As is the case with all of the Instamatic photos I have been sharing, today's examples are undated. They're still great pictures, but sometimes a date would be useful! For instance, in this first image we can see lots of neat stuff; I've always loved that lozenge-shaped Peoplemover sign. Mostly hidden behind it is the (lowered) Tomorrowland Stage; and you've got Skyway buckets (that appear to be empty), a beautiful 4-car red Monorail, and yes, pplmvr.
The next two shots appear to have been taken on a different day (who knows); over the edge of our Skyway bucket we look down on the Autopia and the Pplmvr (see what I did there?). The Pplmvr trains are sitting there, empty and still... the attraction hadn't opened yet, although it looks nearly ready.
The fact that the Pplmvr isn't up-and-running yet can help to date these to at least pre-July, 1967. Please write that down in your GDB journals, because it will be on the test. By the way... where is everybody? The park looks so empty. If this was May or June 2013, there would be thousands of people.
