    Disneyland in the pre-Eisger years was meant for everyone. The difference is that back then, Disneyland was not thought of by its management as a place to just push princesses, kiddie kartoon franchises and toy brands. It was a showplace of innovation and originality, not a marketing platform for brands, brands and more brands. It was Disneyland's unique mix of intellect and fantasy that made it world famous as a place that attracted the Ray Bradburys and Charles Laughtons of life, as well as children -- and the child in all of us.

    it combines fantasy and history, adventure and learning,
    together with every variety of recreation and fun,
    designed to appeal to everyone."

      Yup. Under the CA child labor laws, on school days they can work 4 -5 hours but also require at least 3 hours of tutoring so it might not be worth it to have them there just for background.

        Oh wow they brought out the old attraction posters at the front gate like they used to have. How cool is that? I wonder if that's the same limo that was on display at the last D23 Expo.

            I've been dying to see more photos of children! I sold a bunch of vintage children's clothing for this project and I'm hoping to spy some of it. I'm guessing that as others said, that they are being careful about when the children are on set with respect to working hours. I'm crossing my fingers that I'll spot one of my pieces on screen.

              Not sure if this article has been linked but it has more pics of Tom as Walt.

              I agree that Tom is not a 'ringer' for Walt Disney, but I think there are plenty of movies where an actor only has a slight, if any, physical resemblance to the person they are portraying, real or fictional. But if they are able to nail their mannerisms & speech patterns with the right hair & makeup they can be pretty believable. I think Tom Hanks can pull it off. After all, we all loved and bought him as Forrest Gump, didn't we? Lord knows he doesn't resemble the Forrest in the book.

                Oh good find! They deserve posting! But do please read the article. It's very good.

                  Thanks for posting the actual pics, Clara. I can link an article, but I'm not savvy enough yet to cut & post the pics. Someday......

                  It is a good article, isn't it?

                    I was going to use George C Scott as an example of how actors don't need to look like the character the are reenacting, but George C Scott really does look like Patton...

                    I think Tom Hanks will work great though. I think more of a problem is they BOTH have very recognizable faces, so its hard not to think "Tom Hanks" when you watch, but his performance will probably make up for that.

                          If I were to not know they were filming and saw Tom in the park, I would definitely be shocked.

                            OMG LOVE Emma Thompson!! I will go see it if she is in it.

                            Tom Hanks as Walt... not enough wrinkles... looks too young and chubby.

                              At first I kept wondering why there was a limo in the Entrance Plaza. Then I remembered that this was the parking lot back then.

                                Wooh what a relief. I showed the pictures to my grandmother who worked as a manager at a costume company so she can confirm the authenticity. Thankfully she agreed that the clothes were correct for the period and they do not have to re-shoot! What I thought was cool was she went to Disneyland for her first and only time in the 1970's and she recognized the retro flags and the old tournament style of Fantasyland.
