Fort & Monorail, 1972

Today I've got two fun images from 1972, starting with this photo taken inside Fort Wilderness on Tom Sawyer Island. I like the way the drinking fountain was combined with the well. You could quench your thirst, and maybe throw a penny in and make a wish too. Or throw your leftover popcorn.


And here's a great picture looking down on the bubble-topped Monorail from the Peoplemover track. An unusual perspective with some pretty cool stuff!

I always loved the way the "classic" Tomorrowland of 67 had attractions that interacted with each other. The Peoplemover/Monorail tracks are interwoven is the perfect example, and much of the enjoyment provided by these rides was simply the opportunity to sit back and look at all the neat stuff at Disneyland go by.

(top one) "Sally. Honey, yes: would you - yes, would you get a, get a cast member please. Billy Jo's gone down the well a little ways."

And spajadigit's right the second one rocks! Energy and serenity at the same time too. :)
