I have another small group of slides from Walt Disney World from its first year - it had only been open since October 1st, as you know. None of them are anything amazing, but like Disneyland, I like seeing photos from the early years.
I put these in the order in which they were taken (based on the number stamps on the slides), just because. Here's the first one, taken by a sandy beach at what I believe was the Polynesian resort by the Seven Seas Lagoon. If the photographer had panned to our left a bit, we would have seen the spire of Cinderella Castle.
I'm not sure what that station is - a Monorail station? Or perhaps that's where guests disembarked from boats that had crossed the lagoon? Whatever the case, this is the most exciting photo that has ever existed in the history of the world.
Hooray, we're inside the Magic Kingdom; Town Square, to be precise. There's the Christmas tree, so we know this really is December. A Horse Drawn Streetcar passes - does anybody know if those are exactly the same as Disneyland's? Looks like there's a slight breeze, do the Florida parks ever get cold?
There's more from WDW to come!
