Snapshot – Disneyland Band

Snapshot – Disneyland Band

A quick moment in time from my first Disneyland trip…

Disneyland Band in Town Square

Disneyland Band in Town Square

This photo takes me back to a very specific moment, but also embodies my general feelings of Main Street.  I saw this scene on the Walt in Walt’s Footsteps tour, shortly before we toured Walt’s apartment above the Fire Station.  Seeing the Disneyland Band play in Town Square set the mood for what I was doing that day, reliving the history and place of Disneyland itself.  It also sets a mood on Main Street.  It establishes that this is an idyllic place different than what is outside the gates.  It’s nearly a scene from the Twilight Zone…a place you can forget your everyday worries and simply enjoy.
