I'm a HUGE Back to the Future fan!
The Enchantment Under the Sea dance was a high school dance that was held at Hill Valley High School on Saturday night, November 12, 1955 . It was the dance in which Marty McFly 's parents George McFly and Lorraine Baines fell in love after their first kiss.
Hill Valley High School is actually Whittier High School in Whittier, CA. The school is located 9 miles from my home town. In fact the movie was filmed all over Southern CA where I grew up.
The famous Doc Brown scene at the mall in the beginning of the film was shot at Puente Hills Shopping Center where my mother worked in a candle store.
My dad's brother-in-law, who works at Universal Studios, CA, was part of the crew that built the Hill Valley courthouse square on the Universal Studios back-lot. As well as the Clock Tower for the famous lightning strike scene.
It's been a while since this blog posted DISNEY related stories. Life's been busy and cosplay takes up a lot of my time. Working on new characters, sewing and crafting new projects and upgrading/updating current characters can be time consuming.
I'm happy to announce that this blog will be posting TWO (2) new Disney features beginning in March.
* Walt Wednesday - posting Weds and listed as such in category section
* Disney History - random posts on Disney history, listed in category section
See you soon!
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
