Delving back into a box of previously rejected slides (rejected because they had turned magenta), I spent some quality time with Photoshop in an attempt to restore today's offerings.
The Bertha Mae keel boat is featured in this first photo, as it glides past Fort Wilderness on Tom Sawyer Island. The island looks very raw in '56. Check out the guy in blue who has climbed out onto the side of the boat for a better view; I'm pretty surprised that he was allowed to stay there!
Over near Sleeping Beauty Castle, we can see that the low fencing doesn't seem to be keeping guests off of the grass. Any idea what that sign was for to our left? All I can see is "...ARK". Obviously the sign had something to do with an aardvark, that much is clear. Notice that modest Christmas decorations can be seen on the castle.
