Art of Animation and The Art Corner 1966

In my years of looking at photographs and collecting items, I have never seen the entrance to the Art of Animation display that was in Tomorrowland. It appears that the Animation building first in Florida and in California mimic the entrance with the curve and the painting of characters on the wall. I had also thought the exhibit was free, but the ticket sign says a B ticket (not even an A ticket!) The third image is of outside the Art Corner. If you look closely, you can see inside the store and the streets of Paris theming. I think the ladies are looking at their animation cels and thinking, hmmm should I buy more...nah, the store will still be here many years from now.

Wow, these are amazing! I have never seen photos of the exterior of the Art of Animation exhibit before. Look, there's Humphrey Bear!

Now if only we can get some interiors of the Art Corner. There is that rare postcard, but I'd love to see more.
