Next up is one of my favorite type of shots, people having lunch at a theme park. The striped umbrellas are a requirement for eating locations at any amusement park. I am not sure what the outfits are that the girls are wearing.
Final image may not be Marineland, as it may be the Los Angeles Zoo. I do like the interior of this greenhouse with the vertical lines of the frame and glass.
Next image is another attraction found on the Rivers of America, the stage on Tom Sawyer's Island. And in the background is the mighty sailing ship Columbia. This picture brings me back to the good old Disneyland when I started collecting.
Moving east to the other side of the park, a great image of the classic 1967 entrance to Tomorrowland. Notice how everything is framed to the vertical draw of the Rocket Jets.
Next up is a quick shot of the elephant bathing pool. You can see a couple of the younger elephants and a glimpse of the matriarch taking her shower.
The best image of the group is this one of Ganesha on the shores of the Jungle River Cruise. The statue was originally out in the open but has now been moved to the ancient Cambodian Shrine, made by ancient Cambodian shriners.
Next up is a shot of the iconic entrance to the park. The bubbles leading to the sea horses on top of the structure is a great design touch. In the background you can see how close the park was to residential apartments and the city of Santa Monica.
The second image is from the 35th Anniversary and features the Magical Dream Machine. Some fantastic prizes were given away including new 1990 Geo's.
Next up is a shot taken from a Monorail heading towards the Disneyland Hotel passing by the Tomorrowland Skyway terminal. Once again the mashup of the attractions is something I miss.
Last image is from the cables for the Skyway above Fantasyland. The fairly new Dumbo is shining brightly and the umbrellas add a nice touch of color to the image.
Next up is a view of the Plaza Inn. The Inn appears not to be very crowded. I believe the Inn was still open and serving food during this time period. Check out the old outdoor vending cart and the infamous "Yellows" costume.
A couple of images featuring the classic 1967 Tomorrowland. First up is a nice long shot view of the Rocket Jets with the Peoplemover load platform under the attraction.
Final image for today is this great shot of the entrance to Tomorrowland with the Peoplemover and the sweeping spires of the Circlevision 360 building and in the background the peak of the Matterhorn.
Next up is a nice shot of the boardwalk in front of the Land and Assay office. Note the boys now are holding toy rifles.
Final image shows two of the gun fighters standing in front of the Mine. The mine in later years was very kitsch with fantastic wax figures including Alfred Packer the Colorado Cannibal.
These images are from the mid-1960s when the park was in its prime. The first image shows the entrance to the park.
One of the attractions at the park was the stagecoach which would run up and down the dusty main street.
The next publicity shot is of the various versions of Mickey and Minnie throughout the years. The first feature the costumes borrowed from Ice Capades, then the first in house costumes, to the classic Mickey now seen at the parks.
The next image is a great shot of Monorail Red in front of the Matterhorn. In my humble opinion, there is no bad shot of the Matterhorn.
Last image is of the Indian War canoes from the Mark Twain with Tom Sawyer's Island in the background. I just want to step into this image and enjoy the attraction.
Once again thanks to the fan, reader and friend of this blog who sent me these wonderful images.
Next up is a shot of the Tuna Pirate ship with the tropical setting for Skull Rock and dining area in the background.
First up is the iconic castle image.
A busy day on Main Street with some groovy fashions and all the classic storefronts in place.
Final image is a great view of the three crocodiles waiting for a hand out. Picture was taken from the Swiss Family Treehouse.
A publicity shot of Michael doing what he did best, dance and sing.
The rest of the week I will be showing some neat 1967 Disneyland images from one the readers of the blog.
