Arrival at Walt Disney World #50YearsAgoToday #FloridaTrip — 7 Comments

  1. I remember those days well, in the mid-70’s. I went to Disney World then and remember seeing the Polynesian and Contemporary, to my teen eyes, the height of glamour!

  2. I had another memory about this day. I know why Country Bear Jamboree was at the top of the list to visit.

    At the end of our trip to Disneyland, two years previously, we ended up with one E ticket. I desperately wanted to use it to see the Country Bear Jamboree, but I was nine years old. There was no way that my parents were going to let me do that by myself.

    With another chance to see the show, the Country Bear Jamboree was the top of my list when we visited the Magic Kingdom at Disney World. So, that was one of the first places that we went.

  3. I remember hula dancers at the Polynesian village, and I remember looking at the structures of it over the water, lit with tiki torches or something similar. I also remember all the shells on clearwater beach.

  4. My parents didn’t enjoy amusement parks, so we never visited Disneyworld or Disneyland. Instead, they took us to the outdoors, trips to Yellowstone and Colorado and West Texas. I apparently got the no-park gene, and I never took my sons either.

    I am enjoying seeing Disneyworld through both your young eyes, your mature eyes, and your mother’s eyes.
