    Remember the Disneyland Viewmaster 3D Reels??

    I've was packing up my room today (I'm moving soon) and I came across my stash of my Viewmaster 3-D reels in my closet and remembered how much I loved those things. I have 36 Disneyland/World reels x 7 pictures a reel = 252 3D Disney Park images. I remember finding the mother load at a Toy Liquidator store in an outlet mall a long time ago when I bought as many as I could. Did anyone else have these things?

    Anyway, I tried an experiment with my digital camera to try and make a 3D image to put on the computer. If you cross your eyes like with those old Magic Eye posters, you could see the 3D image below. I screwed up the lighting slightly on the right one, but I think it came out pretty good for my first try.

    My mom had some Disneyland slides and Mary Poppins ones. I think that the DL ones were of Frontierland. I loved looking at Disneyland way back in the day, I thought they were awesome.

    I still have all of my ViewMaster reels from the early -late 70's. I only have 2 three-paks of Disneyland ones. I have one for Tomorrowland and one of the America On Parade parade from 1976.

    Great Idea! Especially since they have recently re-released the Viewmaster.

    FYI:
    3D pairs are still around, this is a perfect one. Slightly cross your eyes in that picture, and focus each eye on it's picture. You can see it in 3D.

    Re: Remember the Disneyland Viewmaster 3D Reels??

    I collect viewmasters and viewmaster reels. I have several complete mint sets from Disneyland, but they're in storage and I don't have a master list. The old viewmasters from the 30's through theearly 60's were the best. They magnified much better than the later models (from the 90's on, there was practically no magnification whatsoever). I have yet to purchase the new design, but I have looked through them and I see they're bringing back some magnification, and the light gathering of the new design is great in that you don't point the viewer up to the light, but the top of the viewer is where the light source comes from.

    Ok, I know I'm getting geeky, so I'll stop. But I need to clear up Monorail Man's post in that Viewmaster have never been out of production, so they have not 're-released' the viewmaster, they've just come up with a new design.

    I remember having them!!
    One that has stuck out in my mind all these years is the IASW reel. It really felt like you were on the ride!! My favorite part of the ride is still the girls in the tulips when you are going thru Holland!
    Mainly because that was one of the pics on the reel.
