Disneyland Monday - Tea With Toad

Yet another vintage Disneyland postcard, this one featuring the pre-1983 Fantasyland.

Brian At The Contemporary

Here are a couple of pictures of myself at the Contemporary from the 90's.

This one is actually from the 2000 Disneyana Convention (with Prince Phillip and Princess Aurora).

My junior year of high school (1990) our prom was held at the Contemporary.  Here my date and I strike a pose with Mickey.

From 1991 or 1992, I'm goofing around in the lobby while taking a break from the parks.  I believe that's an EPCOT hat on my head that I didn't even remember having until I saw this picture.

Endor Vendors

The fantastic Endor Vendors sign with crashed Speeder Bike.

Endor Vendors was much more well themed to the area than Tattoine Traders which resides here now.

Darth Vader keeps watch over the interior waiting to choke you with the Force if you don't purchase enough souvenirs.

Conservation Station

Or Rafiki's Planet Watch, or whatever it's called this week.  Well, anyway, we've stepped off the train and are ready to explore.  Maybe we'll even get to pet some animals.

Hollywood Junction

Hollywood Junction is a great place to see what's happening in Hollywood and possibly catch a ride on the Redcar down Sunset Boulevard (if only).

An early shot of Hollywood Junction when Sunset Boulevard was still under construction.

Another early shot of the Junction.

Until getting ready to post these pictures I hadn't noticed that the fountain had its color changed at some point.

Classic Journey Into Imagination

Here are some pictures of Journey into Imagination from the 80's and early 90's before it transformed into the brightly colored hollow shell of itself that it is today.
