Disneyland 1956, The Semi-Grand Finale

Today’s Trio rounds out this fabulous 1956 series, beginning with an Adventureland/Frontierland/New Orleans Street photo taken from the bridge that I believe would have gone to the original Indian Village location. This is approximately where the Treehouse is currently located. While in Adventureland, we have a Jungle Cruise dock area photo, showing the not-so-often photographed Mekong Maiden in the foreground:

The last one for this series is a lackluster view of Tomorrowland, featuring the TWA Moonliner and some gorgeous chicken wire.

That top photo shows the old Aunt Jemima Pancake House, with the thatched roof. A nice tie-in to Matterhorn1959's posts!

Great photo of Tomorrowland. It's just a bit dark so I can't quite make out the 'ol Flight Circle, but it must be there. I can smell the hot tar and hear the buzz of the engines now. Rrrrrrrrrr . . . splat! And in the background, "to raise your jet, pull up on the stick . . " sherrr. . . stishsh . . whoosh. " Please remain seated until your jet comes to a complete stop. Have a magical day!"
