Color Shifting in 1958: Off To Fantasyland!

Based upon Anonymous' keen eye, I should probaby change the title of this post to "1956/7," however, for consistency's sake, I'll just keep it the same (and give people something to comment about!). On the Skyway still, we are heading towards Fantasyland, and the construction near the Phantom Boat area is most likely for the Viewliner Station...shoulda’ noticed that one myself. Retlaw 1 is parked at the Tomorrowland Depot. Shot #2 takes us directly over Fantasyland with a purply view of the Castle and Mr. Toad/Peter Pan attraction buildings.

On the other side of the bucket we catch a glimpse of the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship restaurant and in the detail shot we can see the Fantasyland Depot:

Last one for today shows quite a crowd around the Teacups; one must remember that in this time period, the Teacups had the excitement level of today’s Space Mountain...well, maybe not quite as much, but purty darn close.

More great stuff, very cool to see the Phantom Boat load area, even without the boats!
