yes, but we only had five channels, two of them were kind of fuzzy. And if you wanted to watch a diferent one, you had to get up (!) and turn a dial on the set to see it. This was extremely sucky if you were a kid. In most families, the kids were dispatched to do the turning. And even if you really wanted to watch what was on, you still had to get up and change the channel.Did they have TV back then (J/K!):lol:
Love Vault Disney! I love Jiminy Cricket!Incidentally, while googling the lyrics to see if I could find more or better quality versions of this recording, I came across this video of an in-room promotion. Obviously it is not the original one that I remember from 1976 and in which I first heard the song, because a few minutes into the video it starts to show Epcot which wasn't around in '76. I haven't yet watched the whole video all the way to the end to see if the same song appears anywhere in it, but plan to do so later when I have more time. In any case this video ought to be of interest to you.
I was so happy to find this song! I remember watching the promo video at The Contemporary when I was seven. I think it was Susan who hosted the whole thing and there was something about monorail red... I really would love to see the whole show but hearing the song again was great!This entire thread makes me strangely happy
"Where in the world can you go to have fun and enjoy the day...hay. Where in the world is there laughter in a smile- where in the world are your childhood dreams you've dreamed your whole life long. where can the older folks and the younger folks together share a happy time- Walt Disney World, Disney World, its a brighter day..hay- American apple pie will always stay- with little children's laughter, baloons and a big parade-It's a brighter day a brand new world at Disney World, Disney World, Walt Disney World."
Does anyone remember this?
Thank You!!!!! I am so glad I followed this thread! Turning on this channel/loop was always the first thing I'd do upon arrival. It's amazing now to see the emphasis they placed on outdoor activity. The MK was really just one part of the bigger picture.Guys, we were lucky to have found the song itself from that podcast...but I am about to "plus" this whole thing: Here is the video!
There are two versions:
This one is audio only, but goes from start (the instrumental version of "Let's Go Fly a Kite") all the way through the finish (the elusive "Where in the World Can You Go to Have Fun").
And THIS one, is the ACTUAL VIDEO! Not the highest quality, but here it is:
I can't even begin to tell you the joy I get from watching this. I actually downloaded both of these videos to my computer, just in case they ever get taken down for some reason.
What a wonderful blast from the past! I hope that those of you who have seen it in person, way back when, get just as much happiness as I do from this, and I hope that those of you who never got to see it at the time will enjoy seeing the very first version of the Resort TV, from back when it was all so new.
