Remember, picking on people about mipspleddings and grammar is fun, but don't let it degenerate into a flame war.

Because the cash wrap used to be the Show Grille for making the eggs and Mickey pancakes, they just put Ivory Plexiglas inside the vent hood and covered the hole in the counter. The grease catch cups are still on the front corners. Why they left the fire system is obvious (free to abandon it in place) - but why they refill it each year is a total mystery to me.
JWBear: I think you're right that it's the Opera House side, with the shop on the left - It can't be a flopped negative unless the train was running around the park CCW or they had the Caboose in the middle of the train construct. I saw the seam in the foreground and didn't study the background that hard.
Here's an interesting yet pointless project I just thought up: Take these pictures back to the park, and see how many of the original trees are still standing. It will be obvious by comparing the branch structure - even though they'll be a whole lot bigger.
Oh, as to the photo film question, I'm asking to see which ones faded worse (dye color stability) over time. The negatives or slides will be marked on the edges, and print paper on the back - Kodachrome, Ektachrome, Fuji, GAF, Polaroid, Kirkland Signature... (Still have 4 rolls of KS Print 400-24 left in the back fridge, from when I went Digital.)
If I ever get a slide scanner, I can contribute several hundred Early Disneyland shots to the pile - Dad usually shot color slide film with an early Auto-Exposure Minolta 35MM. I really should scan in the print of me in the Carnation Milk Truck (Gurrmobile).
