as a clown.

I would not have reached this milestone without the support of my fellow bloggers, especially Dan from A Sampler of Things, as well as Dave from Daveland, David from Gorillas Don't Blog, Tim from Vintage Disneyland Tickets, Jed from Vintage Disneyland Goodies, Jason from Disneyland Nomenclature, Kevin from Kevin Kidney and all my readers who have posted comments, suggested corrections, or just read and enjoyed my posts. Here are some of my favorite items I have posted over the years:

I will continue this celebration tomorrow with more of my favorite images. Thanks once again for all the support I have received over the years and posts, it is what keeps me going.

Congrats Patrick - In my opinion, you have the best historic photo collection and were the one that fathered all the Disneyland blogs out there today. Great job!

Wow, many congratulations on your 2000th post! As I have said before, your blog is the one that inspired me to share my collection with other fans of Disneyland (after seeing it mentioned on BoingBoing and flipping my lid). Plus, when I found out who Matterhorn1959 was, I thought, "Hey! I've been buying stuff from him at shows for years!". I appreciate your years of hard work and humor, and of course your incredible collection of photos and even MORE incredible theme park artifacts. Thanks, Patrick!

Congratulations on number 2,000!!! I missed some of these the first time around since I didn't discover you until about 2007/2008. So Disneyland cast members could use the company's inter-office mail to ask another cast member out on a date? Wow, times have changed, huh?

What an incredible batch of rare and fun images. I don’t know how many hits your blog gets but be assured there are many of us out there whose lives are happier because of the effort you put in to posting your vintage photographs and pictures of your Disneyland collectables. Congrats and thanks again!

Congrats on this enviable accomplishment. It's nice that the entire Disneyland-fan community now knows you to be the passionate fan and collector that I'VE known you to be all these years. Way to go!

Hello Matterhorn. I think what Connie said sums it up for me.

Yours and the other Disney blogs keep me sane.

Thank you very much.

Congratulations, Patrick! If you hadn't posted as you've done (and inspired the other vintage blogs along the way), the thesaurus wouldn't exist.
