Here is an assortment of images from a lot of slides circa 1968.
We'll start with this fun one, showing a colorful Frontierland. There's lots of flowers and plenty of benches to rest on. To our right is the gazebo where the Trio Gonzalez performed - you can see a guitar sitting there waiting. In the distance is Casa de Fritos with those painted palm-frond umbrellas. I love details like the dress on the little girl to our right; those bright stripes are almost psychedelic.
Next we move a bit to the east to look at Sleeping Beauty Castle; I always like this angle, it's cool to see it so closely juxtaposed with the Matterhorn.
And finally, a view of the Mark Twain as it heads straight toward us. We're standing near a Kodak picture spot… Kodak would only remain a Disneyland sponsor for a short while longer. I believe GAF took over in 1970.
