April 1964, Pt. 2: BW Skyway Trip
Today we will soar over the park in our classic Skyway bucket. We start out in Tomorrowland and pass by the Douglas Moonliner & Rocket to the Moon attraction. Looks like Cox Pilot and coworker might be setting up for the next show at the Flight Circle.
In shot 2, we continue our journey towards Fantasyland, passing over the Submarine Voyage.
We’ll dip down for just a second to get a closer look at the Seawolf sub:
Don’t be frightened by the Matterhorn; fortunately there are two holes just the right size for our Skyway bucket to sail through:
Crossing over to Fantasyland, our appetite for lunch begins as we spot some of the famous tuna burgers on the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship Restaurant:
On the other side of the bucket, those spinning teacups might make us a little dizzy. I hope those plastic lawnchairs bolted into the Skyway bucket are secure! Be sure to note the warning inside of the bucket!
Next up is Dumbo, and of course we’ll dip down for a closer look at him, too.
Last but not least is a closeup of the photo of the Frontierland Depot from yesterday’s post. TokyoMagic, I'll let you decide if that's a ticket booth or not.
And for those of you who haven’t seen a Golden Horseshoe poster, here it is in living color:
