You Are There: September 1959, pt. 3 & The Princess and The Frog

Dad sure loves the "you are there" point of view with the camera; here we can see the family as they "glide" out of the loading area of the Matterhorn and also see the innovative steel tubular track!

Two views of the Submarine Voyage and The Skyway:

And for a really fantastic point-of-view series, here is a trip on the Skyway from the Tomorrowland Station over to Fantasyland:

Zooming in for a look at the rarely seen Tomorrowland Train Depot:

WIth this closeup shot, it's easier to see the Matterhorn climber:

DVD/Bluray Update: Get ready on March 16 as “The Princess and the Frog” is released. The Bluray is packed full of fantastic high-def extras; don't miss this American Fairy Tale. Pre-order on

Excellent post, I really dig the ride on the Skyway! Nice (rare) Tomorrowland Train Station ticket booth shot, that thing was pretty plain & ugly and rarely photographed.

Wow, what a fantastic bunch of photos! Love the Matterhorn loading area and the Skyway station!

Oh, the Skyway - my favorite, long-lost attraction. I miss it so.

Great pics as usual. I especially love the one on the Skyway over Fantasyland, looking back towards Tomorrowland. In one shot, not only do you get the Skway and the Matterhorn, but a climber, a Matterhorn car, an Alice in Wonderland car, and the facades of Fantasyland itself. Amazing!
