I think the wooden creatures over on the Island were usually referred to as Woodimals, but this ticket that I saved from childhood lists them as Woodniks. I wonder when the name change occurred? I like that tag line, "Where Adults Enjoy Exploring and Children Love to Play." Sounds like a Walt Disney philosophy, "Where children and adults can have fun together."
Here are two postcards featuring the Island. The first one shows the covered bridge at the entrance. On the far left is a Woodnik/Woodimal that looks like it could have been related to the original Ghost Town "Catawampus" (not the one that resides there today.)
In the postcard below, that little girl is riding a Woodnick rocking horse that would spit water out of it's mouth when you rocked forward.
