Holy Grail Friday
For me, the Disneyland Holy Grail was finding the negatives for my first trip to Disneyland on December 27, 1970. Although I couldn’t believe we only took 5 pictures that day, it was still cool to see the shots. The first one is from the entrance area, I was able to pose with Mickey & Minnie. How often does that happen anymore without waiting an hour or more?!? Picture two is me with my cousins near “Small World” with one of the Three Little Pigs.
I still remember riding the Mark Twain and seeing the Burning Cabin; this shot is with my brother.
My grandmother & cousins sitting by the castle.
Anybody who had an early Polaroid camera remembers having to find a trashcan to time the developing of the pictures, tear off the paper, throw it away, and then eventually “sealing” the photo with the protective coating stick. What a pain. Here are my brothers doing just that near the Castle. I am hoping they can find the pictures they took!
