Disneyland Cast Members, July 17 1968

Hi everybody! I'm back! I sure appreciate all of the splendiferous comments that so many of you left for my 1200th post. Just so ya know, I've spent the last three "days off" working on this blog, so it wasn't much of a vacation; but it's good to be back just the same. Today I have two nice portraits of Disneyland employees, circa 1968; one from a shop, one from a restaurant.

This first lovely lady works at Main Street's "China Closet". Doesn't she have a nice smile? I'm not even remotely interested in china, but maybe I'll wander in and see if she'll go out with me (when I get that time machine working).


Here's a pretty waitress, working at Aunt Jemima's in Frontierland. I like the themed outfit, a gingham dress with lace, and a little hat that is just like the one I wear to job interviews. I'd like a stack of buttermilk pancakes with a side of bacon, orange juice, and her phone number.

Gosh we don't wanna grind ya down, be sure to get some break time Maj! All the same, great to see you back. :)

Both employees are wearing real carnations. Actually, they look a little droopy....the carnations, I mean.

Welcome back Major! Yeah, take a REAL break why don't cha? Your hard work and dedication is greatly appreciated, but don't you need some real time off?

Hmmm, I just went back and saw the date....July 17th, 1968. I wonder if the carnations had something to do with that. I remember on July 17th, 1981 all the female employees were given carnations to wear. They sure don't do THAT anymore!

Hey TokyoMagic- the birthday badges (We are 13 Today) used to be given to all employees with a Carnation as part of the birthday celebrations.

Major- you're making me hungry for pancakes!

I love these old style dresses. It is unfortunate they do not use the same costumes these days.

Wow, full length dresses - somehow these ladies seem more charming dressed like this. Pancakes and Bacon, dang I'm hungry!

Welcome back!

Once you get that time machine working, you can take a long break back in any time you desire. Care to invite me along??

I would never think of taking photos of cast members, but now, years later, I'm happy someone did.
