Rocket to the Moon, 1958

Here's a great photo of the Rocket to the Moon...I never get tired of looking at this attraction! And as an added bonus, the high-angle views taken from the Skyway allow a look at the back stage areas, as well as the undeveloped farmland that surrounded the park in those days.

if you look to the right of the rocket, you can see what I believe is the Dominguez ranch house. The Dominguez family owned and lived on 10 acres of orange grove-covered property, which was purchased by Walt Disney in 1954. Check out the latest issue of The E-Ticket for the interesting details!

Great image and an unusual angle. Most shots are taken from the front and do not show backstage. You are correct that is the old administration house.
