Fantasyland, Late 60's

Here are a few scans from a group of slides that I have delved into previously. A long time ago, actually! I'm pretty sure that these haven't been seen on GDB before, but if I'm wrong, please don't sue me.

Dad (or maybe Grandpa?) is trying to hide his terror at the prospect of riding a flying elephant. Ever since that childhood circus incident (in which he was nearly eaten by an elephant), he's dreaded this day. But he'll do anything for li'l Skeeter. (If I had a boy, I'd name him Skeeter).

Skeeter hails us with a hearty "Ahoy, matey!" just before he attempts to fly. I have no idea how that worked out. The two hipsters to our left are amazed by something. But WHAT?

wow, getting to see some of the beautiful details of the Pirate Ship. we don't often have this chance. Major, you have really been outdoing yourself lately. still not seeing what you meant to the effect that you didnt have much good left to share!

I think the hipsters there are seeing the lime green Dumbo taking off into the wild blue yonder. that would definitely surprise ME!

excellent pics today!!

WOW!!!!! Love seeing the details of the ship - it's like I'm standing on the deck looking up!

The hipsters just found out the galley serves yummy Meatball Sandwiches. Well, that was *my* reaction...

Man, I'm a bit concerned about Skeeter's fate!

Wow, look at the millwork on that ship. It's a work of art all on it's own.

Dumbo's cool too.

I knew a guy named skeeter. 'Nuff said.
