Hi ho, hi ho, it's back to Walt Disney World we go.
In my last WDW post, we saw the stern end of the Richard Irvine steamboat. Now we get to see it from the fronty bit (as sailors call it). Isn't it pretty? If you look carefully, you can see just a bit of the other WDW steamboat, the Admiral Joe Fowler, which was scrapped in 1980. Even as I type that sentence, the idea that it was scrapped shocks me.
Now we're in the middle of Fantasyland, and are amidst timber framed façades and tournament tents. There's Cinderella's Golden Carousel (beneath the white tent), and "It's a Small World" to our left, with the Skyway overhead. Is there anything else notable about this photo that I should know about?
I like flowers just fine, but never feel the need to take pictures of them! This patch of color is a little more informal and wild-looking than what I usually think of when it comes to Disney flowers.
Stay tuned for more Magic Kingdom images from 1975!
