April at Disneyland: Disneyland RR Dioramas
It was time to head over to Disney California Adventure, and what better way to finish a day at Disneyland than to take The Grand Circle Tour on the Disneyland Railroad? Today's post is centered on the grand finale, beginning with the Grand Canyon Diorama.
The beautiful panorama painting, the lighting, the taxidermy…it all comes together for a real "wow" experience that I always enjoy. Add in the music by Ferde Grofé and you have a winner every time.
Love the rainbow.
And then, we head back in time to the Primeval World!
Those crazy animatronics that came from the New York World's Fair may be a bit corny, but I enjoy them, too!
What a finish…dinosaurs, lava, and dramatic lighting!
As a final treat for today, here's an image from the UCLA Digital Archive, showing the Triceratops being put together, July 14, 1966.
