While touring the Archives exhibit I had the pleasure of meeting Ron and David DeFore, sons of actor Don DeFore. They were so nice and friendly. When I shared how much I enjoy their dad in RAMROD (1947) they exclaimed "You're a real fan!"
The next day Ron and David did an hour-long presentation on their Dad's 1957-1961 Frontierland restaurant, Don DeFore's Silver Banjo Barbecue. More on that in a future post!

One of my favorite things in the exhibit was learning that actor Harold Lloyd took a number of 3D photographs of the park in 1955, the year it opened. The photos were displayed on a monitor and were absolutely fascinating!
Maps, brochures, ticket books, and more!
And so the exhibit comes to an end...
...but as Walt said, Disneyland will never be finished!
