I have two shots of Sleeping Beauty Castle, taken during what looks like a chilly Christmas season, 1956. The decorations are so minimal that it's kind of refreshing. A few wreaths, some garlands, maybe a bell or two; that's it.
Spot the Skyway buckets!
Talk about the "off season"! Even the swans were lonely. But I love seeing Disneyland in its early, less polished form, when the landscape was constantly being refined, and there was probably some real doubt as to whether the park would last more than a few years.
