Fantasyland June 1963

More pictures from my recent purchase, this time it is Fantasyland. First up is a view of the Mad Hatter Tea Party and in the background in the Tuna Boat with Skull Rock. Written on the reverse of the photo is Pirates Ship- Full size in water contains cafe + Beer Hall. Man stopped in way just as I snapped picture. (Yes, the photographer thought the Pirate Ship contained a Beer Hall, think how much fun that would have been if it did....)

Next up is a view of the Matterhorn, King Arthur's Carrousel and the backside of Sleeping Beauty's Castle. Looks like it was a day with good attendance. Noted on this photo is Mt. Matterhorn Sky Ride (We rode) Carrousel (Large 4 row merry go round) Castle in right side, umbrellas- sidewalk cafe.

Final image is one of my favorites, taken from Fantasyland II fast service food counter seating area. The cup in use is the nice blue and white graphic with different images for each land printed in a gold color. On the back, the photographer wrote: Dumbo the flying elephant ride Plus view of Sky Ride and sails of Pirate ship. Taken from Sidewalk Cafe.

This is way cool. Three images featuring three Fantasyland restaurants; the Pirate Ship Restaurant and both Character Foods facilities. The only thing missing is Welch's Grape Juice Bar!

The last one's great!

That last image is super. Can't imagine a better "you are there" shot.
