Fabulous '59: An Assortment

Today finishes out this 1959 series with a random assortment of images and closeups. Back in the day, TWA sponsored the Moonliner/Rocket to the Moon attraction in Tomorrowland.

Zooming in, you can see the entrance, attraction posters (Mine Train Ride and The Disneyland Hotel), and a little girl running when she should be walking!

A little further to the right is the ticket booth? It's hard for guests today to imagine that at one time you had to have individual tickets for almost every attraction.

Stepping back into the past, we have an unobstructed interior view of Fort Wilderness:

The Columbia is docked at Fowler's Harbor. No Haunted Mansion. No Splash Mountain. BUT there is the former Mickey Mouse Club Circus Tent being reused as part of Holidayland (visible on the far left):

WOW! These were great! I love it when you zoom in on things!

I didn't know that the MMC circus tent was the same one they used for Holidayland. Or I knew it and forgot it!

Neat to see a little bit of Holidayland.

There are a lot of people hurrying in that first photo--they're anticipating A World on the Move!

What's that little shack that sitting in the Haunted Mansions spot? (to the left of Fowlers Harbor) I don't remember ever seeing that before.
