Hats at Disneyland, 1960’s



In appreciation for all the great photos that Matterhorn 1959 has shared on his blog, I am presenting this transparency from the 60’s with a whole slew of hats for sale (not to say that he appears to have a hat fetish, but...). Not sure where this cart or shop is located, but I figure somebody will be able to drop a comment or two.

For more vintage Disneyland, check out my regular website where I just added a few new ones today.

Wow, look at the psychedelic colors! These hats definitely have a different "feel" than the ones from the 50's.

It's interesting to see the Confederate Hats as well. From what shows in the photo, I would guess that this is a cart, as opposed to an actual storefront, such as the Mad Hatter.

I think that was the stand in tomorrowland - colors look right and I remember them doing the custom names - as I remember it as kind of to the side of America Sings, you would walk past it to go to the Train Station. I always looked but never bought a hat. I think it was there well inot the 80's.

Dan- you are correct, the hat stand was in Tomorrowland. It was almost directly under the Skyway terminal there, across from Autopia and next to the Carousel of Progress building. Looking at the hats, I would believe the shot is more 1970s than 1960s. The hats I do not see there are the mouse ears. I have the fisherman style hat with the Disneyland graphic seen in the left hand side of the picture (and yes I do have a hat fetish.)

I have to agree with Matterhorn, the hats do look more 70's. But it is a beautiful image, clear and colorful (and unusual).

Could it be the Hatmosphere in Tomorrowland perhaps?
