Like the title of this post says... here are two random photos!
I really love this first one (from November 1965), though at first glance it is nothing special. Another photo taken in front of the castle, *yawn*. But it's fun, with the crowd of guests flowing past those kids as if they were rocks in a stream. With that overcast sky, it's hard to tell if it is morning or not. I love the girl's cat's eye glasses, she reminds me a lot of my sister (though she wasn't around yet). Little bro is already rockin' the black socks and souvenir hat.
This one is from January, 1970; over on Main Street, the Opera House was home to "The Walt Disney Story Featuring Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln". Is that a record for the longest attraction name? Among the displays you would find some of Walt's many awards, including this famous honorary Academy Award, proclaiming "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" as a "…significant screen innovation which has charmed millions and pioneered a great new entertainment field". It's cool that the Academy went to the trouble of creating seven miniature Oscars for this one special occasion. I'm sure I've seen it on display at least half a dozen times in various locations!
