Early Disneyland, Pt. 5

After a little Sleeping Beauty diversion, I am returning to the pre-opening series of photos. To get an idea of what part of the Rivers of America this area is located at, check out the 1955 aerial shot here & closeup:

See more vintage & current Rivers of America photos at my regular website.

The first photo shows how the river cuts into the shore to form a place to moor a boat. There were several of these mooring pockets around the rivers in the early years.

Does anybody know what they were intended for?

Amazing to see Fort Wilderness as only a few rickety 2 X 4's. i'm wondering if those were placed there to get an idea of the scale of the thing?
