A different look at Disneyland’s Ambassador for 1965

Say hello to Disneyland’s Ambassador for 1965 Julie Reihm as she's off to another exciting destination or returning from one. Check out Julie over at Stuff from the Park (link), she getting ready for another flight there too! In the “Where are they now?” department, here's an interview with Julie from 2008 (link).

The back of Julie’s press photo reveals she is “Miss Disneylandia”. The photo is dated the January 24, 1965.

Well I bet you’ve never seen Julie like this before? If you like to play with paper dolls (who doesn't?) you can download a high resolution scan here (33mb .tif file). Print it, cut it and have fun.

The Paper doll is on the back side of this one page article from an unknown (don’t’ you hate that?) magazine dated August 1965. "Miss Disneyland-off to far places".

That paperdoll thing is fantastic! Did they do that for all of the Ambassadors?

Through the magic of Wikipedia, I can now tell you that "La Prensa" is the name of about a zillion Spanish language news papers. So unless there's something local about the month abbreviation "ENE", we may never know where the photo came from.

As for the mystery mag.. notice the copyright is to (C)W D. not WDP.

Fantastic, and I have always wished that somebody would interview some of those early ambassadors. I expected the "E-Ticket" magazine to do it someday! Thanks for the link to the Julie Reihm interview - and the paper doll graphics are awesome!
