Storybook Land

From a bunch of undated slides, here are two views of Storybookland. I'll go out on a limb and say that they are from the early 60's, but who knows.

I assume that this was taken from the Skyway, looking down on (among other things) Cinderella's Castle. The "Storybookland" flowered sign is bare, presumably being replanted? And look at all of the undeveloped land in the background, including a bunch of old eucalyptus trees.

Now for a closer look at one of the boats - - "Katrina" to be specific. Wikipedia says that this is one of the 15 original boats, and one of 2 that are no longer used. Through that "natural" stone archway is a side canal where boats were repaired or probably removed from service on slow days.

The stone archway is where the boats are stored at night. It is now themed to Little Mermaid showing the underwater world of the merpeople.

They used to call it Never Never Land before the Little Mermaid refurb because they never, never took you there.


Awesome pictures, as usual!
