FINAL 80s Flashback: More Fantasyland

Today we take a final peak at Disneyland during the decade of my youth, starting with two angles of the Casey Junior attraction (former) ticket booth.

A few "you are there" style shots from the attraction itself:

Looks like you're SOL if you want to purchase something at Gepetto’s Arts and Crafts shop. I am guessing these shots were captured early morning before the Park was open, so if you can juuuuuuust wait a few hours, you might be able to get a trinket here.

The entrance to the Pinocchio attraction:

The Snow White attraction exterior:

A zoom-in view of the attraction entrance door and signage:

Another view of the exterior, featuring the "gargoyles":

Love this detail of the ravens on the skulls:

Still there today!

You know you've been to Disneyland too many times, when...

you're able to recognize a building exterior from the corner of one letter.

Back to the 80s exterior of Peter Pan's Flight:

One of King Arthur's Carrousel:

Kind of Alice's exterior, but also a bathroom exterior...I'll leave it up to you how you want to classify it:

Final one for the series has us whisking off from the now defunct Fantasyland Skyway Station:

That last photo is priceless. The tall pines and the single gondola ready to leave the Swiss chalet. I always loved that feeling of being pushed out of the station and feel the cable catch our gondola as we climbed out over storybook land leaving behind the one tree that separated arriving gondolas from departing ones.

Always your pal,

PS - Dave I went back and added a tone of useless detail to the Big Thunder 1980s post. Thanks for the memories.

I went back to the Big Thunder 1980's post and read all of your added information about the slides. Very informative and interesting - thank you so much.

Thanks Irene. I guess it is all there for posterity. Glad you like it! : )

Always your pal!
