LOVE it. This makes me nostalgic for the old parking and entrance. I do miss being able to park right in front of the gates...but I wouldn't trade the new stuff for it. - JinglePoe  289.9 #975 8:28PM
It's a fair trade - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 8:39PM

Evergone must have been rich in the 50's... they all had Classic cars... 😜 - BambooMike  133.8 #2982 2:32PM
What an awesome photo! Thanks for sharing! =) - MrsHatbox  208.6 #1889 2:35PM
My condolences for your Husbands unfortunate accident... 😜 - BambooMike  133.8 #2982 2:44PM
What happened?? - PrinceTeaJack  934.6 #198 2:51PM
From what I've heard Mr. Hatbox worked in the Haunted Masion when it first opened, but was relieved of his position soon after due to technical issues. I guess he was "a head" of his time... It's my attempt at a Hatbox ghost joke... πŸ˜” - BambooMike  133.8 #2982 3:06PM
Haha Thanks! =P - MrsHatbox  208.6 #1889 4:16PM
😁 - BambooMike  133.8 #2982 4:27PM
Love the cars - MickeyMouse0312  56.4 #4528 2:37PM
How awsome would it be to park that close still? Oh well times change. The walk is totally worth it! - Disneymomab  34.0 #5629 2:45PM
Woooooow! I don't think I ever saw this parking (or if I did I don't remember)... That is an awesome photo! I wish I could park that close, but I'm very grateful for DCA - SPandEvLover  4531.8 #29 3:06PM
I remember having the privilege of being a premium passholder and parking at the front in preferred parking. Those were the days! - Plutopia  211.2 #1860 4:37PM
I LOVE this pic! Thank you for sharing Scooter Mike! I just adore classic cars! If gas wasn't so darn expensive I'd be driving one as my everyday driver! - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 4:41PM
I used to drive classic cars regularly. Now I have my daughter and drive a modern car. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 4:45PM
Isn't it weird that they didn't have seatbelts?! Lol we have a chevy biscayne sitting in our driveway right now but hardly drive it because of the kids. - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 5:29PM
I put seatbelts in my 1959 Edsel when I had the interior redone. My other classics don't have them. They were not required until 1968. Old cars are grandfathered. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 5:52PM
Cool picture! Didn't CM park to the right of the entrance? - snappy  438.4 #498 5:13PM
Yes, we did! - Gia  802.0 #231 5:26PM
