Disneyland Pack Mule Entrance, 1961

I’m all about capturing that sense of entrance, and finally I have a decent color shot of the queue for the Pack Mule attraction. Yes, these are the things I am fueled by. This October 1961 shot also captures a man sitting patiently with his crutches. Maybe he had fallen off one of the mules already.

Here’s the undated shot I already had in my collection. Yes, I’m all about the upgrade.

This one does give a better view of the signage though, which is also high on my priority list. I would just barely make the weight limit of 195. Good thing I skipped dessert last night.

See more vintage Disneyland Pack Mule attraction photos at my main website.

Or that fellow is a former Mule Train CM! What is really striking is Cascade Peak in the background. It's such an iconic feature that is so missing in today's Frontierland. KS

I would have missed Cascade Peak if KS didn't point it out. Thank you.

Geez, 195 lbs. Most DL guests today wouldn't qualify. Those poor mules.
