I Couldn’t Resist…
…wearing my Disneyland skirt another day. Since my Disneyland skirt received such a wonderful reception the first day wearing it, I had to wear it again on our last day in the park. While waiting for the park to open I had several older cast members come up to me asking what the story was behind it and we chit-chatted for a long while. They especially appreciated the fact that I had the Monsanto House of the Future on the skirt, an attraction that disappeared in 1967.
Since Disneyland had their Mardi Gras celebration going on, several characters, including Mickey, Minnie, Chip and Dale were all in Mardi Gras outfits! So of course I had to get my pictures taken with them! Chip and Dale really flipped over my skirt, it was quite delightful!
Later in the day I changed into my Enchanted Tiki Room pantsuit. I had several people, mainly cast members, come up to me to comment on the outfit, many had never seen anything like it before!
I’m always sad leaving Disneyland, but I know we’ll come back again real soon. Maybe even as soon as November. Meanwhile, I came up with several more Disney themed circle skirt ideas, and I can’t wait to get started on them! So many sewing projects! Once again, stay tuned for even more Disneyland photos, since we are picking up our film from our dual lens camera tomorrow!!

How about Thanksgiving for another d-land trip? (november!) That is when Soren’s family has a big dinner in 90210. Maybe we can all go together to Disneyland and MAYBE you guys could come to the fancy dinner with us too.
We were aiming for Nov. 5th for Rock Around the Park http://rockaroundthepark.com/ to celebrate my sister’s birthday. But if you do go for Thanksgiving, make sure you get a reservation early if you want to eat at someplace nice like The Blue Bayou.
You have amazing style…so fun to read about your adventures!
I saw your tweet get replied to from the Disneyland twitter and my curiosity took over and I checked out your tweets which brought me here. And I have to say, I’m happy it did. I love your creativity! I can’t wait to see more photos!
Oh, wonderful! I’m so glad you checked things out! I hope to post the pictures from our film camera this evening!
Oh my goodness! I spotted this on the Thriftaholic’s blog and I’m gobsmacked! I love it so much. Our family visited Disneyland in January and I proudly wore my 1950s Lady and The Tramp circle skirt and my 1960s Adventureland dress.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
I have seen the Lady and the Tramp skirt you speak of, but an Adventureland dress!? Did it have tiki masks on it? I’ve seen a few dresses in that print.
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the skirt and pantsuit. I grew up 5 miles from Disneyland so I was at the park many, many times in the time period of the retro rides/exhibits and when the Tiki Room cloth would have sold and I miss old time Disneyland. How fun that the cast members and characters had so much fun traveling down memory lane with you.
