Disneyand, April 1963, Pt. 1
From Knott's to Main Street U.S.A., today's post continues with the series that I introduced yesterday from April 1963. The first image from Town Square yields some great closeups. You can see that Mr. Lincoln has yet to move in; instead, the Opera House is inhabited by the Mickey Mouse Club with a shoe shine stand situated in front.
Here's a better shot of the shoe shine stand:
The information booth is full of all kinds of merchandise; check out the little boy in the Mouse Ears proudly waving his souvenir!
Patriotism at its best; the country's flag and the state’s flag, waving proudly over Town Square.
The Carnation Gardens bandstand looks fairly empty; today, this place fills up with swing dancers on the weekend. It's quite a sight to see!
Today's post dumps you off at Central Plaza, with the Monsanto House of the Future just ahead.
