More Fantasyland Bruce Bushman Drawings

Fantastic vintage publicity stills featuring Bruce Bushman art for Fantasyland attractions. First off are two montages of drawings for the various rides and ride vehicles.

And a nice overall layout for Fantasyland as it was originally designed.

These are so fascinating to me. In the second picture, upper right panel, what was that supposed to be? Looks like "El Bumpo" from Magic Mountain.

The overall picture sure has a lot to look at! "Alice in Wonderland", Lilliputian Land" Seems like they ended up using less space than these plans suggest. Great stuff, thanks!

I've never seen that overall layout for Fantasyland before.

These are great early concepts, and of course some were used for the set of "concept postcards". The teacups ride looks So different in his layout, I kind of wish we had gotten that giant Caterpillar, Cheshire Cat, and the rest.
