The tumultuous 1960's were almost over when these photos were taken... the next night was New Year's Eve, and then... hello 1970!
As is often the case, winter days mean blue skies and brilliant sunshine in SoCal. The high temperature was only 65º, so it was a bit on the chilly side even at its warmest. (Thanks again to Jason's Disneyland Almanac)!
I'm so glad that the façade of "It's a Small World" has returned to its original color scheme, as seen here. Mary Blair considered white the most festive of colors, which sounds strange at first, but she knew a thing or two about color. As the building gleams in the winter sun, with gold highlights for added warmth, it really dazzles. The topiaries are awesome too!
The animated mechanical clock is doing its thing (every 15 minutes, folks), making the wait in line go a lot faster. It's so novel to see Disneyland guests so bundled up!
