Windows to the Past: Mrs. Claus' Candy Kitchen

This official Walt Disney World publicity photo dates from the late 1970s, and features a float from the annual holiday parade at the Magic Kingdom.  Mrs. Claus can be seen sitting outside of her Candy Kitchen; Chip and Dale accompany her, standing amidst giant candy canes and lollipops.  It appears that cast members were lax in not speaking to the two individuals who had climbed the lamppost for a better view.
