By Mark Hickson: In this photo from 1957 guests are taking their seats just before the show is to begin. So what will they see? Radio controlled boats races and tethered gas powered model airplanes! This "Lake" was only inches deep but still offers a great reflection of the Rocket to the Moon attraction. Here is an aerial photo of it.


This attraction was really a filler for Tomorrowland when it opened in September 1955. It was never popular unless you were really into this niche hobby. Once you saw it you never came back. I am amazed it stayed open for a full ten years. When it finally closed in January 1966 it was replaced by a sidewalk! It does offer a great trivia question: What was the name of the Land that was within a Land at Disneyland?
