Here are a few more photos from an 8 month-old Walt Disney World. You won't see any evidence of construction or anything exciting like that, but hopefully they are worth a look anyway.
In Fantasyland, Cinderella's Golden Carrousel is an authentic 94 year-old merry-go-round originally built by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company in 1917. It has 90 horses - and every horse is unique! Just like each of you, faithful readers. For reasons that aren't even worth going into, it was clunkily renamed "Prince Charming Regal Carrousel" in June of 2010.
Florida's Frontierland is looking awfully bare in this photo. I can only imagine what it must look like today after 40 years of growth. The sternwheeler named after Admiral Joe Fowler is churning the waters; does anybody know if it is basically the same in size as the Mark Twain in Disneyland? I learned (via Wikipedia) that a second sternwheeler, the Richard F. Irvine, was added in 1973; and in 1980, the Admiral Fowler, somehow suffering damage during refurbishment, was scrapped! Sacre bleu!
Stay tuned! Just a few more left in this lot.
