Disneyland in Slides - 1967/68

It’s time for a few vintage Disneyland slides. This first one is from April 1968 and sure is a beauty. Some cool looking people hanging around the entrance. The three guys in blue jackets on the right all have matching shoes! Those yellow and purple flower beds were way cool.

The remaining four slides in today’s post are from January 1967. Unfortunately the color is pretty shot; these are “Agfachrome” slides, they're no Kodachrome's! Three boats in one picture, not bad.

Not to add to partners statue bashing, but the hub looked far better with this simple look.

New Orleans Square in the shade!

Main Street all washed out. The park looks like a very light crowd, my kind of day!

I want to jump into that first pic and run around. Oh, and go on Carousel of Progress, Adventure Thru Inner Space and the PeopleMover about a dozen times each!

Nice shot of the Tomorrowland entrance! If it makes you feel any better, one of the rationales for adding the Partners statue was to prevent something like the Globe of Death from ever, ever happening there again.

That lousy Afga film! Your pictures still look pretty good though. And that first one is a beauty! Those guys win the jeans and jackets are clearly a gang!

I'm grabbing tomorrowland for that day in the distant future when I tire of the Major's Skull Rock pic as my desktop.

I'll have to agree I like the clear shot of the castle from the hub, but I really like the Partner's statue and how it keeps Walt right there with us.

I'm with TokyoMagic!....I wanna play in the ole Tomorrowland.

I had to go back and stare at that first pic again this morning. I just noticed that the PeopleMover isn't cars to be seen anywhere. And Inner Space looks like it's glass doors might be pulled closed. What gives?
