June 25, 1966: Pt. 1



Same photographer, different day. Starting off in Town Square, I have included a detail shot of the sign outside of City Hall.



Here’s a slightly blurry one of the Square itself:



Moving over to Adventureland, we have a mixed bag of quality for the Treehouse:









I took a ton ’o pics this weekend...we’re talking a ton. I will be posting a bunch this week, so you vintage die-hards will just have to suffer through. This little series shows the new Monorail cruising through the park. I really love the new design, and I am glad that the kinks have finally been ironed out. I rode in both the cone and the regular area (not at the same time though!), and enjoyed both trips.

Yep, the new Monorail is a winner for sure. I've heard gripes about air-conditioning problems, but I'm sure that can be dealt with in some way.

Isn't the Golden Gate Bridge going to be removed? I thought I heard that somewhere.

Yes, that's the current thinking about the reconfiguration of the DCA entrance: Remove the tile-postcard entrance facades, remove the Golden Gate bridge and Sun Icon in the entry plaza, and then "reconfigure". I am not sure what has been proposed to take their places, but the entrance will temporarily be moved west thru the present desert airport section.

Major - I rode the Monorail in the un-airconditioned portion on Saturday; no problem...didn't seem uncomfortable at all. So far, the only "complaints" i've heard about the heat in the Monorail were from people who have been speculating. Actually, I thought the Cone areas were TOO cold!
