    Very cool video there. Why can't people dress up when going to Disneyland like they did back in '50s? I sware some people today never mastered the skill of dressing themselves and not looking like a thrift store whore.

    Ok, is it just me or did those Autopia CM's kinda grab the kids kinda roughly by the arms to direct them?

    But yeah, always fun to see the old Disneyland.

    I love watching videos of the way Disneyland used to be. It reminds me of my childhood.

    For a few moments, I was 8 years old again! Loved the shots of the "Midget Autopia and the cast members in white shirts and ties!

    Thanks for the post.
