Grand Canyon Diorama
Aren’t these little kiddies adorable? Could you possibly find two more perfectly coiffed kids? They are posing inside the Grand Canyon Diorama, which was not yet open when this photo was shot. From the accompanying publicity blurb:
Disneyland’s new Grand Canyon Diorama, which opens March 31, will give viewers the sensation of actually looking down into the famed Grand Canyon of Arizona. The Disneyland Grand Canyon is the longest painting in the world, stretching 306-feet. In the foreground are animals, trees and rock formations typical of the high rims around the Grand Canyon. Although these children are playing in the “snow,” Disneyland visitors will actually view the Grand Canyon from the Santa Fe and Disneyland Railroad trains which travel around Disneyland.
Today, the Grand Canyon Diorama and its taxidermied treasures are still a highlight for me whenever I visit the park.
