Welcome to Disneyland, Circa Summer 1962, The (Semi) Grand Finale
It's a veritable Del Monte Fruit Cocktail in Heavy Syrup assortment today, as the Circa Summer 1962 batch comes to a close. Taking you back out to Central Plaza, we again see the patriotic bunting that typically adorns the park during the July 4th "season." Oh yeah...don't forget to check out that Matterhorn thing in the background!
The photographer made a short detour to Tomorrowland, just in time to get a blurry shot at The Autopia:
And then went back over to Adventureland to capture a few more crazy hats and guest's derrieres (that's French for buttocks, just in case you aren't that sophisticated).
This one is my fave for the day; not only does it show signage (Geek alert!), but it also shows the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse under construction. That's right—the attraction about which Walt himself dared to say “And they say only God can make a tree!” I wonder if lightning struck after he said that to Julie Andrews?!?
And the final one (get out the hankies) is the wonderful Skull Rock Cove, situated behind The Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship Restaurant. One of those semi-hidden restful areas where a handful of guests could get away from the regular crazy that often goes on at Disneyland during the summer.
