Say whatever you want about flat surfaces and Walt running out of money at the last minute...early Fantasyland was SPECTACULAR!

Great Photo! That is a photo right? At first it looked like some of your Artwork, but looking closer it appears to be a real photo, taken from the other side of the teacups! How fun, thanks!

It's like walking into an Eyvind Earle illustration!

This blog is my methadone after the demise of The E-Ticket magazine.

Feels like I have walked onto the 'set' of Sleeping Beauty.

Seconding the motion for new desktop pic.

That photo is great, and I love all the colors! I agree with both Vintage and the Major, it looks almost like an illustration.

It makes me smile...
Thank you!

At least we still have the Castle Inn! Not quite the same, but I was admiring it while walking back to the Candy Cane last night.

I couldn't agree more.

I find from personal experience that *good* artists frequently do their very best work when their backs are against the wall.

While there's a big difference in scale between a painting and Disneyland, I have often wondered if the same phenomenon were at play here.

Awesome picture Kevin! My favorite rendition of Fantasyland (with all due respect to my dear David Mumford). I can just taste the ice cold Welch's! Thanks a million.

Does anyone know what dark ride is in the background?

PixieG: The photo shows the junction between Peter Pan (on right) and Toad (on left)

A wideview turned up on Daveland: Kevin's photo lines up with the far left of Dave's photo. A few elements are missing because the photos were taken a few years apart.
