While I was at Walt Disney World in Orlando (with my fabulous tour guide, Tiki Bob), I saw this cool old model in the "Walt Disney: One Man's Dream" walkthrough exhibit at Disney-MGM Studios. The sign accompanying it says it was made in 1954 by Fred Joerger. This might be from when it was still being conceived as a restaurant -- the side of the building you can see here is one half of a hexagon, and the opposite side you can't see is what became the Plaza Gardens (if my memory for Disneyland geography is serving me at the moment). The detail on the model is really great, my photos don't really do it justice. Also, my pics are only capturing about 1/3 of the model, the rest of the model shows the dock for the Jungle Cruise and some of the Adventureland bazaar.
