Up Up And Away!

The Fantasyland Skyway Station still remains in the Park (surprisingly!), but the Tomorrowland Station is a thing of the past. This 1956 image shows you what it looked like. For an interior view, this rare July 1960 shot captures the fun of being quickly loaded and then whisked off for a fabulous journey soaring over the park.

Oh how I wish I could read these papers posted on the wall!

Pulling back you can see the buckets as they leave the platform in this 1950's photo:

A black and white shot of the station:

This poor 1962 guest looks a bit dizzy from her ride as she exits the bucket:

Meanwhile, over in Fantasyland…hard to believe, but the Fantasyland Skyway Station is still standing. But for how long?

Hope you enjoyed your ride aboard the Skyway!

Man, these are great pics. I had to look at them through my fingers as my hands covered my face, LOL. Those darn round buckets TERRIFIED me as a kid because I just knew that I was going to fall out!
