Spaceship Earth

Simple unobstructed view of the entry plaza during the 15 Years of Magic Celebration.

Spaceship Earth with a non-Nemo Living Seas.

Boy I miss these acrylic prisms on this fountain.  It just looks odd without them.

Another shot of the entrance plaza from the far left.

Coral Reef anyone?

Before that stupid stage was contructed blocking much of this view.  Also no other clutter in Future World.

Clutter (stage and otherwise)

Not possible to take this picture anymore.

A golfball in the rough.

California Adventure Main Entrance

The only photo I have of California Adventure is of the entrance which no longer looks like this.

The Living Seas Book

A nifty little book from 1987, The Living Seas by Wayne Eastep.  The bulk of the book focuses on images of sealife but there are some nice pics of the pavilion during construction and in it's original state.

How I miss these ridiculous gaudy spectacles for the grand opening of attractions.

Old Tomorrowland

Today a selection of pictures from Tomorrowland pre-dating the 1994 remodel.  Prior to the 1994 re-model was preceded by a paint job which took the gleaming white modern shapes of the land and painted them in pinks and blues.

From 1976.
