Back in 1987, lucky guests might wander through Sleeping Beauty Castle and find this pointy-hatted brass band playing in the courtyard. They are so tired of people yelling out requests for their favorite medieval hits. "Whoo! Play 'The Laily Worm and the Machrel of the Sea!' WHOO!". "No, play 'The Braes o' Yarrow!". "Me lady wants to hear 'Riddles Wisely Expounded'!". Imagine how bad they'd be if booze was served.
Over at the Mad Tea Party, Stephen Spielberg sits waiting for his thrilling ride in a teacup. He sure loves those caps from aircraft carriers. Overhead, we see the Skyway (this is kind of an unusual angle), and those paper lanterns that were added in 1983. They actually look like they are made of some sort of paper in this photo, albeit very faded. Nowadays they are more colorful and look to be made of cast resin or something. Seeing them at night is one of my favorite sights!
