Disneyland, October ’59, Pt. 5
Today we enter the gates of Frontierland, which is probably one of the biggest lands in the park. It does seem a little funny to view the little girl in the pink poodle skirt standing near the rustic gated entrance. Slide #2 shows the Floating Wedding Cake, aka The Mark Twain, with the Columbia squeaking by on the left.
The Main Street-styled Ice Cream Vendor seems a little out-of-place next to the old-fashioned Columbia; however, at 15¢ per treat, I won’t complain!
Love the way this cast member on the Columbia rigging is silouhetted through the California sunshine:
I am a huge Rainbow Ridge fan, and so glad that most of these buildings still survive today.
Guests working up an appetite for something more substantial than an ice cream bar can satisfy their hunger over at Casa de Fritos:
