For your approval, here is a pix of Alpine Gardens circa 1988. For those that don't remember Alpine Gardens, it was the front and back yards of Monsanto's House of the Future. When the House was removed in 1967, Disney left the gardens intact including the covered patio which was turned into a gift stand. The majority of the gardens remained intact even through the subsequent remodels of Ariel's Grotto and Pixie Hollow. So when you look at the area today remember that some of that landscaping dates back to 1957. Happy New Year!!!!!

This shot is from the mid '90s. The time period between Flower Street and the Carnation Cafe. Carnation's Ice Cream Parlor it to the right, where the Blue Ribbon Bakery is now and it was overflow seating for the Parlor outside. I do have to say I prefer it this way to the way it is now as it is just too congested in this area. In front, it's the Dickens Band playing Christmas songs for you. Happy Holidays, Everyone!
