Today's "unrejected" rejects are not very inspiring (which is why they were rejected in the first place), but they're better than nothing!
This first one is from January 5, 1957, and we're looking across the river toward Tom Sawyer Island and Fort Wilderness, with a canoe gliding over the water. The shadows are very dark, but a Keelboat can be seen at rest, with a barely-visible Fowler's Harbor behind it. I wonder if the photographer had just left the Indian Village (which closed at dusk) and snapped this shot while walking back through Frontierland?
Here's a very murky shot of a Keelboat from July, 1958. It's really zipping along! I always love it when the passengers on the lower level decided to lean (or sit) outside of the boat - presumably it was OK with the cast members. I think the folks in the lower right are on one of the rafts to the Island, but have no idea what that very thick bundle of ropes is from.
