I remember sending these kind of postcards when I was little. The first time I went to Disneyland was in 1962 and it was a wonderous place to be. Full of such fantasy, dreams and joy I could hardly believe that a place like this existed.
A few of the things that stuck in my mind; my father went out every morning, picked oranges off the tree and made us fresh orange juice every morning. Peter Pan ride, I was so sure he was real, I do believe Tinkerbell is real. The Space ride to Mars, which no longer exists, totally made me scared when the seats rose and fell. Abraham Lincoln talked!! And Mickey Mouse gave me a hug!
Last time I was there? April 2nd of this year…When am I going back? As soon as I can.Post Tags: 1962, Disney, Disneyland, orange groves, oranges, postcards
