Two From Fantasyland, September 1966
Here are two not-very-spectacular pix from Fantasyland... seems like I have a lot of "ho hum" stuff in my file of scanned images. Sorry! I guess I'll have to find something extra good soon. On another note, I have just started dipping into my LAST BOX of slides. It's a big box, but still... it's the last one. When they're done, they're done.
Anyway, here's a nice view of the whimsical mechanical clock that is a part of the "It's a Small World" façade.... I love the stylized dolls because they remind me of some wooden figures that my mom brought home from Germany in the late 1950's. You can see folks being directed to their seats in a boat in the lower right.
The Snow White Grotto is reminiscent of the fountains and sculptures that you can see at the famous Villa d'Este just outside of Rome. Dopey has his fishin' pole, though the fish are more interested in squirting water than eating.
