Forgive the dorky hat

I loved going to that restaurant in Tomorrowland to hear the groovy music.
Tuppence.....love the Donald Duck parade photos.
Me in Mickey's Music Revue lobby I think circa 1979 (I've always had a thing for Mickey so I wanted my picture taken with the mural).

I will post them in a second.
I would LOVE to see pictures. I am so glad you have them from that time period. I guess that confirms it. We were definately there for Donalds birthday and we STILL sing that birthday song for our birthdays.

Could that be what is now Cosmic Ray's? It kinda looks like the stage area where Ray sits in that place.

The birthday duck himself.


Mickey and Minnie.


A few rare characters including Scrooge, Granny Duck (second level with Daisy), and one of Donald's cousins (can't 'member his name).
Yes, that is definately it. Thanks so much for posting. I still have the Donald t-shirt in plastic with that face on it.

Why is the Sigma Phi Epsilon guy wearing a hard hat? Is he one of the Village People?

1976. . . My Dsis (on the right with a very groovy hat) and me (on the left with the wannabe Dorothy Hamill haircut) with Pinocchio (a very demonic-looking Pinocchio!).

Well, I'm in my (*gasp*) late 30's and growing up, I didn't know ANY parents who wanted to shell out money for something they didn't need....If a kid could walk, well, then, that kid's gonna walk!!! And Definitely - NO CRYING!!
Can I get a witness?!?!?!?!

Can you start a thread with this picture???
You know, where we can post our own captions as to what we think is going on or being said?
This photo is too funny

Yes, that is what is now Cosmic Ray's. We always used to go to this restaurant first thing when I was a kid. When that stage rose up from below ground with the band playing as it rose, I knew I was at Disney! Took my wife and son to Cosmic Ray's back in February, and while the restaurant etc. took me back to when I was a kid, the lack of that "magic" stage was a bit of a letdown.

According to this page:

Cosmic Ray's Fun Facts

the restaurant used to be called Tomorrowland Terrace and the stage still exists. Apparently, it is still used for guest music acts sometimes. Also nice little tidbit about the characters using Cosmic Ray's to stay dry before parades on rainy afternoons. Don't know how accurate this data is as most of the postings are a few years old.

It went to Looneyland, by way of Crazytown, with a detour through Wackoville, and a stop for snacks in Bonkerscity

The only thing that would make it funnier is if the macho man is a disboard member and recognizes themself!!!!!
