We've seen 31 photos from this lot of early-70's Walt Disney World pix… today I am sharing the last four.
I like this first shot of Fantasyland… it looks so familiar; like Disneyland, only a whole lot bigger and fancier. I think that tall tower is part of the building that houses "It's a Small World". The Skyway was still going strong (as it would until 1999). The Carousel is to our right, and the Mickey Mouse Revue is to our left (the red/pink awning).
The Haunted Mansion looks so solid and grand - although curiously isolated in this angle at least. Some sort of landscaping is being done in the foreground. Either that or bodies are being disturbed.
From somewhere near Cinderella's Castle, we look past a manicured lawn and wide moat (it's like a golf course with a water hazard) toward the buildings at the "hub" end of Main Street. What a pretty picture.
And what better way to end things than with this nice view of one of the Nautiluses (Nautili?) looking like a prehistoric, ocean-dwelling reptile. I still can't believe that this attraction is gone.
That's the last of these, but don't worry, I have more WDW pictures for you!
