Dumbo Entrance, July 1963

This colorful entrance/ticket booth for the Dumbo attraction fits in with the "medieval faire" theme of Fantasyland 1963, and yet it feels "circusy" too. The structure became unnecessary with the introduction of ticket books in late no longer had to buy a ticket for each individual ride.

I like this photo, lots of activity and a bright sunshiny summer day! I also like the souvenir hat that the kid near the middle of the photo is wearing.

Great image of this structure. I have always like the architecture of the Dumbo and Casey Junior structures. One of my favorite pieces that was released by Disney Shopping for the fiftieth was the Casey Junior Station.
