Stagecoach and Santa Barbara
This overhead shot of the Nature's Wonderland attraction from 1957 shows the Stagecoach thundering through the Living Desert.
Zooming in, you can see the miniature pueblos atop the rock formations.
Here's a better view of the Stagecoach, which disappeared from the park somewhere around 1959/1960.
This 1954 shot shows the Stagecoach parked at the Burbank Disney Studio:
Zooming in to the side of the vehicle you can see an illustration of a mission.
When you compare it to this contemporary shot I took of the Santa Barbara Mission, I'd say we have a match!
Another 1954 photo shows Walt with some youngsters horsin' around the Stagecoach on the Disney Studio lot in Burbank:
