Wow! Thanks for taking the time to scan these and share them with us! Sounds like you've got a lot of memories to go through. I was just thinking this weekend, how many pictures would I have if there were digital photos back when I was a kid? It's just soooo easy to take pictures now-a-days.

Did anyone else notice the size of the crowd in this pic??

Oh man I know. We go to WDW and come home with 1,200-2,000 pics each trip. Or to DL and come home with 500-750.

I was calculating it out, and I have about 1,500-1,750 pics from my entire childhood. I have all of my parent's negatives, and that's where all these pics came from, scanned negatives. Most of the packs were 24 shot rolls, some were 36, so I'm not exactly sure how many I have...yet. So far I've scanned about 100 of them. Each of those Disneyland days were a single roll of film - for the entire day... and such interesting choices of photos too.

Just a typical spring (and summer) day at Disneyland. That's definitely one thing that is very, very noticeable for WDW vets who are first-timers to DL. The park is smaller than the MK - plus there's just more stuff in that park vs. the MK - all shoved into less acreage. The walkways are more crowded and you can feel it so much faster than you do at the MK. When the company was first planning the MK - the imagineers were definitely working on Walt's desire to "fix" some of the problems inherent at DL. Wider walkways, sidewalks & space between attraction queues was a huge fix!

Of course, that was 14 years ago... and I was 17... and I'm 6'5".

But still, it has been her cooking (and baking) skills that have made the difference.
(Note: I've been instructed that "baking" and "cooking" are different)

I'm happy to say this morning I weighed in at 204.
That was this morning. I may have had a few peanut butter eggs and jelly beans today.

Thanks.

I don't have very many actual pics from when I was a kid - my mom divided the ones she didn't want between my brother and I (not many - she kept most of them) but DID give me all of the negatives for safe keeping. Sadly the first year+ of my life were all polaroids (remember those? NO negatives! but you get a developed pic in about a minute) that disappeared somewhere along the road in the move from their apartment to the house they bougt in '71 that I grew up in. They backtracked, etc, but never did find that (and another )box that fell out of the truck. At least I have my grandparents' slides from that year. (This reason right here, is part of why DW and I have pretty much "over-compensated" with pics even long before we ever got a digital camera... I didn't want any of my children to miss out on any part of their childhood photographically).

I have a slide/negative scanner - and it's a long process - but I'm getting through them all slowly. About 5 years ago I went through and scanned my grandparents' 2,300 slides from 1950-1980 to be put on CD's as a Christmas present for my mom, her sister, my brother and our cousins. So eventually all of these images I'm currently scanning will be put on a CD for my brother as well.

Up until now my only disease has been flyfishing in our beautiful state and visiting Yellowstone but I just cannot get WDW out of my mind. We want to go back again (and maybe again) DGF and I are starting to plan a new trip for early June 2011. Is this normal? Were not rich, I own a portrait studio and DGF is a professor at Idaho State U. We really want to make WDW happen again at least two more times and maybe this coming time add a couple of days at Universal Studios. Were starting the fun of planning and we think were going to do it even better this time. I'll look forward to posting and checking in at Dis Dad Club as we plan our new excursion.
Welcome! Glad you found us!

Oh I'm so sorry about that. That is hard. - Just another reason why I'm working on trying to get all of those negatives scanned...you just never know when some kind of disaster might strike.

Thank goodness for digital these days. I have all of ours on our computer's external hard drive (when our computer crashed last year everything else was lost, but our ext hd was not affected by that problem thankfully), plus I have a complete set on my portable hard-drive that I take with me everywhere my laptop goes, followed by multiple back-ups on CD - one complete set I keep here in my office in addition to what we have at home. Plus as I burn new ones, I send a copy out to my mom "for safe-keeping" as well.
