Mad Tea Party

The Mad Tea Party (or "Teacups" as most people call them) is one of the classic Disneyland attractions. Depending on who you are, they are either fun or barf-inducing. I happen to love them, the color, the accompanying music, lanterns overhead (at night). They don't spin much anymore, but that is because there is more gravity in 2007 than there was in 1955. Everybody knows that! This 1956 image is ultra-saturated in color, but lite in calories.

Here's a nice aerial look, taken by someone wearing a rocket pack. It's the only logical explanation. The lady exiting to the right is saying, "Oh, my aching back". A new group of guests is anxiously awaiting their turn to be dizzy or nauseous.

I like the brownie scouts in the cups in the first image.

Rather than a rocket pack, I believe the Skyway was the magical force that lifted the photographer in photo 2.

Great shots!
