Old-school Tomorrowland, with the Skyway, the WEDway, and a functional Carousel theater.

The back of this postcard says "One of FANTASYLAND’S stellar attractions-Merlin’s Magic Shop. This unique shop brings to life the legend of King Arthur’s eerie wizard-Merlin. Featured is legendary Excalibur pierced through solid stone. Unbelievable impromptu magic may be seen for amateur and professional use."

It's a little known fact that Disneyland used to have 2 magic shops.

For readers not old enough to have enjoyed the Disneyland mule attraction in one of its three iterations, (Mule Pack from 1955-1959, Rainbow Ridge Pack Mules, and Pack Mules Through Nature’s Wonderland from 1960-1973) you can still share some of the nostalgia when riding on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. The town of Rainbow Ridge, once home to the mules carrying would-be cowboys and cowgirls like myself, still stands in the shadow of the mountain.

Today in Disney History: Pack Mules Through Nature’s Wonderland Opens at Disneyland Park
