  • 1974 Tomorrowland Construction 8mm Film

    Per figment1986's request in his Skyway thread...here's some Super 8 Sound Film (this was before Video Camcorders) of the Phase Two Tomorrowland construction of 1974.

    You'll see Space Mountain being built, it's crane, stainless steel cap, a quick shot inside as the steam train passed it, and also some brief exterior shots of the PeopleMover station & tracks, and the COP's roof.

    You may also notice some quick shots of the exterior of long-gone attractions such as Monsanto's "Magic Carpet Round The World," Eastern Airline's "If You Had Wings" and "Fight To The Moon" ...all of which were up and running as part of the earlier first phase of Tomorrowland.

    It's a Windows Media Player file, and if you don't already have that program on your computer, you can download it for free from Microsoft's web site for PCs and Macs.

    Enjoy!

        Wow - that was great! Thanks for sharing that. I went quite a bit back in the early days, but it's cool to see what it looked like back then again. One of these days when I visit my parents I'll have to dig through the old slides for some pictures of the early days.

                Identical to me!

                We were on a 4yr cycle for WDW trips. So I got to go at 4, 8, 12, then we got to go more often

                  I totally need to take those pic from '78 to work and scan them so I can post them here. Lots of pics of the Mickey's 50th birthday parade.

                        And my first visit to WDW was also in 1978!

                              I know this is an old thread - but I just discovered it. Cool home movies - and with sound! Very advanced for 1974! I love seeing Space Mt still under cosntruction like that.
