Disneyland, January 3, 1960: Skyway over Disneyland
Today’s post is a visual “you are there” trip on the Skyway buckets from Fantasyland to Tomorrowland. Many of the slides in my vintage collection document this trip. The first few shots show us Storybook Land, beginning with an image of Cinderella’s Castle high atop the miniature mountain.
Being able to look over the berm sure does break that wall of fantasy, and makes a somewhat strong case of why the Skyway had its share of detractors.
As we fly over the Submarine Voyage attraction, we know that our trip in the Skyway is just about finished.
If we hurry, we MIGHT just be able to catch that beautiful blue Monorail sitting at the station!
See more Skyway photos at my regular website.
