Disneyland, October 1970 Pt. 3

What better day to visit Fantasyland than a Friday? Step right up readers and through the Castle we will visit this most beloved of the lands. I wonder if there’s any chance that the Castle can be returned to its more tasteful pink coloration for the Sleeping Beauty Diorama rededication? Next up is a boat of unsuspecting guests who don’t seem to realize that Monstro is about to gobble them up in Storybook Land.

Nearby at the Matterhorn, we have 3 lovely shots, with a few bobsleds visible in motion:

See more vintage & current Fantasyland photos at my regular website. “Nightmare Before Christmas” fans—this Tim Burton classic is now available on Blu-ray, and also features a way cool tour of the Haunted Mansion (NBC version). Available at

Whoo-eee, look a the outfits that the women wore on Storybook Land! But I respect them for their minds.

Yes, Major, that's why my high school buds and I always enjoyed Storybook Land several times per visit during the 70s. And we'd always angle to sit at the back of the boat!

There's very very very little chance.

Hey I love the first Matterhorn pic especially. The Mt a bit pink on my screen? But it's such a great pic anyway, I just want to walk in!

Love the early pics but this is pretty much the Disneyland as I remember it, so I'm enjoying these just as much :)
