Check out this beautiful view of the New Tomorrowland, from the summer of 1968! I think this picture was taken from the upper level of the Carousel of Progress building. Folks are enjoying their burgers and fries (and Coca Cola) at the Tomorrowland Terrace, while the yellow Monorail glides above them. The stage in the foreground is in its "down" position, but if we're lucky, Sunshine Balloon will play a bit later.
A new stage has appeared next to "Flight to the Moon", and it's full of squeaky-clean young folks. It's the "Kids of the Kingdom"! They sing groovy songs with positive messages, unlike those long-haired hippies you see everywhere. Notice the construction going on next to the little ticket booth below... any idea what that was for?
