Pleased as Punch

Like a proud father, Walt is beaming as he stands atop the Mark Twain, taking another journey around the Rivers of America while his guests stare at the wonders he has created on the banks.

Zooming in, it makes my heart glad to see him looking "pleased as punch" about the park that finally came to fruition, just as he envisioned it.

See more vintage & current Mark Twain photos on my Disneyland Mark Twain web page.

Over the years, I thought I had seen just about every picture of Walt in the park. This shot is a first for me and I agree. Seeing Walt beam from ear to ear is always a special joy.
I just can not imagine seeing him in the park. He was still alive when i first started going; but I never saw him. What a treat that must have been.

What Thufer said! And one more thing - this brought tears to my eyes.
