Happy #TBT Thursday!! Found this photo of the entrance approaching the park's 45th anniversary celebration (the flowers are still a little sparse πŸ˜‚). Were you there? Do you remember if the park does this for their anniversary celebrations? I can't remember if they did for the Diamond one. The bottom pic is a closeup of the lamppost decoration.

I'm pretty sure I wasn't there. Neat that they did though.  - sultan  463.5 #544 3:11PM

Who would have known how that trip would change my life? It sparked my love of all things Disney, and a deep desire to learn more about this place that Walt had built. It led me to this great family and I am forever grateful.
