I grew up in Southern California during the 1960’s and went to Catholic School with my brothers for 7 years. Each year on St. Patrick’s Day we were able to attend a school sponsored field trip and went to Disneyland with our lay teachers, Nuns and Priests for a day of fun.
Many things have changed today in schools – but attending Disneyland as a child with your teacher was a lot of fun. I especially remember the Nuns (ours were from Ireland, and belonged to the Sisters of Charity) riding the attractions in their habits.
I am not sure – if we had the park to ourselves, or if the general public was also allowed in; but a good time was had by all. Those were great childhood memories that I will never forget.
