Disneyland 1963 BW Negatives, Pt. 2

Hop aboard the Skyway for a birds-eye view of Storybook Land! Zooming in for a closeup, we can pull a Gladys Kravitz and check out the guests who are touring in a boat marked “Registered at Denham.” Naturally, I know what that means; doesn’t everyone?

The Fantasyland Skyway Station is just within reach! I can’t say that I really miss the Skyway itself (although it is a cool way to go between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland), but I do wish the Imagineers could come up with some kind of adaptive reuse of the Fantasyland Skyway Station that has sat vacant at the top of the hill all these years.

Casey Junior is chugging by Cinderella’s Castle:

Not quite sure what the construction is, visible in this closeup; perhaps it is the lost city of Denham!

The Black Swans & Ducks are living a carefree life of luxury in the Sleeping Beauty Castle moat:

A few shots of Vesey Walker leading the band in the Carnation Gardens Bandstand:

C’mon folks; put your drinks down and give this guy a standing ovation!

In Blu-ray/DVD News: The release of Toy Story 3 is only one week away! Here are a few bonus clips for you to check out:

Gladys Kravitz - LOL!!

The Fantasyland terminus of the SkyWay is indeed a treasure laying dormant in the park. I shall continue to hope along with you for a good (and public use) to come of this wonderful structure.

Thanks for Storybook Land. It's a good day.

Is it possible that make-shift structure is the catching place for Tinker Bell? I see hay bails out back for the horses.

Lee - That sounds like a good guess; currently, Tinker Bell's catching place is right near the Village Haus, which is a good ways away from the location shown in this photo.

We're catching a glimpse of the Circle D Ranch in the background. Could the construction be a platform for shooting off fireworks?
