Was Disneyland ever better than it was when "New Tomorrowland" opened in 1967? I suggest that this was Disneyland in it's prime.

"Tomorrowland was rushed together in less than six months for the July 1955 opening of Disneyland. Although significant additions were made in 1959 (Submarines, Monorail, Matterhorn), Walt Disney decided to start fro scratch after the New York World's fair in 1964-1965 and create a New Tomorrowland. Soft yet symmetrical shapes and sculptured reflective surfaces reaching skyward symbolize human aspiration, while constant movement manifests the ceaseless activity envisioned in a city of the future." -The Art of Disneyland by Jeff Kurtti and Bruce Gordon
This broadcast with it's great instrumental music and the 1960's narrator voice and all that amazing footage just takes my breath away.
"Even today’s household word, astronaut, had not been coined." How great would it have been to be the guy wearing the jetpack. Such great footage of the "Atom-mobiles" in Adventures Thru Inner Space. The WEDWay People Mover had such great views of the Tomorrowland. The view of the Character Shop (today's Star Trader) is fantastic. The Flight to the Moon shots are great. What an age. (And nothing was painted gold).
