Vintage Skyway Attraction Posters...

   Can we talk about how much fun I've been having posting images of vintage Tomorrowland attraction posters?  I'm going to be so sad when I've run out of things to post. :(
   But for the time being that sad thought is on the horizon, and we can just focus on the positive. For instance, the long time defunct Skyway to Fantasyland!  Here are two amazing posters advertising this little gem, for both Disneyland and Tokyo Disneyland.

Skyway, Disneyland and Walt Disney World
Bjorn Aronson, 1956 

Skyway, Tokyo Disneyland
Rudy Lord, 1983

   There is something immensely Japanese about the second poster…I guess Rudy Lord was really getting into the spirit of the project.  Why are the figures all so grumpy? They're on the Skyway for crying out loud! If you want to see more of Lord's work you can visit his company's website...
