Jungle Cruise without the Jungle, Disneyland 1957
Here's one from 1957 of the dock for the Jungle Cruise, looking mighty barren. Although I like the design of the current Jungle Cruise, I have to admit I admire the more kitschy theme of the past. This goes for the entire park in general (here comes my rant). I live in California; why would I want to pay to see a park that tries to recreate (pretty darn well I must admit) the real thing? The best part of going to Disneyland is getting away from it all and seeing what you CAN'T see anywhere else. C'mon, Disney: bring back the KITSCH! See more on my regular website.
