June 1959: What an exciting time at the park! The debut of the Subs, The Monorail, and The Matterhorn! Today, I am celebrating that special time by showing you NONE of the aforementioned attractions. That’s right readers: it’s called alternative programming, and I’ve got it here. You’re going to hop on a raft and spend the entire post on Tom Sawyer’s Island.
Oh Fort Wilderness: to see your wooden gates open wide, and the treasures located inside; it warms my heart.
This poor misguided girl seems to think she’s at the Snow White Wishing Well. Hold on dear—you’re only about 2 years too early.
This one is a mystery to me; numerically, I would say that it has to be on Tom Sawyer’s Island based on the photos that surround it. Still...it’s totally unfamiliar to me and looks more like it belongs in the Indian Village. Anyone know about this sign/fence and the tepees inside?
There’s no way these two are planning on making up any time soon. They’ve chosen opposite sides of the rock and aren’t budging until the other one apologizes! Yup; just chalk this one up to a summertime kiddie meltdown!
