Here's some footage I uploaded a while back from 1959. I was also told the first shot was from Knotts Berry Farm. Anyways, it's from my family's personal home videos and both my mom and her brother are in the video. As for the copyright, unfortunately, I had some people attempt to "use" my footage, so that's why it's there. Enjoy!

Feel free to let me know if YouTube is acting up with this video, as it has been lately.

Hatter's videos are definitely from the late '60s. The show was broadcast on Wonderful World of Color for the opening of the 1967 New Tomorrowland. It was the second half of the show, the first half being the introduction and opening of Pirates of the Caribbean. It was notable because it was the first opening of major sections of the Park after Walt passed and his presence was definitely missing from the show.
I think Trent's video clip is also from the late '60s - at least the monorail shots are - those are Mark IIs and they were replaced by the Mark IIIs around 1969...
The first video in this post was spectacular! Getting to hear the narration for the old Nature ride, and seeing the old versions of the characters was a real treat. It's interesting how the current Dwarves have traded "form" (Dopey's ears and Doc's glasses) for "function" (working hands).
I'll watch the others tonight when I'm off work.
Stuck in Western NY, and feeling so far away from the Magic.
