The time has finally arrived to choose the top Disneyland Resort memory from the past 60 years! For the last few months, you have submitted your memories and voted on the top selections from each of the Disneyland Decades – 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000 to the present – all to decide who will win the grand prize: a trip to Disneyland Resort to kick off the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. Well, today is the day to choose, and we’re putting the power in your hands!

Here are the finalists – the top photos from each decade:


From the 1950s – @RizzosCookies: 1955 Disneyland opening week. Cousins w/ Mr. Walt Disney @Disneyland fire station


From the 1960s – @KrazyKevinWolff: My dad, uncles, & grammy at the ‪@Disneyland ‪#Matterhorn Bobsleds in the late ’60s.


From the 1970s – @eilonwey28: 1970’s Disneyland. Me and Pluto on Main St. – taken by my Dad in Mar. 1977, on my 2nd birthday.

From the 1990s – @mssmith702: This was in 1999 and was Dominic’s first visit to Disney. I always thought this pic should be a postcard. I miss these days! This pic makes me #happy

  • The joy in the face of the little girl in the Minnie dress hugging Mickey sure sums up the fun and excitement that has been had by millions over the last 60 years. All awesome pics, but I hope she wins!

  • I like the candid shot from the 80s…it is the only one that is not “posed”

  • I love the photos from the ’50s and the ’60s. It was tough for me to choose which one of those two to vote for since both were great. Congrats to all the lucky people whose photos were selected. This was a fun contest and I hope it gets repeated in the future.

  • I’m rooting for the Walt one since nothing says Disneyland like a picture with a family WITH the one and only Walt Disney! Glad to see Pluto isn’t hurting for love. 3 pictures, wow!

  • Thanks for posting, was on pins and needles all day to see if I won my decade. Wish I had gotten more votes. What a great contest. I enjoyed each part of it! I hope you consider doing another! 🙂
