These pictures are so great! I especially liked the one of Doc at the electric light parade
I can't believe women used to wear dresses and heels in Disney. My, how times have changed.

I love these pictures! I will have to dig some of mine out and scan them this weekend. I haven't been since the Skyway has been closed (yes, it's been a long time)...I know I'll miss it!! It was always a fave of mine!!

Mickey bars used to have faces!

Love that old-fashioned stroller! The back reclined and the grill underneath pulled forward to make a bed a 4 yr old coulda slept in! How 'bout the paper shopping bag? Even though it's Sept most everyone's wearing long pants. It was unusually cool that weekend. Ahhh!

Must've been 1st thing in the morning. Where are all the other riders?

I'm new on this board. OMG these are GREAT!!! I have to get my mom to scan mine from her photo albums. AND I have Viewmaster Reels of Disneyland, circa 1981 or so. Those are too small to post here but I am a teacher and my kids LOVE them!!!! I teach in the inner city and a few days before school was over...one of my kids STOLE them. I went ballistic and they were returned the next day. Calling mom to ask for pics.....

Hi. My name is Steph. My uncle (nbstatic) posted some pictures on here from the 80s. Everyone thought the woman in the picture was an 80s mom...but that was really the little boy's sister. She's my mom. Someone wanted before and after pictures of her, so here you go.

My mom in the 80s.
(Oh my gosh, what was she thinking wearing those clothes and those SHOES??? Who wears heels to Disney World???)




My mom in 2006:

Oh I wish my dad could find our pics from my first trip in 84. I'll have to hound him to look harder.

I also have pics from 99 and 00 with my dh including some from the skyway. When I get a free moment I will scan some of those in and post them.

This has been a great trip down memory lane.
