Wandering in Tomorrowland

David Drake and Katherine Morse in darling costumes. Everywhere they went people were smiling and waving at them.

We were walking through Disneyland and began to notice ladies and gentlemen dressed in period clothing. They looked very nice. Suddenly, I glanced all around and it was like being on the movie set for Tomorrowland with lots of hats, heels, and poofy skirts, too. We had inadvertently visited during Dapper Days and it was like taking a time-warp back to the 1950s or 60s.

Here’s some of the best photos!

By now we really felt immersed in a story, a new one melding Disney and a snapshot of time. It was beautiful! Now, there was a dark side.

A Goth bride with a casket purse!

Some people dressed Goth and flaunted very dark, zombie-like costumes.

But the special part, for me, was seeing whole families dressed in hats and striped suits, enjoying rides and laughing together. I love the power of a good story!
