A Day @ Disneyland, July 27, 1955 (pt. 5)



This installment covers the family’s trip through Fantasyland, starting off with the Snow White ride and a rare view of the mural inside the line queue. Shot 2 shows grandma holding grandson (c’mon kid, get down. she’s gotta’ be tired too!) outside of the barren Casey Jr. attraction. The Chicken of the Sea in shot 3 appears to still be under construction (no tuna sandwich for grandma today). And hopefully the gentleman in shot 4 moved his tired bod out of the way before Dumbo took off.







The final shot for today shows the Canal Boats before there was actually a “story” to see.

Wow! Great stuff Dave! I love seeing scaffolding up for the Chicken of the Sea ship in plain sight of guests...

Thanks Dave, these are all really nice. I agree with both tangaroa AND perkypickle...the pirate ship and the canal boats (just look at all of that magical dirt) are wonderful
