Motor Boats and The Viewliner


This undated 1950’s image of Disneyland was taken from the dock of the Motor Boat Cruise attraction and affords a rare view of the Fantasyland Viewliner station. Why so rare, you ask? Because the Viewliner barely lasted a year before it was removed.

For Motor Boat Cruise fans, here’s an August 1958 shot:


I can just here the little girl now. “I don’t see mom and dad, Tommy. Full speed ahead!”


I believe the track seen in this portion of the photo belongs to the Viewliner:


Got enough to last you for the weekend? I sure hope so!
