Please chew a piece of Bazooka bubblegum as you read this post. Here are six more Donruss bubblegum cards from 1965!
Card #29: Western Mine Train crosses trestle over Bear River going through Nature's Wonderland.
I never knew it was called "Bear River"!
The same photo was used on this Fall 1960 issue of "Vacationland" magazine, and it sure looks more colorful.
Card #30: Disneyland Astrojet provides thrilling ride in Tomorrowland.
Whoever wrote these descriptions was no Hemingway.
Card #31: Indian elephants play in sacred wading pool as seen by passengers aboard Disneyland Jungle Cruise.
Card #32: Deluxe passenger train of the 1890 vintage leaves Main Street Station on the Santa Fe and Disneyland Railroad.
Card #33: Disneyland's Gonzales Trio entertain guests at Mexican Village in Frontierland.
I don't recall ever seeing the Señorita with a guitar before! I love her even more now.
Card #34: A Disneyland future attraction under construction for opening in 1967, The Haunted House.
I have heard that guests were allowed to enter the grounds of the Haunted Mansion for a brief time before the attraction opened. Or maybe these people were let in for the photo. Imagine how impressed they must have been. "If the outside looks this good, think of what the inside must be like!".
We're just over halfway through these cards!
