    1970's Commercial - Disney World Hotels & US Steel



    I came across this video today and thought I'd like to share it with you guys. I am unsure what it really is, but to me it either seems like a commercial for the Walt Disney World Contemporary Resort or a commercial for United States Steel. Either way, it a video showing off some really neat things, mainly shots of the hotel during construction. In the video, they show a little bit at how the hotel was made. Rooms were pre-built in block units (With air conditioning and sliding doors built right in!) and shipped to Florida to be assembled into the hotel. This will be a revolutionary new way to create schools, hospitals, and other structures. And remember, all the materials were supplied by U.S. Steel and divisions!

    Thanks for sharing. It is an interesting video.

    BTW they assembled the rooms onsite at WDW. The Poly was the other hotel built like this at WDW.

    Although I'd heard about this and seen one or two stills of the pre-fab rooms, this is the only footage I've seen of it in motion. Nice. Thanks!

    Thanks, Bongo!
    That made me want to time travel back to the early 70s.
