Sometimes I wish I had something more exciting to offer all of the GDB readers out there. But if I only posted the exciting stuff, this blog would have been over and done with long ago!
The classic floral Mickey portrait is a wonderful touch, and he looks especially good here; sometimes the flowers aren't in full bloom, making the mouse look a bit anemic. I like that they used the same Mickey that was seen in front of the early short films; he's been updated these days. Wouldn't it be cool if the photo of the mother and her kids turned up in a separate lot??
This is actually a pretty nice shot of Town Square at the base of the train station; there's an Omnibus (with a "Disneyland '61" banner on the side), a Surrey, and a Horse Drawn Streetcar, as well as a popcorn wagon. It looks like it was a great day to be at the park!
