It's time for some more Walt Dizzy World! Let's start with this nice photo of Winnie the Pooh just before his doomed run for President (remember "Hunnygate"?). I've always liked this version of Pooh, with the Hunny jar (and bee) atop his head. Everybody else looks like extras in a very special episode the The Brady Bunch.
In the distance is "It's a Small World"; To our left is the Troubadour Tavern (sponsored by Welch's Grape Juice). Does anybody know what attraction is to our extreme left?
Next, we're aboard the Skyway looking down upon Cinderella's Golden Carrousel. A group of sailors (foreign sailors?) wanders past, probably heading to the "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" attraction! Space Mountain looms in the distance, though it wouldn't open until January of 1975. Also visible is the Contemporary Resort.
We've seen this topiary swan before... it's not so interesting to me, but apparently people loved it. Did it have anything to do with the Swan Boats?
