Vintage Disneyland Polaroids

By Keith Mahne

Like many of you, I absolutely love vintage photos of Disneyland. I post several on our Disney Avenue Facebook page for the daily "Picture of the day" segment there. These types of photos bring a wonderful sense of nostalgia and allow us to look back at the beauty and wonder of Walt Disney's gift to the world. Today's article features vintage polaroid pictures of Disneyland taken on April 1969. You'll even see the back of them displaying a hand written description of each photo. I have fallen in love with these beautiful pictures and I think you will too! Have a look at them after the page break...

"The Matterhorn with flowerbeds in the foreground at Disneyland"

"Mack with fruit cart taken at the flower and fruit market. Main St. USA Disneyland"
