Backstage, Fantasyland



I know, this is a fairly ugly photo as far as vintage Disneyland images go. Mostly you get a look at the rooftop over some of the Fantasyland dark rides. So why, of all things, would I post this one? Only for the little detail out behind the Peter Pan attraction. Look at the Pirate Ship unceremoniously parked by a dumpster...hey, if they don't want it, I'll take it off of their hands! I'm kind of fascinated by the piles of moldings and other stuff, I would definitely go dumpster-diving here.

There are some construction walls in the lower left hand corner, presumably in preparation for the building of the Matterhorn. You can even see the top of some sort of earth mover and some caterpillar vehicle tracks.

Even though I worked there as a college student, backstage Disneyland photos still fascinate me!

Maybe it could be the beginning of the construction for the Alice in Wonderland Ride....
