A Wild Ride With Mr. Toad

Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. What a kick! I love this vintage photograph, showing Disneyland's Fantasyland in its early charm.  Even though its black and white here, we know the colorful buildings, banners, and pennants created a fun medieval environment to celebrate the joys of childhood. Really the simple joy of family and friends. The land itself has gone through so many changes and additions over time- most noticeably the entire revamp in 1983, but Fantasyland still remains the heart of the park. Just as Star Wars Land will soon represent its business mind.
