Mickey For Monday



This trio of lovely ladies is being charmed by Mickey Mouse in Town Square, circa January 1965. This particular style of Mickey was seen in the Park from 1962 until about 1969.

In February 1962, Mickey still had the melting face look:



By July of 1962, he looked a lot less scary:



This previously posted shot is from December 1967:



By the time September 1969 image was captured, he had transitioned to a regular bow tie:

The Mickey Clock, 1970



Here’s a new one for me; I had never seen this clock face for the Sleeping Beauty Castle heralding in the new year, which happened to be 1970 in this image.



Only eleven months later I’d be making my very first trip to Disneyland!

Loading up the Pack Mules



Let's enter our time machine and travel back to January 16, 1965, when Disneyland guests could ride a REAL mule in Frontierland and get a taste of the old west. Yup...something uncontrolled at the Park that would make the legal department go NUTS!!! The little mining town of Rainbow Ridge can be seen in the background.



Here’s a previously posted ground-level view of the loading area:
