A look back at one of my earlier trips to Disneyland.
Me with my dad just outside the main gate.
Storybook Village Here we are in the Monkey cage on Casey Jr. Train inside Fantasyland.
My mom is wearing the checked top, seated behind me and I am waving to my dad before we leave the station.
On the ride you're able to see Gepetto's Village where the miniature cottages are arranged. There's Gepetto's workshop, the dwarfs cottage, Toad Hall, Toad Manor, Cinderella's castle among others. Walt Disney had a passion for miniatures!
And of course at midnight we would line up on Main Street U.S.A. to see Tinkerbell fly from the tip of the Matterhorn all the way to Sleeping Beauty's castle!
At our Tea Party Graduation the last day of our Princess Summer Camp, we decorated the Parks and Rec Center with beautiful pinks and purples.
We had three tables set for six guests. Paper plates, plastic cups and utensils of course for easy cleanup.
Our tables were covered in rose petals, with flower filled vase centerpieces. A tulle covered lamp shade and decorative tissue paper pom poms hung over the tables. Each guest received a goodie bag and wand decorated in tulle.
Our buffet table had several levels of trays and serving dishes.
Raffle prize winners received baskets full of Princess goodies!
Don't they look adorable?
Princess Summer Camp spanned two weeks. the age range was for girls 6 - 12. Each day a different princess taught class.
There were lots of arts and crafts. The girls learned princess poise and the curtsy.
Here the girls are doing the under the sea limbo!
Snow White taught manners and the girls played games like digging for gems and they made princess hats.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
