Here are some more nice vintage snapshots from over 40 years ago!
This first one is one of my favorites, taken at the entrance to the New Tomorrowland. The light of the setting sun certainly adds beauty to an already beautiful scene. This version of Tomorrowland never felt sterile, in spite of its abundance of white and shining metal surfaces; I'm sure the swirling flower beds and palm trees helped a lot. I love the Peoplemover heading down into the tunnel to our left; the concept of being able to peek in at many Tomorrowland attractions while aboard the Peoplemover was a stroke of genius.
There's Snow White and one of the seven dwarfs (Sleepy? Bashful?), standing at the site where the Monsanto Home of the Future used to be. As you can see, the attractive waterfalls and pools remained - for many years, in fact. I wonder what goodies could be had at the souvenir stand in the distance?
