I have a small batch of color snapshots taken only two months after Walt Disney World opened. They're not spectacular, but I still think that they are kind of fun.
I don't think it's too much of a stretch to surmise that this guy is somewhere near the Polynesian resort, with that thatch-roofed party boat and the fearsome carved tiki head (I'll bet that was provided by Oceanic Arts in Whittier, CA!) that appears to be part of the prow.
In the background things still look pretty Polynesian, so I'm guessing that this is not too far from wherever the first photo was shot. Seeing that Monorail track reminds me of my misconception that visitors to WDW would be able to travel anywhere via Monorail. I later learned that, for the most part, guests would be more likely to take a bus. Which is a big letdown.
Anyway, I can't ignore Goofy, who is getting pretty fresh with that nice lady! Goofy just likes everybody. To our right is Pluto, and I love his body language as he regards that tiny child.
"Iris, you have to take a picture! Here, use my camera". This was in the days before everyone took 15 selfies a day.
