Unfortunately, Judy’s idea that feathers would help the flying saucer take off was mistaken.

I hope that handsome gentleman over there notices my flying skills as well as my matching hat and balloon.

Sadly, “Shuffleboard: the Ride” never quite caught on, early in the park’s history.

Jane faced a frustrating dilemma: She could either turn right or hold on to her hat, but not both. Either choice was fraught with perilous consequences.

“OK, so Doc says that I need to get this thing up to 88 miles an hour. Better hold on to my hat before it falls off. Next stop: Cars Land 2012!”

Have you seen Timothy Q.Mouse? I must be doing something wrong.The magic feather helped Dumbo fly…didn’t it?

Betty was waiting for just the right occasion to wear her new ‘flying saucer’ hat.

Maybe Walt will see me and trade his pink feathered hat for the one I have!

“If I could be first in line for the ride, that would sure be a feather in my…oh, wait.”

Says my sister and I in 1961 (at ages 11 and 8): Mommy and Daddy – are you SURE you won’t let us take this ride….it doesn’t look all that scary. The girl with the hat seems to be enjoying herself. Well…just you wait, when we grow up and come back to Disneyland all my ourselves in 1969 (at ages 19 and 16), we WILL go on that ride!!!

These flying saucers were just not made to ride side-saddle….
