Disneyland December 1962, Pt. 3
Today we transfer from the Mark Twain to the Columbia, with some fun shots of the deck and crew on the Floating Skillet (take a ride on the Columbia in the middle of the summer and you'll know where the nickname comes from).
There’s nothing for a little kid (or heck, even most adults) like the feeling of discovery and exploration. Fort Wilderness used to give that thrill in spades, as you can see by this cool sign that leads little tots to a secret tunnel.
Here’s a jarring jump forward in time as our family of photographers takes a ride over Tomorrowland in a Skyway bucket.
“New Tomorrowland” was still about 5 years away when these photos were taken.
