Balloons, Balloons, Balloons, July 1965



Back from a few days at DLand and thought I’d start off with a beautiful (albeit non-rare) shot of a cast member with balloons entering the Town Square area. My second shot is from February, 1965 of two guests hanging with a rabbit from Alice.





My last shot is one that asks for help again—is this underwater at the Submarine Lagoon? It’s from February, 1965, and the surrounding slides are from DLand, so I would guess it’s not one from another park. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Ah, yes, through the porthole windows of the Disneyland subs one used to watch those turtles pivot up and down on rods hidden on the opposite side from the viewer. I took a video of it the week before the attraction was closed so that my children would be able to see and hear what it was like!

Wow the balloon vendor is very nice! And the sea turtles are definitely Disneyland. How were the crowds at Disneyland? Did you do the Halloween event at DCA?

Great pics! It's interesting to see the Imperial German crest over the castle exit to Snow White Grotto. I don't think it's there anymore. Also, the exit sign below it has changed to a more generic one.
