Tomorrowland, February 1962

Hooray for these classic shots of Tomorrowand! That's the place for me. Check out this beautiful image looking across the lagoon towards the Monorail, Skyway, and even the Rocket to the Moon (which would soon be repainted with its Douglas markings). Who wouldn't want to be transported to this scene? You might want to bring a jacket though, it could get chilly at night.

From the same lot is this exciting picture of a Tomorrowland full of vitality and movement. Wheee-doggies, I'd give my prehensile tail to be there!

my favorite monorail, Yellow

vintage signage of The Yacht Bar (which we never see enough of), a bit of the Space Bar sign and Submarine Voyage sign, which is not in a whole lot of pics because its up high in the sky

It is the place of fascinating future design, of promise and hope. It is the "TOMORROWLAND" of my childhood. These pics are incredible. Thanks Major. Again you have managed to take me back to a great time in my life, Richard.

These are both awesome pics! Have to admit that if the skyway were still in operation I'd have to go it alone...hubby is afraid of heights and would never get on something like that, lol! He has issues with Soarin'!
