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!!!!!
