This one is my fave, showing the anticipation of an up-hill climb; I can hear the chain straining now!
And one more shot of the Matterhorn in action, with a closeup of the kids having a blast and screaming their heads off!
Here we see the Tomorrowland Skyway Station; our photographer did an excellent job of documenting his Skyway trip.

Emerging on the other side, we find ourselves in Fantasyland. What will we ride first once we land?
