Disneyland Hotel, 1957: Pt. 1 & Disneyana



Contrary to chat-room whining, Pirates are nothing new at Disneyland. Heck, even the Disneyland Hotel had a Pirate’s Den! Displaying my inner-geek, I am throwing in a close-up of the tram signage.



No superstitions here with this young lad; he had no problems at all staying in building #7.



In a little cross-blog-promotion, be sure to check out Kevin Kidney’s entry on the Birthday Cake Room in Disneyana. I always look forward to his entries, as they have some of the rarest and coolest stuff around! In a semi-recent survey, Disneyana was voted as the favorite retail shop at Disneyland by Daveland Blog readers. With its mix of art & collectibles and some of the friendliest staff around, this is truly my favorite place to shop at Disneyland.

That kids got a cool outfit going there, well, except the pink (salmon?) flip-flops. I wanna step inside the Pirates Den and see their "gifts"..

Great image! It just feels like 1950s Orange County...
