  • I just found out about this. Is it too late to submit a photo for the 90s?

  • hello It wont let us vote again after we hadnt voted for 24 hr or even 48 hrs, just letting you Disneyland not sure if theres an issue on your end , Thank You

  • I love the smiling faces of delight around Mickey! Look at the respectful children trying to shake Mickey’s hand. Mickey is & was a positive role model.

  • I voted for qopsCOPAn – It shows the excited looks on all the kids faces and eyes. For me, the enjoyment of taking all my nephews, nieces, cousins, and my own daughter to Disneyland, over the last 35 years, was the excitement in their eyes and on their faces that always told the story of Walt Disney and his dream with Mickey Mouse!! I knew that same feeling as a child. There are a lot of rides that are no longer there and they remain a wonderful memory for all of us. But the site of Mickey greeting the kids is always a wonderful feeling and I feel Walt Disney wanted that for all children, young & old!

  • I loved all of the photos. It was hard to make a selection, but one photo jumped off the page at me and so I voted for it. Good luck to all the entrants!

  • Gosh I love the 60’s! I am also wondering why the IG/Twitter names are jumbled–it’s hard to distinguish one from the other. Also, is the voting working correctly?–the rules say, “…vote for the one Qualifier’s Entry they like best in each Voting Phase. Limit one vote per person per day. Subsequent votes during a calendar day by a single voter will be disqualified”, yet why do I get the message, “Thank you, we have ALREADY counted your vote” when I tried voting more than 24 hours since I last voted? 🙂

  • Another great batch of Disneyland Memories !

  • I voted for KrazyKevinWolff – killer hats dude! Oh, and qopsCOPAn, I don’t think you are really to Mickey’s left; I think you are to the left of Mickey …unless the photo was taken in a mirror!

  • It has to be the Pack Mules through Nature’s Wonderland picture! You can still see Minnie, Mickey, Pinocchio and the Matterhorn, but the pack mules are long gone and sorely missed. Good luck!

  • When will we find out who the winners of the 1950s are?

    Also, why are these twitter handles so weird looking?
