Fantasyland, October 1969

Today we're hangin' out in Fantasyland, 1969. But we're not going to get very far away from the castle! I have issues.

You say you are thinking about heading over to be shrunk by the Mighty Microscope? Well, you can take a shortcut through this tunnel. I sure would love to have one of those trash cans!


Or maybe you'd rather go and watch the "Golden Horseshoe Revue". Lucky you, there's a shortcut to Frontierland as well! I'll meet you back here in an hour.


And lastly, just because I had it scanned, here's a look at the upper facade of Merlin's Magic Shop. With its hand-hewn timbers, leaded glass windows, rough plaster, and wood shingles, it looks like it's right out of fairy-tale France.

Great Fantasyland pics; it's too bad that style of trash can is no more.

Ahhh the memories of ‘scooting’ through those two tunnels, late at night to catch yet one more ride. Good pictures; thanks.

Oh man! Why couldn't he have gone into the walk thru to take pictures???

There just HAVE to be photos of it taken by someone somewhere. Why don't you guys have them???

ARRRRGHHHH!

Heh. My first thought was, "Chris sure would have liked them to go inside the walk-through!"

Great collection. It's the off-beat photos, the ones that reveal a small, but memorable part of the park, that always get me the most.

Thank you so much for posting these - these little "secret" tunnels really made me feel so, so, special. Great comment about sneaking off for just one more ride!
I wish there was some way to bottle up / put in a pill that feeling.
