King of the Wild Frontier: 1963

King of the Wild Frontier: 1963

Entrance to Frontierland, August 1963. Disneyland was my favorite place in the whole world even before I ever got there. Over the course of several trips starting in 1960, I took hundreds of color slides, but apparently this Kodachrome is the only photo actually showing me there. The first one who spots me gets a free E ticket for the Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland.

And the winner is...

Whilst reviewing my new gallery here, I saw this and realized I never awarded the prize, which goes to Ray B. The Mine Train tickets are gone, unfortunately, but as a consolation prize you can take a tour of the Monsanto House of the Future. (Not my pic.)

I'll take a crack at it

How 'bout the ca. 17-year-old, directly under the "L" in the Frontierland sign, almost as if leaning against the flagpole; we see the left side of your face, as you're looking to the right (and perhaps up a bit).


You're boy with a crew cut standing right behind the guy in the pink shirt.

I want that ticket

Are you kidding. Now that we know you, there is no doubt that you must be the guy in pink shirt, looking cool to the right.
