    Ohhh love love LOVE this thread!!!!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: WDW: Old Photos and Ephemera Thread

    Hey, Micechatters, I am SEEKING YOUR HELP in finding a picture of a sign from Walt Disney World's Polynesian Resort that says "NEWS FROM CIVILIZATION." I'd love to either find and buy the original (budget permitting) or else get a picture and re-create it. It was a newsstand and bookstore on the ground floor of the lobby, later called "News From Polynesia" and reportedly located where the Wyland Gallery is now.

    News from Civilization - WDWHistory

    Any clues please post here. Thanks in advance.

    And, to contribute to the photos and ephemera, here is a picture of the old Adventureland Veranda at WDW, where you could enjoy Key Lime Pie while watching the Swan Boats float by. (The retaurant and the boats are both now extinct.)

    Re: WDW: Old Photos and Ephemera Thread

    I love the Discovery Island photo. When I first visited the Walt Disney World resort, as a kid from a small town in Idaho, this was my favorite part of our vacation. To me it was a quite space away from the crowds, yet it was full of disney magic, and it was a great place to get close to animals.

    Re: WDW: Old Photos and Ephemera Thread

    Thank you all again for the feedback!

    For today, we are going on a little trip focusing on the Magic Kingdom.


    Cousin Orville still up to his usual routine in the Carousel of Progress.


    Enchanted Tiki Room structure as night sets in.


    Shopping in Caribbean Plaza


    And lastly, for my money, almost nothing beats night at the Haunted Mansion. Can practically hear the wolf howling in the distance now, as a matter of fact....

    Re: WDW: Old Photos and Ephemera Thread

    I love this thread, had to dig out some of my old pics.

    The following photos were taken in 1979:

    The view across the pond, where is now the Grand Floridian.


    The old Skyway station in Fantasyland, when it was operational:


    Adventureland before Aladdin




    Cinderellas Castle, when there were still trees in the hub.


    Space Mountain before..well, everything. LOL


    Main Street Station/Entrance


    Main Street


    I'll post more pics once I get them all uploaded.
