Here are the last four Walt Disney World pictures from my December 1971 batch.
Awwww yeeeeaaaahhh! The amazing steampunk Nautilus submarines at The Magic Kingdom's "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" attraction were hella cool. While I love the history of Disneyland's subs, I would not have complained if we had inherited the Florida subs after the 1994 closure. No such luck.
Fantasyland was neat in its way, though the façade of "It's a Small World" is disappointing. I'm sure it was a money issue, but that tented entrance almost gets lost among the surrounding architectural detail.
Another photo of IASW, from the other side. One advantage is that the Florida guests could wait in a shady queue, away from Florida's often-intense sunshine. Meanwhile.... Skyway!
And finally, a picture of Main Street Station, possibly taken from the Monorail Station (?). One of the railroad trains can be seen... compared to Disneyland's trains, that thing looks huge. It just goes on and on!
I'll have more vintage WDW for you in the future!
