Disneyland, October 1966 Pt. 4 & Cruella Cels

It’s Fantasyland Pt. 2 in this October 1966 series, and of course, a photo of the Castle is extremely appropriate. By now, the Disney Family Crest is visible above the entrance. Back in our Square Skyway Buckets, we see Storybook Land; Monstro is about to swallow up another boatload of guests as the Yellow Monorail appears in the distance. Admittedly, it is a little strange to see the Fantasy of Storybook Land with ultra-sleek Monorail so close by.

As we swoop in to view the rest of the Storybook sights, we see the entrance landscaping as well as a nice view of Casey Jr. and the Cinderella Castle:

3 more Storybook shots show Toad Hall (before it was unceremoniously moved to a less prominent piece of real estate courtesy of Aladdin), the Windmills, and Pinocchio’s Village:

A trip to Fantasyland wouldn’t be complete without a few characters shots, so here are Snow White & one of her Dwarves, who appears to be looking for a handout. As always, Snow White’s hair changes again to somewhat reflect the times:

As a bonus for today, here are 5 animation cels of Cruella de Vil from the collection of Alice Davis...with the cigarette intact:

Tomorrow, there’ll be more Fantasyland views, October 1966.

15 pics today... you put the rest of us to shame!

You know, if I had heard that Disney edited out Cruella's cigarette, I might have had to smash something! Enough with the editing already. Kids aren't going to smoke because Pecos Bill rolled a cigarette. It's just stupid!

Here endeth the rant! Sorry Dave!
