Disney Flashback Friday - Honeymoon Edition

I thought since yesterday was our anniversary, I would post some of our honeymoon pictures...cuz, of course, we went to Disneyland!  ...And Knott's Berry Farm, Universal Studios & Magic Mountain.  We're not Hawaii people.  Or cozy lodge in the mountains people.  Or tour of wine country people.  Nope.  We're amusement park people.  We're all about the fun!

It was August 1990. 

We had origninally planned to go to Disney World, but we ended up not having much time.  With the start of the Gulf War (Mike is in the Air Force), we weren't even sure we'd get a honeymoon.  We decided on a few days in California and we had a blast. 

These may not be the best pictures.  Just remember these were taken before digital cameras!

Here I am standing in front of Bertha Mae.  One of the Mike Fink Keel Boats.  Anybody ever ridden them?  I don't think I ever have. 

Mike in front of the Rivers of America.

Getting ready for the newer bigger version of Dumbo.

Goofy and Mike.  I'm not even going to mention those shorts.  Nope.  Not gonna do it.  (But isn't he cute?  Mike - not Goofy!)

The view from above.  I miss the skyway.

Can you see all the big hair?  (You can click on the picture to make it bigger.)  And the hot pink/orange/salmon shirts and shorts!  I KNOW for a fact GUYS wore that color too.  (Someone I know and love may or may not have had shorts this color!)
Anyway, we must have been up on the People Mover.  Anyone else remember that?

In Coke Corner checking ourselves out in the mirror.  There are those shorts again.  And look at that cute little white romper!

Here's a peek at Goofy in the Party Gras parade.

For even more Disneyland fun, check out Sarah's Disney Flashback Friday.


  1. OMG, I remember all this. I even remember going on the boat the mention too.

  2. I love the Pic's. I'm not goign to tell you how old I was cause yeah I let you figure that out. It will give you a great laugh. But I wanted to say Happy Anniversary. Miss ya Hugs.

  3. You have the best photos each week!! What a riot Mike's shorts are, and how awesome is it that you have proof that was the trend back then?1 I did a post about missing the PeopleMover today. I sure could have used that photo you posted. I miss that ride so much more then Skyway.
    I do remember the boats, and for some reason I remember riding them when really little. I don't have any photographs though.
    You are the ultimate Disney fan. I love it!

  4. Fun memories :o) Yeah, I dont know who all was in charge of fashion and and hairstyles in the 80's and early 90's! :o) We have some pretty interesting photos.

    Blessings & Aloha!

  5. Great pictures! I never did ride Mike Fink's Keel Boats, but I sure miss the Skyway! That was actually a favorite of mine!
