Since I am still in Florida, here is a neat vintage Look at Walt Disney World in 1972.
Up first a nice glossy color brochure showcasing how WDW is the Vacation Kingdom of the World! I’ll let you know next week if it still remotely looks like it does in these 36 year old photos.
“Courtesy Guest” book of 5 A thru E good on any attraction tickets from September 1972. These are the “complimentary” tickets that seem pretty plentiful even today. I think hotels and travel agents gave these out like candy, especially in the later 1970’s.
Cool Key design with the original WDW logo in it.
A run down of the attractions available in September 1972.
Here is a nice “7 Adventure" book from March 1972. It has all it’s a thru E tickets, but it's missing the main gate and transportation ticket.
Again, a slightly higher price than a “10 Adventure book” from Disneyland of the same time period. I wonder what justification Disney used to constantly charge more for the Magic Kingdom than at Disneyland. With fewer tickets and fewer attractions at the Magic Kingdom, you would think it would be cheaper? Maybe the Disney Co. had to recoup its capital expenses?
This scan was Donated by a loyal reader (D.G.). This is a complete October 1971 Magic Kingdom ticket book. It has the main gate ticket and the transportation ticket. Thank you D.G. for sending this to the blog, up until now, I had not seen an original complete ticket book, Sweet!
Some time next week I’ll give a full rundown of my Florida experience.
