Vintage: Me and my sister on old school flying saucers around 1964. I think it was about where Captain Eo is now. Notice the sweet bomber jacket!

I love the girl sittng on the railing, I guess safety wasn't as strict back then 😜 - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #26 6:07PM
I was thinking the same thing ;) - ShariRenee  8577.7 #9 6:13PM
But she has a cute sweater on so it's ok!! πŸ˜‰ - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 6:18PM
Ahaha! Good catch! ;) Current CM training: "what is wrong with this picture??" - aphboomwha  137.6 #2925 7:00PM
Awesome, CM is right behind her! - ShariRenee  8577.7 #9 9:19PM
Very clear pic for being almost 50 yrs old. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 5:32PM
And in color! - Fantasmicfan1  1538.2 #110 5:35PM
Dad was a photographer, he took a lot of great shots. - CobbPR  7283.3 #12 6:01PM
We do something here called "Throwback Thursday". If you have more of your dad's photos you could share, please post them on Thursday. We'd love to see them! - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 6:05PM
I thought it was tormorrow? - GrumpyPirateDad  1936.2 #86 11:17PM
This is an amazing picture and piece of Disneyland history. Thank you for sharing. - LaPearleNoir  1789.7 #94 9:35PM
Pretty much the best picture of this I've seen!! - Linzee  1188.8 #146 5:37PM
That's what I thought when I saw it. Every other pic I have seen of this attraction was grainy and not sharp - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 5:44PM
I realized the main reason the pictures he took have stayed sharp is they are all slides (and a few stereo ones, too). I'll get to dad in the next few weeks and scan more of his. I also have a few old things I'll take shots of for a Thursday. Park maps from the mid sixties are pretty neat. - CobbPR  7283.3 #12 6:51PM
I'd love to see those! ^ - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #211 6:54PM
Now this is the kind of non live picture I like to see! Awesome! - ShariRenee  8577.7 #9 5:40PM
Oh and lovin the bomber jacket! - ShariRenee  8577.7 #9 5:44PM
I was zooming in on all the clothes too! So cool. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1570.2 #107 5:50PM
Now that's amazing to have and post. - Westcoast  174.6 #2324 5:41PM
Thank you for sharing. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1570.2 #107 5:43PM
The Flying Saucers is where Space Mountain is now - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 5:44PM
Didn't know that! - KylaShea  632.7 #319 6:55PM
I think it needs beach balls - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 5:45PM
Or Space Balls? - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 5:57PM
Planets? - bluefairy  643.8 #313 6:57PM
It did have balloons and beach balls for the taping of "The Wonderful World of Color". That scene from that show is shown most of the time when talking about the attraction - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 7:48PM
I love this pic!!!! You two look like you're having a blast!!! Sweet jacket and I love her sandals!! - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 5:51PM
Old school! - VfxGenie  1556.7 #109 5:54PM
What Magical Memories! - Disneymother  225.3 #1661 6:03PM
This is awesome! - MinnieMousewife  914.1 #201 6:18PM
It'd be awesome if you had a collage of these photos! I'm sure they're amazing :) - KylaShea  632.7 #319 6:31PM
I remember this ride, barely! Awesome pic! I only have b/w pics from the good old days. - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 7:00PM
Cool! That kind of looks like Luigi's Flying Tires in DCA haha - LennaH  159.7 #2571 7:21PM
Yup was going to say the same thing...even the "lean" is the same. Everything old is now new! - aphboomwha  137.6 #2925 9:53PM
Adorable pic. Look like you have to work like on LFT. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - dimplesdanie  1236.9 #138 7:35PM
that queue looks so empty. you can kinda see the lines in luigi's headed in this direction. i wonder how long luigi's will last. - toph  2418.2 #60 7:45PM
I completely agree! - GrimGrinningAmanda  666.9 #303 8:15PM
Thank you for sharing, I look forward to seeing your other pictures. - MonLuvsDisney  192.1 #2088 9:09PM
I like the guy in the back with his head in his hands. Great pic thanks for sharing! - celsing  310.5 #854 9:21PM
Flying Saucers!!!! This was my favorite ride when I was a kid!! Thanks for the nice photo & great memory!! - debbiev  1170.7 #152 10:05PM
Awesome! I've never seen anyone (other than ads) riding them!) - TinkerSchelle  1981.1 #82 11:13PM
