Teen Magazine - April 1972 - Guide to Walt Disney World

Welcome to Magazine Monday.  Its been a while since we've had a Walt Disney World related magazine and this 16 page Walt Disney World article will help make up for lost time.  From April 1972, this issue of Teen Magazine has an extensive look at Walt Disney World through the eyes of a teenager. 





I'm not even sure who this pretty young lady is, but boy can see write a diary! This article is long and ends with a fascinating detailed look at the employees (cast members?) of a very young Walt Disney World.  The 16 page article is presented below in order, complete with WDW tie-in advertisements.





Kurt Russell looks too cool for words..



Wow, what a setup indeed!





Kurt gets around...



Wow....



Monsanto!





Kurt just loves the ladies...



I miss the early 1970's.



Awesome artwork for your pets.



Some pretty faces...



Great information on the early WDW employees.








The article ends with this page about a contest to win a trip to where else but Walt Disney World! Only three days? I guess there was only one park back then so you only needed three days.



Now for some classic advertisements.  I used to love that powdered breakfast.



Weird early 70's art that always gave me the creeps (and it still does...).



I'm thinking she looked nicer before the Yardley...



OK, I'm not sure whats going on here, but the smile on the dudes face seems self explanatory...



I still have my Toot-A-Loop radio (in white) and it still works great.



More early 70's creepy artwork, what were they thinking?

"Eventually they're even going to build a city!" No, 70s girl, they're not. Not ever.
