A Vintage Visit to Disneyland

The other day I started thinking about photos and adventures that happened over the last few months that I never got a chance to share.  Well, this one sticks out in my mind because it was an absolute blast!  One of my best friends, Ginger of the Scene in the Past blog, was out visiting around the time of Costume College this summer and we decided it would be a blast to go to Disneyland in 1950s clothing.  Ginger had never been to Disneyland before, so this was a perfect excuse for me to get a chance to go back to one of my favorite places.  I invited our good friends Teresa and Kat, who joined us for part of the day, and the four of us had a really great time!  Here’s a few pictures.

Ginger just looked so picture perfect with these lovely 1950s style patio sets I just had to take a snapshot!

Two girls in vintage patio dresses in a tree house (it will forever be Swiss Family Robinson tree house to me.. I love that they still play the song at the end of the “attraction” on a makeshift phonograph)

Two Indiana Jones nerds at the exit of the Indy ride with the truck from Raiders.

The traditional Fantasyland castle shot!

I just love Disneyland, and it’s SO fun to go with friends in 1950s clothing.  It just feels *right* somehow :)

Of course we had to do all the old-timey rides like the train ride through the “grand canyon”, the Tiki Room, and all the other fun vintage things that makes Disneyland so great for vintage lovers.

    Would you believe me if I told you that I worked at Disneyland for the summer 30 years ago? I didn’t love my Tomorrowland costume (serving hamburgers and fries), but my friend and I used to enjoy the park for hours when we weren’t working. There really was enchantment and excitement everywhere we went!

    One of these days when I’m out in CA again, I have got to go to Disneyland! Been to the Disney World parks in FL enough times, but the original still seems like the best and most magical to me. ;)
