A Visit With Snow White and Dwarves

One of the innovative changes to amusement parks that made Disneyland a theme park is the chance to meet animated characters. Walt knew that his animated characters were beloved by guests, so he created meet and greet encounters with the characters. From the beginning, there was a definite evolution as the characters became closer to the film versions. The Disney studio's first major hit was Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. The characters have appeared at Disneyland for many years and have always delighted guests as can be seen in the two photographs. First up is a young girl meeting Snow, Dopey and Doc. Everyone is smiling broadly.

The second image features a grandmother and grandfather with broad smiles meeting Bashful.

I love the vintage costumed characters of Disneyland. The second image really captures the joy of being at Disneyland.
