whats better than gold? thats what this thread is.
what replaced the Adventureland Veranda? or is it now just a closed off building?
Here's a few of mine -
Late 80s? Main Street (with trees!)
Indy Speedway '87
Liberty belle circa '76

Old Space Mountain ride vehicles (84?)
Thank you Laura! I love the old Space Mountain Costumes! lol
Those are very good, thank you! I too like the Space Mountain one.
Here are today's images:

Thank you SO much for these photos - for the life of me I just can't remember that Dreamflight attraction!!
If you have more photos, I anxiously await them..
especially if you have any Tapestry of Nations ones..
I don't know that I ever actually rode Dreamflight, but I definitely remember riding "If You Had Wings" from my childhood. I loved that ride. We'd ride it over and over because it was always a walk-on.
Here's more of that beautiful collage behind the Kodak Picture Center
Taken in 1999
2004 The Wand
2005 Expedition Everest Construction
Thanks for the great pics of that mural. I was going to look for mine but yours are much better. I think this was in the waiting area for The Walt Disney Story film, right? I loved this enough when I went in 1979 as a 7 year old that I had my picture taken in front of it. I see they kept it updated until at least 1986 (The Great Mouse Detective seems to be the most recent addition in your picture.) It's too bad you can't see it any more.
One thing though. Looking at it as an adult, I think a lot of the figures look a bit off. They are kind of flat and a lot of them have the wrong color scheme. It's still great to see all the characters in one place though. Maybe someday they'll update it and fix the color problems and we'll be able to view it again. I won't hold my breath but it would be nice.
Awesome thread!! Thank you for including WDW in the ephemera series!
I'd give almost anything to be able to see that mural in person and get some photos of it. My faves on there are Tod & Copper from The Fox and the Hound (my all-time fave Disney movie).
Not sure if that helps you. LOL
Here is a pic of those books, you can pick them up at most thrift stores or garage sales now a days.
