My parents got these for my sister and me. Now my children drink from them when they visit their grandparents.

Great thread idea.

I have a ton of vintage early WDW items, and at some point I will try to snap some photos.

Have some 1970s peices such as a early poseable Minnie doll ( made to look like her walkaround form ) and a funky Mickey 'head bobber' figure.
Loads of early 1980s items...original early Figment peices, early Epcot stuff, plus WDW merch and paper goods.
It's kind of nuts the crazy things I held on to over the years.

Probably the craziest -
1979 paper luggage tag used by Eastern Airlines promoting WDW ( at the time they were the 'Official Airline of WDW' )
1985 paper cup and napkin from Eastern Airlines promoting EPCOT Center ( cool graphics ).

We had the Eastern Airlines poster with Mickey in the middle of it but no one knows what happened to it. I miss flying Eastern to Orlando.

Have a a lot more but this is the most interesting. Lots of stuff from the 1976 Bicentennial, old Epcot logo puzzles, Disney dollars, even something from the Ford pavilion at the 64 worlds fair. My favorite is the leaf from the tree of life.
Ah, the coveted Disney Dollar. Nothing compares to spending five minutes convincing your cashier that what you’re handing them is, in fact, legal tender.

I want to know what happened to my stuffed figment. I had one of the larger ones... maybe like 16-18"? I did find a small vinyl one.

I also had this book set and certificate for an educational course/tour. This one I have a hard time remembering, but the book and workbook are pretty elaborate!

The keys to the kingdom tour I did on a later tour (I remember being excited to be old enough to go on the tour solo) had a great book as well, but I think that one was damaged in a flood and thrown out :/

The one that kills me is I had a fold up map in the style demarke listed above that I loved and I know I kept immaculate on my shelf. But it wasn't in the pile of stuff my parents dropped off years ago that I can find :(
My large stuffed Figment that I bought on my first visit to Epcot and a large stuffed Mickey were thrown out without my knowledge. By my soon-to-be ex-wife while packing up the house during our divorce. The Mickie was a gift to me from her mother.

I still have a large (larger than a silver dollar) 25th Anniversary coin.
