Fun Fotos Tomorrowland 1966
This unique souvenir shop was located in Tomorrowland in the old Kaiser Hall of Aluminum area across from the America the Beautiful Circle Vision theater. I believe it was also located across from the Art of Animation and the Art Corner. (The current building is the exit to Buzz Lightyear.) At this shop, families would pose behind plywood cut outs featuring the Matterhorn Mountain, Jungle Cruise, Submarine Voyage or even the Dog Pound from Lady and the Tramp. A black and white Polaroid shot would be snapped and saved for eternity by the family. These are some of my favorite souvenirs. Take a close look at photo 3 and you will see elements from the cutouts used for picture taking painted on the wall besides the sign. The sign in photo 2 hung over the entrance. The pattern on the back is made from the pegboard used for the backing on the sign.
