    Disneyland 1958

    Hi everyone. I know I haven't posted in quite a while, but I came across some slides recently of my dad going to Disneyland for the first time with his parents. I haven't added them to a photo-hosting site yet, but I did post them to my blog if you're interested. Hope everyone's well.

    Yep. I'll keep trying to put the photos up here when I can. Apparently, this technology do-hickey thingy confuses me.

    I love the third one, it shows the mound of dirt from the moat that would someday (the next year if this was 58) become the Matterhorn. I believe the hill was called 'Holiday Hill' but maybe not at this time.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    The pic with 'Uncle Roy' bears out my own stories of meeting Roy in the park a few times when I was a kid. He would be at various places throughout the Park with a sketch pad drawing quick doodles of Disney characters for kids at no charge. For those of us of the original Mickey mouse Club of which Roy was co-host, this was a real and genuine thrill.
    Thanks for sharing these!

    Thank you so much for taking the effort to share these with us, AliKzam! It is always a treat to see old pictures like these. Meeting Roy -- wow, what a moment, meeting such a "celebrity" back in those days. It is so interesting to look back at the past and see how different Disneyland was once upon a time. Moreover, it's a special joy to view these precious memories of the Disneyland experience, and imagine the thrill which people like your Dad must have felt. That timeless, child-like, magical fun is what resonates still with me and so many others. Thanks again for posting!
