March 1956 Series: The Big Finish
Quite a few slides to post for the rowsing March 1956 finish! Crossing through Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, you’ll notice a poster on the left that shows a map of only Fantasyland (yes, detail shot does follow!). Again, doncha’ love the outfits? People actually getting dressed up for a day at Disneyland? Purty cool!
Once through the Castle, we get a few views of the Carrousel (get those dimes out!), Teacups (where is everybody?), and the often photographed Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship. This Chicken of the Sea pics is one of my favorites; love the lady on the left covering her face and the lady pointing on the right (“Hey Madge—look, that man has a camera!”)
If Pirates ships aren’t your bag, you can always wander over to Frontierland for a ride on the Mark Twain. At the dock, you can also view the Golden Horseshoe saloon.
It’s interesting to compare the same view with today. My, how you’ve grown!
For a little more rustic boat trip, you can saunter back to Adventureland and take a ride on the Jungle Cruise.
And that’s it for a few days, folks. Hope you enjoyed your trip to March 1956. I’ve got some more good stuff coming up next week.FOR MATTERHORN: Here’s the requested detail shot of the flag:
