I scanned some more old slides from the Magic Kingdom - and even discarded several scans as being too horrible for one reason or another. But today's images made the cut! This makes a nice followup for Ken Martinez's post from Monday.
Of course this one had to be included - who doesn't love a view of the beautiful turquoise lagoon from the "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" attraction? I just want to jump in and splash around. I like the planters with the built-in seating (much like the New Tomorrowland in Anaheim), and all of the flowers and tropical plants. I think we can see some of the 20K's show building just past the rocks, but I don't know what the stuff is in the upper left. Monorail tracks and...?
Here's another unusual view - a somewhat strange angle looking at Cinderella Castle. Part of that hillside looks like it sheared away after a heavy rain. Is that retaining wall a temporary structure? Note the Mad Tea Party without the covering that would be added later.
Any idea what all the people at the bottom of the photo are looking at?
There's good old Pluto, Mickey's faithful pup. His plush fur makes him very huggable! That kid totally stole my look - I still wear a bucket hat everywhere, as well as my mom's sunglasses. I am a bit jealous of that Pepsi shirt, though.
