Trip to Disneyland: April 1965



Yup, Daveland is giving you another series. This time, our time machine is whisking us back to April 1965. The stars of our series are a boy and a girl who were lucky enough to spend a few days at Disneyland when the park was almost 10 years old! Enjoy the pic of them at LAX; this is about as much of a smile as we’ll see from these two charming tots. Naturally, the first order of business for this family was to check into the Disneyland Hotel:





Can’t you just hear these two now as they patiently wait at the Monorail station? “C'mon dad...stop taking pictures! We want to see Mickey!”



Stay tuned for tomorrow as we see this family’s further adventures. See more vintage & current Disneyland Hotel photos at my regular website.

Wow the two kids are very mod in their outfits. The parents must have been very hip for the time period.

if this is any indication, it will be a true pleasure to watch this adventure unfold.
that opening shot of the 'helo' was just a gem.
i am looking forward to this series.

The color looks like it is going to be pretty gorgeous in this series!

Wow, the helicopter. My Dad and I took the helicopter once, in 1970 I think. I remember it vividly because it developed an oil leak prior to takeoff and oil sprayed down my window and we had to wait for another one.
