Visit to Storybook Land



C’mon sweetie...look alive! You’re a Disneyland Cast Member! This poor lass looks like she hasn’t had her coffee yet. Of course she hasn’t; it’s June 1964, and about the only coffee she’s going to get is over at Town Square in the Hills Brother Coffee House. Photo #2 is of three lasses waiting for their Extreme Makeover. Just kidding. This shot in front of Black Monstro is undated from the 1950’s.



A visit to Storybook Land wouldn’t be complete without a shot of Cinderella’s Castle from June 1964.



Here’s a closeup to show how it looks today:

Great shots! What the heck is that teapot thing doing next to the Cast Member in that first shot? There appears to be another one on the boat behind her??

Hey, those triplets with an Extreme Makeover could have been one of those hot girl groups of the 60’s! “The Monstro-ettes”

Thanks for the great posts!

P.s. Of topic, question from yesterday’s post. Are the current little buildings at Rainbow Ridge in the same place or were they moved around when was Thunder Mountain put in? I have tried to compare you old photos with your new ones, and I just can’t tell…

Aren't those three women the Hanson sisters? (lesser known siblings of the Hanson brothers of "Slap Shot" fame).

Great posts Dave.

BTW: thanks for the kind words on my blog!

Tim - I have done some comparing, and all I can say is that it looks like they have either been moved around or rebuilt. They appear to be a lot more dense in placement back in the old days.

It's interesting that they didn't replace Disneyland's Cinderella Castle model with one that looks like the real castle that open in 71' at WDW.
