True Love at Disneyland, 1965
Based on the rings I see on their fingers, I assume this young couple is married. I also assume they are crazy about each other from the way that they happily pose for each other. Their day started outside the Disneyland Hotel.
Those who stay at the Disneyland Hotel now should not waste their time trying to figure out where on the property these were shot. The Hotel of 1965 bears no resemblance whatsoever to the completely rebuilt behemoth that exists today. Instead, spend your time looking at what's in this young gent's pocket, such as tickets to the Park.

Once inside the gate, it's all about getting a shot in front of the Mickey Floral, which was probably the most popular Kodak Picture Spot.
And the sign that designates it as the perfect place for a photo:
As the sun begins to set, the young couple poses in front of Skull Rock:

Over at the Carnation Plaza Gardens, it appears that the Elliott Brothers are playing up a storm on this particular evening:
Yup. That's them!
I also had to zoom in to get a closer look at the pattern on this shirt. Kowabunga!
Riding home on the Monorail; looks like she had a fantastic day!
