    Thanks for sharing I wish I could recreate the Jungle Cruise one but I think I'd get kicked out of the park, haha.

    The Mad Hatter and Mickey in those pictures are sooooooooooo creepy! I'm glad the modern fur characters don't look like that.

      Nothing I like more than looking at pictures of Disneyland except looking at pictures of Disneyland that include well dressed models, as opposed to the overly inked behemoths one tends to find in the park these days.

          Wow that's some pretty entertaining material! The castle behind the model is I believe Sleeping Beauty's castle on the Storybook boat ride.

                I recall having seen those on Kevin Kidney's blog a couple years ago. They're stunning!

                  I believe that is actually Cinderella's castle from the Storybook canal ride.

                      Indeed. The first photo clearly shows a fashionably dressed giant female about to rampage upon Cinderella's castle. Poor Cinderella and Charming.

                      Me: "Yes. It happened after a recent trip to Neverland."
                      Peter Pan: "Well, you can dunk your head in the pond behind us, if you want."

                        Aw man, I meant to say Cinderella's castle! I must have been having an off day.

                          It's from an LA Times Magazine layout from 1961. It was re-discovered about 4 years ago, and for 2011 there were a bunch of CM's who had this layout turned into a 12 month calendar for 2011. It was pretty famous back in 2011, and those who got the calendar were pretty high up in the company.

                            Interesting.
                            The link says "This 1961 fashion shoot from Disneyland, "Storybook Fashions," ran as an insert to the April 9, 1961 issue of Midwest Magazine distributed in the Chicago Sun-Times."

                            When I just Googled "Disneyland Fashion Shoot, 1961" to see what else came up there was indeed a link from 2011 that took me back to the Kevin Kidney page that Princess Victoria mentioned here. However, he also says: "Who took these wonderful photos? And who are the three ladies, each one giving her all to look stylish in awkward poses and over-the top outfits? We wish we knew. But we do know the photos were taken for the April 9, 1961 issue of Midwest Magazine, a supplemental newspaper insert in the Chicago Sun-Times. "

                              Some great inspiration for Dapper Day in there. Oh how I wish today's fashion were more reflective of this, less of the 80's. It was so beautiful and classy!
