While today's slides are stamped "August 1963", they must have been sitting in a drawer for a long time before mom or dad took them over to the Photomat. The Moonliner lost its TWA sponsorship in 1961, for crying out loud. But no matter, it's a great photo of one of my favorite features in vintage Tomorrowland! The outside is so great that I hardly even need to go inside. Not that I'm scared. I just don't feel like it. The show building is made up of various geometric shapes; spheres, truncated cones, and possibly even a dodecahedron. (OK, I lied, there is no dodecahedron).
And who doesn't love a nice look at Monorail Blue as it swoops over the Submarine Lagoon? If only it played ice cream truck music as it moved, everything would be perfect.
