Here are two terrific vintage snapshots of Tomorrowland, probably from the late 1960's.
Crowds are pretty heavy in this first shot, with the Carousel of Progress mostly out-of-frame to our right, and the entrance to the Autopia mostly out-of-frame to our left. The Skyway station is almost dead ahead, and of course the wonderful Peoplemover glides silently overhead. Because this is a photo and has no sound.
I'm not sure if this was taken on the same day as the previous image, but it is possible; just a pivot to the right and there's the Carousel of Progress again; loads of folks are waiting to get in, while others are emerging from the top level (where the amazing Progress City model could be seen); guests had to walk down that inclined ramp which afforded some nice elevated views.
