Our Dapper Day Tour of Walt Disney's Disneyland continues in perhaps the happiest land of them all, Fantasyland! Here we are standing on the other side of Sleeping Beauty Castle. This is probably the least photographed side of the castle but the top half of the castle is the original front of the castle. According to Disney Legend, the top was flipped around and when Walt saw it, he loved it and the castle was built this way.
I love this shot! You can see all the way down Main Street USA to the train station! The use of black and white here really takes you back to 1955! Once again thank you to my friend Kevin for these great photos!
Even though Dumbo did not open in Fantasyland until three months, you cannot imagine Fantasyland without this attraction! I love that they have this Dumbo vehicle off to the side to take photos with.
Just enjoying another perfect day at Disneyland!
Taking a spin on the Mad T Party. Another classic Fantasyland attraction and another attraction with a photo vehicle.
The only attraction with the word "ride" in it! Mr. Toad's Wild Ride is another attraction with a photo vehicle in front of it! Great for taking your time to set up a great photo!
Time to ride my favorite attraction in Fantasyland, King Arthur's Carousel!
How can you not be happy to be riding one of the horses on the carousel?
Kristen is also riding the most special horse on the entire carousel. Do you know what makes this particular horse special?
Kristen is riding on top of Jingles, the lead horse of the carousel, named for her ornate carvings and beautiful straps of jingle bells hanging from her saddle and cantle. During the 50th Anniversary of Disneyland, Jingles was dedicated as the Julie Andrews horse.
A closer look at the saddle shows Mary Poppins' boots, Julie's initials, a flying silhouette of Mary Poppins and the number"50" representing Disneyland's 50th Anniversary!
Hope you enjoyed our Dapper look at Fantasyland! Look for more in this photo series as we celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Disneyland!
