For some reason, several of the images in an otherwise very nice lot from October 1967 are rather dark and murky. Did somebody reverse the polarity of some tachyons? Was it a gypsy curse? Was Venus transiting the sun? Could this be the massive flea infestation of '67?
Anyway, I am not going on any of those Fantasyland rides. Way too dark and creepy. You just know there are ne'er do wells loitering in the shadows. Normally this is such a happy land, so it feels extra gloomy.
New Orleans Square... maybe a storm's a-brewin'. Some of the haunted ambiance leaked out of the yet-to-open Haunted Mansion, and hundreds of push brooms were needed to sweep it all back.
As a rule I would want to be heading in towards Tomorrowland, but in this case I am glad that we are heading away from it. Moon dust everywhere. Did you know that the moon smells like gunpowder? It's true! Read about it here. See what you learn when you least expect it?
