Blasting Off!

It's fairly easy to think that with today's leading edge attractions like Tower of Terror, Indiana Jones Adventure, and Mission:Space, that the original Disneyland was just made up of simple spinners and dark rides, albeit with beautiful finishing touches and enhancements. It's just not so!

Above is a terrific piece of artwork for Tomorrowland's Rocket to the Moon. The Imagineers were actually quite brilliant in how they designed the attraction and created the sensations of flight. Want more like this? Head to "The Patent Room". Kudos to a unique and fascinating website.
