In operation from October 1, 1971 to November 10, 1999, the Skyway at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom outlasted the Disneyland attraction by 5 years and the Tokyo Disneyland version by one year.
Let’s take a trip from Tomorrowland to Fantasyland.
The first two photographs are from the Tomorrowland Transit Authority. I love how the second image has so much of the pylon in it.
|Is this how you properly frame a photo?|
The rest of the pictures are from the Skyway gondola bucket proper as we head languidly towards Fantasyland.
|I love the scope of Tomorrowland you can see here.|
|Obviously, this trip was in 1997.|
|Does turning the camera sideways make it more artistic? The Castle Cake in all of its glory.|
|Yes, that is Mickey’s Toontown in the background. Goofy’s Barnstormer is obvious. Did you notice his pants ?|
|At this time 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea had been closed for a few years. It was still a beautiful body of water to glide over.|
|Fantasyland is always busy. This is an interesting angle since you can see the it’s a small world show building and Arial’s Grotto.|
Check out all of the people waiting in line for Dumbo the Flying Elephant. If you look a little closer, you can see that the queue is covered with umbrellas!
I have always been surprised by the lack of photos I took on vacations before owning a digital camera. But with each trip, I took more and more photos.
