Found an old picture from 1981 when we took our boys to Disneyland for their very first time. Thirty two years later, this is still a favorite spot for a picture. It really hasn’t changed much except they now have a photo company who will take your memorable picture for you, with a fee of course.
Back in 1981, no one had a cell phone yet. Big businesses were just beginning to hook up computers. Perms were in style, along with hideous shoulder pads (cough). I didn’t know of any women who looked good dressed like a line-backer. But you go with the flow.
Kids were crazy about Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Spiderman. Knight Rider and The A-Team were popular TV shows – I loved Dallas and Dynasty. Atari and Nintendo were just getting started along with MTV. Today everywhere we go, people are attached to their cell phones – back then it was maybe a rubik’s cube on a long bus ride.
This picture brings a smile to my face. After all these years, we still love Mickey Mouse – kids still want a pair of ears and their picture taken in this very same spot.
AHHH Disneyland! The Happiest Place on Earth and STILL is!
