I'm getting down to the last few slides from Walt Disney World's first month of operation.
This first one was taken inside the Contemporary Hotel - it shows the huge tile mural designed by Mary Blair, and represents the Grand Canyon and all of its flora, fauna, native peoples, and history. Mary famously included a five-legged goat, though it is not visible here.
Those plastic trees are kooky!
This next photo seems to have been taken from the top of the Contemporary, looking out toward Bay Lake. You can see for miles! I am assuming that the boat is one of the ferries that brought guests to the Magic Kingdom; as far as I know those 3-story buildings were torn down to make way for the massive Bay Lake Tower - some of the most expensive rooms at the resort!
