Matterhorn Blowout!

Today we have the Matterhorn coming out our ears, folks! Check it out. First 2 views are some nice undated BW views that include the Skyway buckets.

This July 1960 shot has just the edge of the Monsanto House of the Future on the right side:

Last view is from September 1967, with the PeopleMover, Skyway, Submarines, and Monorail as extra added bonuses!

See more vintage and current Disneyland Matterhorn photos on my regular website.

I'd like to walk right into pic #3, that looks about as peaceful and relaxing as a day at the park could be.

That 4th pic is awesome! You can really see the mermaid 'changing room' next to the Submarine Voyage dock that Cox Pilot told us about. I think there might be a mermaid out on her rock as well.

Is that the Columbia with her sails half down in the distance, between the Skyway buckets and the Matterhorn? It seems like such a long way from Tomorrowland to the ROA, but this shows you how close it really is!

The newly expanded Sierra Tower at the Disneyland Hotel also sits proudly in the background. You can see the words on the sign at the top have been flipped to their correct order. How awesome it would've been to have a drink up at the Top of the Park lounge after visiting the park on a day like this one.
