May 1964 Treasures, Pt. 1

This set of black and white images hold a special place in my heart for two reasons. First, the people in these photos seem to be having so much fun. Second, they are from the month and year of my birth. Sounds valid to me! Our establishing shot of Town Square shows that the Marine Corps families must be in da' house:

Shot number 2 is a typical site; a guest reaching into their purse/wallet. This lady has been charmed by the balloon seller and is adding to her stash of Disneyland treasures, which appears to already include some plastic flowers from the Main Street Flower Market:

More great images to come from this set!

1964. I was 3. My dad says we went when I was that little but I sure don't remember it. My first DL memory of any clarity is 1967, we went three weeks after the new Tomorrowland opened. Oddly enough, I remember that day with clarity.
Great pictures, as always. Can't wait for part 2
