Maybe he would operate a hiking trail like a toll road. Enjoy the beauty of Florida's nature, but be sure to stop off at the souvenir and refreshment stands, placed every 12 feet for your convenience.Chapek would probably choke on his lunch after reading “free entertainment” under the Magic Kingdom description.
My parents got these for my sister and me. Now my children drink from them when they visit their grandparents.
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.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 ).
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.View attachment 587139View attachment 587140View attachment 587141
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.
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 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
I remember the train that used to go around FW! They also had a “huckster” truck that came around each day selling fresh fruit.Could even be 1971. MK with 20,000 leagues, only two resorts on SSL, Treasure Island in Bay Lake, trains in FW, Golf Resort (before Disney Inn and Shades of Green).
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.
Yep. It’s the first one we had. To this day no one in my family knows what happened to it.Here are two gems related to Eastern Airlines.
Love this style of 'vintage' artwork for the original 'Vacation Kingdom of The World' ...!
