Aw man, when the Tomorrowland Terrace was actually hopping...
And during the summer and holidays, you had the Tomorrowland Stage/or Space Mountain Stage, to say nothing of big-name big bands at Carnation Plaza Gardens, the shows at the Tahitian Terrace, Teddy Buckner at the French Market...the whole park used to really come to life after dark.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
For today, a look at New Orleans Square (my personal favorite area of the park):
In the "no longer acceptable things" category, notice the shoe-shine boy in lower right corner.
Bump bump...bump bump.....I miss this Bride version, myself. Constance is too..chatty.
First pic: Hahahaha oh my gawwwd, that is crazy! How much things have changed.
Second pic: The older bride had that morbidity that Constance lacks. I remember being stuck for five minutes at this part and as every second went by and every heartbeat sounded against her chest, I got more and more scared because I was convinced she was going to come alive at any minute.
Such a great thread, RB! When you took those couple of days off I went into nostalgia withdrawal.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.
For today, going slightly more recent in the scheme of things (that is, not the 50's and 60's heh)
In the middle years between Rocket to the Moon and rather crappy pizza...
The Matterhorn's added tribute to Frank Wells, President and CEO of Disney (along with Michael Eisner) from the early eighties to 1994. He died in a helicopter accident returning from skiing in Nevada and was a avid mountain-climbing enthusiast, hence his tribute placement.
RD-D2 and C3P0 being prepared for their roles in Star Tours.
Promotional ad that appeared in the Disney News magazine.
Also from the Disney News, a rare shot of Main Street during the night/cleaning shift.
so there were 2 brides in the past 55 years?
didnt know that O.o
It is actually possible there were four different models at Disneyland over the years. When it opened, WDW had a zombie/corpselike bride that was quickly gone and DL may have had her too. There was a faceless one with glowing eyes and a veil over face, then there was the sculpted one (who alternately had glowing eyes and a veil covering face, or this form pictured).
Constance is either version 3.0 or 4.0 of the same character in terms of physical appearance.
