A Daveland Fave Decade: The 1960’s, Pt. 3
While in Central Plaza, we can get a nice unobstructed view of the Castle. The Blaine Gibson statue of Walt & Mickey is many years away; back in 1967, the actual center of the plaza was a very relaxing place with flowers and benches...and even a stroller or two!
Off to the right is the Snow White Wishing Well and statuary area, still in its infancy having been installed only one year previous to this photo.
Once inside Fantasyland, our photographer captured quite a few attractions in just one photo. I spot five; how about you?

Crowds of people wander over to the far reaches of Fantasyland to explore small world, shortly before their brains turn to mush from listening to its theme song.
Here’s a closeup of the AT&T booth located outside small world where you can talk to Mickey Mouse:
Still more to come! See more Disneyland (both recent and vintage) photos at my website.
