To say that I was floored would be an understatement. Here are the first few photos that I took right after walking through the gate. Wow...
I literally turned and turned and turned in circles several times until I started to get a bit dizzy. I had planned to record an audio report for The Disneyland Gazette but at that point, words had become useless to me. Looking at these photos now, I still can't adequately describe just how beautiful Buena Vista Street truly is.
After I sorta "came out of my spell", I glanced down and saw these Grad Nite tickets. I thought it made a neat shot, LOL.
OK, let's look at these cool buildings again!
I have a special spot in my heart for this. For those of you that don't know, this is a replica of the Hyperion Street bridge in Los Angeles. I grew up near that bridge and traveled across it hundreds if not thousands of times, never knowing how close it was to Walt's first studio. In 2000, I learned about this and while I have always loved this bridge, it made it even more special to me. I liked to imagine Walt driving his car across that bridge on his way to Glendale to eat lunch at the Tam 0'Shanter!
Again, I can't tell you how much I enjoyed exploring Buena Vista Street!
