    I love those old ticket booths! Also always loved the attraction posters on the Monorail pylons. However, never remembered them box framed so nicely. Did that go away at a later date when they were just mounted directly on the pylons?

      Also it’s a different Disneyland these days, with more attractions and bigger attractions—and much better character costumes.
      Not to mention (usually) setting characters up in predetermined locations.
      My top favorite Disneyland attractions:

      1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
      2. Pirates of the Caribbean
      3. Splash Mountain
      4. Mad Tea Party
      5. Peter Pan's Flight
      6. Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

        I think those were the characters that I remember from my first trip ever to DL back in 1963. Now they look so creepy!

          Whilel the character design has definitely improved, the whole character encounter experience has not. There was something special about suddenly encountering a couple characters just roaming the park. As a child, that made the whole experience, even if I did not actually go up and touch or take a picture with the character. When I was growing up, I don't remember Mickey really. I remember the seven dwarfs, Baloo, Captain Hook and so on. That made a day at Disneyland a bit more magical. Somehow getting a fastpass, waiting in line and then only to see a character in a cloistered room does not seem fun to me.

            I agree with you that it was better when the characters where allowed to "roam" the park freely instead of having a set location as they do now.

              I do like that Disneyland still entertains the park guests with characters while they wait for the park to open.
              Unlike Magic Kingdom in Florida, where everyone is forced to be "sardine-canned" in the entrance, causing a traffic jam at the turnstiles, Disneyland allows the guests into Main Street before the actual opening time so they can wander around and shop, grab a bite to eat, and meet various characters in Town Square.

                That's true, and I agree that it's nice in DL to have Main Street to spread out in. But I do enjoy the park opening show that they do at the entrance to the MK in Florida!
