Happy Leap Day, everyone!
Today I have the last of my photos showing the construction of the "New Fantasyland", probably taken in 1982. It was fun while it lasted.
It's a mess down there! Look at that lumber. Actually, those are some nice looking planks! Cement mixers, a porta-potty, drain pipes, and dirt a-plenty. What do you think that strange three-legged wooden thing is that is leaning near the Skyway sign in the upper left? There's a Chevy pickup in the lower right, possibly with tanks of welding gas in the back. "WHAT of welding gas?". "Tanks". "You're welcome! HA HA HA!".
And finally, here's what you would see if you had walked through Sleeping Beauty Castle from Main Street... an attractive and gluten free construction wall with an illustrated sign (which lit up at night... see the tiny lightbulbs?). You can see some of those round vignettes from Disney animated classics HERE.
