Today's photos are "leftuggies" - scans left over from other past lots, that somehow didn't get posted before.
This first one (from 1966) is kind of interesting taken along a walkway leading to the front gates - eventually! Darn, that is a long walk. Couldn't they have waited for a tram somewhere?
Even this far out, flowering shrubs have been planted (deadly oleander!) to soften the appearance of the parking lot and those huge electrical towers. From this great distance, only the Matterhorn, the Douglas Moonliner, and the Monorail tracks are visible.
Next we are aboard the Skyway in 1969, heading toward Tomorrowland. Those tunnels were carved by years of alpine winds and water, along with an abominable snowman or two. Notice the little conifers, placed in built-in planters up to the snow line.
