On the Trail of Nature's Wonderland

From a sheet of contact prints (the negatives are printed directly on to photographic paper without any enlargement) come this set featuring a ride on the Burros across Nature's Wonderland. The first three images show people being Dapper at Disneyland while riding animals.

Hey there,
Unrelated to this post, but this seems like a good place to ask!

Could you tell me anything about the Toucan and Parrot Electric Utility Show? All the knowlegde I have comes from the soundtrack, I've written what I know here:
Is there any photo material available of this showcase (or any of the original Disney showcases at the fair)?

Thanks, I always enjoy looking at your blog. I hope to visit Disneyland again sometime!

It is important to look good when riding a mule!

I never got to ride the mules, this is super great. Thanks for these "you are there" snapshots!

The pack mules were always a MUST for me as a girl. Thank you for these "you are there" photos.
Love that young woman's shirtwaist dress with the full ruffled slip. I'd say this was taken around 1960. Did they have a date?

No date on these, but I agree late 1950s or early 1960s.
