Somebody water the plants!

Here's another early shot of Disneyland shortly after opening day...

The C.K. Holiday passes the Fred Gurley on the bypass track that would later be used for handcar display. The Mickey planter although barren with young growth, looks exceptionally neat.

Shots like this really show what a huge play-set Disneyland was for Walt.

I think it's what made the park so great...Walt made it for himself first.

I love that view! Today the train's wheels are hidden behind a
short wall of bushes.

Jordan- Nice image it is difficult to find images when the trains are passing each other. The photographer must have waited for the right moment to take this shot. And this Mickey floral piece is so much better than the crap that is in place right now.

I haven't been to the park for a while, did they replace the Mickey floral arrangement with something else???

WOW! This is a wonderful photo. I have never seen the two pass at the Main Street station. Looking at the floral Mickey it appears as if there is in the planter a banner. I have seen concept art where they were going to spell out Disneyland in a banner below Mickey. Did they ever do it?

Major, to answer your question there is a standing 3D floral Mickey... think Rose Parade here with a planted 50th logo.
