Old Disney Photos

I'n not a fan of these things that show up on Facebook but I found this kind of interesting. This has old photos of WDW. The crowd size is a lot different than today.

I can't believe how uncrowded everything was. I love old pictures of WDW!

Many trips to WDW, too many to list. Going back in June 2017!

Oh - 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. I loved that ride as a child and still miss it. I also love the shot of the Magic Kingdom from the Contemporary, the amount of greenery back then is amazing.

Thank you so much for sharing them - those shots are really something and quite the step back in time to a quieter way of life....

Relaxing in Montreux on our weekend break in Switzerland. The pre-trip report for our back-to-back cruises on the Disney Magic is now underway.

My wife got to attend the soft opening of WDW (i.e. before it was opened to the public) back in 1971 and she has pictures like this. It's so cool to see WDW the way it used to be.
