Blast from the Past WDW Trip Report

Postby Mrlittle » Sun Jul 23, 2017 4:51 pm

So I had found this photos before and totally forgot about them. I was deleting photos on my laptop when I saw them again and thought I share them. Most of the photos are from Magic Kingdom with the exception of one from EPCOT. I mainly wanted to share them because its pretty awesome to see the park. I was only 2 years old so I asked my mother about each photo. I tried to clean up the photos some but they were taken around 29 years ago. Hope you enjoy this blast from the past!

I bet if Disney could,they would store everything to reuse again. I kind of remember something like it when we went in the early 90's.

:lol: This was a lot of fun to look at, mostly because we went around the same time and have very similar pictures.

We went to Disney when we were little and honestly our pictures look pretty much the same. We either had those same ridiculous shirts or really similar ones and I'm pretty sure your uncle and my dad went to the same clothing store before the trip. The only difference is that my dad still dresses that way and seems hell-bent on single handedly bringing back the 80's.

I Love Donkeys!

Yeah, that castle float is still used in the MK Christmas parade, I believe.

I did a little searching, and that float debuted in 1986 for the MK 15th Anniversary Parade! I can't believe it's still around!

Waste not, want not. I think just about every theme park re-purposes old stuff.

Thanks for this look back.
