Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Pluto and Friends Change the Clock on Main Street, U.S.A.

Today we’re sharing this 1970 photo of Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Pluto and friends changing the clock on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland park for Daylight Saving Time.

Don’t forget to spring forward and set your clocks ahead one hour at 2:00 a.m. local standard time on Sunday, March 14.


  • oops, i mean to the right

  • notice the cast member peeking out of the store to the left of the characters. love it!

  • Awesome!!! I love it… Baloo and King Louie! I wanna be like you-would love to see rare characters like this again!!!

  • That is a REALLY Mousetacular photo… wow! Look at Main Street. It looks like things haven’t changed one bit. I love it!!

    Thank you!!

  • Love the picture!!!!

  • #12 – I think it’s a combination of the angle of the photo, plus MICKEY and his ladder are blocking our view of the castle!!

    Kinda surprising they didn’t take the photo so you could see the castle in the background as well. They only needed to take a couple of steps to their left, so you could see it.

    I’ve been sending a link to this photo to everybody I need to remind that this Sunday is Daylight SavingS Day!!

    Thanks for the reminder, Disney! I would’ve expected it to come in April, like it usually does.

  • Actually, taking a second look, I think it is just the angle of the photo. I assure the castle was there in 1970!

  • The castle is not in this photo because the picture was taken looking towards the train station at the opposite end of main street. Love Disneyland!!

  • This Picture is very cute! I love it

  • That is so awesome.

  • The Castle is not there at the end of the street. Love the picture

  • Isn’t it “Daylight SavingS Time?” I learned something new I guess!

  • Awesome Picture. Notice what is NOT in the picture?

  • Gary, I was thinking the same thing. Crowd much smaller 40 yrs ago.

  • I LOVE this picture. Too cute =)

  • Not as big a crowd in 1970 as 2010.

  • Cute picture.
