Birthday Memories


Disneyland and I were “born” just a few days apart, the Park on July 1 and I on July 4 of 1955. When I was little my family went for a visit on my birthday. I was too afraid to go into the cave on Tom Sawyer Island, scared I would become lost. Over the years when I lived nearby we must have visited 25 times but I never got around to seeing that one small place.

Recently we returned to California and I just had to go over and finally enter the cave. What a wonderful feeling to at last get a look at a very special place. In the middle of summer in SoCal it is great treat to find a shady and quiet place. Now I can say I have truly seen all of Disneyland!
