Here is a pair of beautiful photos from the mid-1960's, taken while waiting to board the Tomorrowland Autopia. The colorful fiberglass Mark VII vehicles were introduced in 1967, and I would bet dollars to doughnuts that these photos were taken that very year. Today I am feeling partial to the yellow cars! Notice the Monorail pulling into the station in the background.
Even if there wasn't a Christmas star atop the Matterhorn, I might have guessed that these pictures were taken sometime during the winter months. There's something about the blue sky and the quality of the sunlight. And the fact that the people are wearing coats and sweaters!
