What an experience that must have been. Riding a Conestoga Wagon past the Rivers of America during the early beginnings of the park.
I would rather have the wagons back then a Frie stand.

Seeing the Mark Twain drive past the wagons is really surreal. It really gives some time scale as to just how far the Twain goes back, but it's also really weird because I'm so used to seeing it with 21st century tourists with a modern background.
Some areas of Disneyland were so radically different, it's so fun to see something TOTALLY different like that inside Disneyland. I didn't know the McFry Cart actually called back to an old attraction, but when I saw the first picture of the real attraction I though, "Wait a minute, that looks familiar", lol.
$3 for McDonald's fries and people flock to it, no wonder Disney feels it can charge over $60 per person at the front gate.
Quote: "In San Bernardino, California, on December 12, 1948, Richard and Maurice McDonald opened the original McDonald’s “Speedee Service System” restaurant selling 15-cent hamburgers and 10-cent french fries. "
Thanks to Werner for properly crediting San Bernardino as being the original location of the first "Mc Donald's". Corporate Mickey D's barely mentions this fact, prefering to give Ray Kroc most of the credit instead of the McDonald Brothers.
i was lucky enough to ride the pack mule train on my first visit in the summer of 68, but i think the wagons were closed by then... and didn't i hear that, not unlike todays disgusting suv's they were subject to the occasional tipover? (one of the reasons they were shut down)
