1970's Disneyland Classics
Just a small batch of late 1970's photos, beginning with a few views from Fantasyland. Thanks to Ben Myers of The Cast Member Nametag Museum for helping pinpoint the date of this batch by using the Tour Guide's nametage as a clue. Without detail-driven readers like Ben, I'd still be in the dark on this one.
Lots going on in shot #2; Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship Restaurant, The Skyway, and Dumbo Flying Elephants. If you want to get technical, you can also count the Casey Jr. ticket booth at the far left.
How about that bouffant on the guest riding Dumbo?
I wonder if her hair moved at all? I doubt it.
On the edge of Tomorrowland, the entrance is wide open and inviting. The PeopleMover shows movement and the two silver buildings on each side look like entry gates. Today, that thoughtful design has been obliterated by the Astro Orbiter.
Bouffants and Strollers. Oh my...
This little boy is in hog heaven, with a gorgeous Tour Guide to show him the ropes. I believe puberty started for him shortly after this momentous occasion.
Well hello, Joan!
How the heck did she fit that hairdo through that short opening? Talk about magic!
Recently, I was contacted by Adam Blair, the Writer and Director of an upcoming feature-length musical comedy, 'Hipster! The Musical'.
The film is a satirical look at the culture of hipsters. The story follows Dave (what a great name!), a shy college kid who must embrace his inner irony (and grow a beard) to try one last time to captivate the girl he loves. And only through song and dance will he muster the courage it takes for a happy ending.
Currently, he is trying to spread awareness of our Kickstarter campaign, from which you can get awesome ironic t-shirts, early access to the film and soundtrack, and even your very own Hipster outfit, complete with a prop from the film.
Plus, you'll be supporting the indie film industry. What a deal! Check it out here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/adamblair/hipster-the-musical
