Nature’s Wonderland 1960 Construction, Pt. 2



Today’s Nature’s Wonderland construction photos illustrate the enlargement and sprucing up of Rainbow Ridge, the quaint little mining town that was part of Nature’s Wonderland. Imagine all of the detail that Imagineers put into a little town that guests would never even be able to visit. Despite the slightly smaller scale, they look convincingly authentic.

More incredible construction pics! The view in the second to last shot, looking up at that cabin...it reminds me of the outlaw's hideout in the movie, "Johnny Guitar."

Man, how I wish I could show these to my dad. This was his favorite attraction at Disneyland.

Fantabulous fotos from frontierland. I loved the old -- and the newer-- Mine Train and still enjoy imagining the ride around Cascade Peak when strolling Thunder Trail ... or cruising the Rivers of America. These BW construction photos are a dream come true for me.
