Today I am re-sharing some nice photos of Fantasyland! Both of these were originally posted back in 2007.
This first picture (from 1962) is possibly my favorite look at one of the wonderful caterpillar vehicles from the "Alice in Wonderland" dark ride. All of the angles formed by the giant leaves (actually, they're normal-sized, we're small) and the track make for a dynamic composition, and the colors (orange caterpiggle! blue blue sky!) look so great.
This photo (circa 1964) was taken from the Skyway, and the photographer lucked out (or was he/she just that good??) by capturing a Matterhorn bobsled just as it emerged from one of the tunnels. It's in focus and everything! Also, to the left you can see the auras from two ghosts. Some say that on a dark night, the spirits of two construction workers (who fell to their deaths during the building of the Matterhorn - it was hushed up) can still be seen wandering the track.
