Welcome to Bonus Sunday. On Wednesday’s post (link) we took a look at the Disney News Magazine which had a great article on Space Mountain. The only problem was the article had black & white photographs. It just so happens the Fall-Winter 1977-78 edition of Vacationland has the same article but in color. And well, honestly, the Vacationland issue is much better than the Disney News anyway.
Here is the complete Fall-Winter 1977-78 issue of Vacationland; it’s a large issue at 30 pages. Why in the world did they remove the escalator?
Vacationland Fall-Winter 1977-78 – 125mb
Actually, some of the photos are different altogether from the Disney News version, like this one.
This looks much better in color. I miss the Space Place; I’ll trade Red Rockets for it.
Here’s a close up of the original Starcade. I love those murals! The orange floor tiles were still there a couple weeks ago (link) , let’s hope they’re still there.
These Vacationlands really showcased all of the other attractions Southern California had to offer.
