Laboring Over Labor Day, Pt. 2
In part two of my Labor Day Spectacular, I will be concentrating on the glorious Summer of 1959 additions. Can you imagine that the Matterhorn ever began this way? Talk about breaking a project into its smallest pieces! On the right-hand side, you can see the Moonliner in the distance.

Back in Tomorrowland, the Matterhorn looms over the House of the Future:

Hard to imagine all of the work that these cast members did to make this a reality that we still enjoy today.
