  • [Other] A Symposium of Walt Disney World History, Volume 1: the Magic Kingdom Park.

    This Thread discusses the History of Walt Disney World's first theme park, in detail, with photos, videos and posts.


    For the beginning, we look at the attractions that used to be (or still are) at Fantasyland in these three Videos by Martin titled: Fantasyland WDW - a History;

    EDIT: I am not the only one has to share, you can share too! So, please, share something related to MK's History!

        Well, I wished I got a chance to see the Mickey Mouse Revue in person, but just seeing this in the video just made me well-up in tears. Here's a five blog posts (with photos) about this much beloved attraction:

          I throughly enjoyed those. Thank you. And it confirmed that I did infact suffer from False memory. I really did think the pre 2005 refurbishment IASW use to que as it now does, until I got a hostile reponse from saying so. I didn't stick to my guns on that, false memory happens to everyone. My mother once remember that IMAX screens in Horizons where part of the People Mover when it went into space mountain. I think she mixed up DL's speed tunnel..... but away So couldn't find any visual confirmation but this was it. I was wrong.

              Here is an article from "Widen Your World" on the Legendary 20K:

                I thoroughly enjoyed those films - they reminded me of attractions that I miss and they also reminded me that sometimes, it's not so bad to lose some of them. I loved the skyway cars and Mr Toad. I never liked 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and was never particularly bothered about it's demise. Over the years I thought maybe I'd been too harsh on that attraction - this film reminded me of why I didn't like it. But I love the film footage from the skycars over the park - great!

                    great to see the "Mickey Mouse Revue"! I vaguely remember seeing this as a youth when I was at the park with family. Also have photos of it in a large souvenier book from the late 70's.

                    It's interesting to see many obscure characters highlighted in the 'orchestra'. Very unusual but appreciated!

                      I know. Your welcome!

                      Here's more on Mickey Mouse Revue and the other Fantasyland attractions that are gone from Walt Dated World:

                      Mickey Mouse Revue

                      20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

                      Dumbo, The Flying Elephant

                      Mr. Toad's Wild Ride

                      Skyway to Tomorrowland

                      Snow White's Scary Adventures: Original Ride

                      and the last one may be a bit recent, but it's gone and there is a better version of this show in WDW, :

                      Legend of the Lion King

                              Wow that brought back a ton of memories.

                              My dad loved the 20k ride. I remember the giant squid part scared the crap out of me a a little ankle biter. I never wanted to go on that ride because of it, so my dad would sometimes go alone while my mom waited with me.

                              Mr Toad! I loved that borderline insane ride. I actually scored one of those "vintage" Mr Toad shirts at the Disney outlet on International Drive last month on sale. I've worn it to Busch Gardens (of all places) twice now and have received a lot of comments on it.

                              OMG... Mickey Mouse Revue! First time I saw this was 1978. I was 3 and we hadn't seen Mickey in the park yet. Of course 3 year old me thought AA Mickey was the real deal and at the end of the show when AA Mickey said "Thanks for coming" and the curtain closed, the theatre was silent except for me, who belted out at the top of my lungs, "MICKEY! MICKEY! DON'T GOOOOO!!!" The WHOLE THEATRE busted out laughing and my parents wanted to DIE! :lmao: Oh yeah and I remember during the Three Caballeros part, Pachito firing his pistols scared me.
