Getting Mod: July 29, 1973, Pt. 4

Hope you can stand the shock of going from Tomorrowland to Frontierland! We are just inside the gates and the crowds are actually swarming! Today, this is one of the few places that is fairly easy to photograph sans guests.

This shot of the Golden Horseshoe looks fairly typical...

until we zoom in and see that the Oaks Tavern is still around. For all you beer guzzlers, don’t get too excited about opportunities lost. No alcoholic beverages were served here.

The bougainvillea sure makes a purty canopy. Almost helps block out the Freddy Prinze wannabe. Hey’re at Disneyland. How about buttoning that shirt up a bit? Oh, I forgot. It’s the 70’s.

Wrappin’ it up today with the Columbia & The Twain.

In anticipation of the upcoming home video release of “Tangled,” here are more bonus clips:

I don't remember seeing those lights that apparently shone on the signs of the Golden Horseshoe Revue before...

Oaks Tavern was a great place to grab a burger,fries and Coke before heading upstairs to the break area above AJ's back in my day.

And I should have added, it's very possible I did just that on this day. Great memories.

Thank you , thank you, thank you for confirming that there was something there before The Back Stage Cafe or Stage Door Cafe or whatever it's called now. I kept telling people that I could have sworn.... but you know how it goes. At least now I feel vindicated, LOL.

In the second photo, my eyes nearly popped out of my head when I saw those horrid plaid palazzo pants on the woman just right of center. OOF!

My short term memory may be lagging but, like you, those days working the Park seem to return when the pictures are posted.
