Restored Home Movie: Magic Kingdom Visit – 1970s

It’s a sunny start to this family’s day as they enter the Vacation Kingdom via the Ticket and Transportation Center and prepare to queue for the monorail. En route to the Magic Kingdom we get a nice aerial shot of the topiaries between the Contemporary Resort and the park. We then open to a generous 360 degree pan of Main Street before the parade makes its way through the crowd. There’s some great footage of Mickey marching with his band, Winnie the Pooh, the Three Little Pigs, as well as some almost-new-looking Main Street vehicles.

Moving into Adventureland we see the Swiss Family Treehouse as well as the sparse vegetation that used to be between it and most of Adventureland. The family then moves a bit north into Liberty Square with a nice shot of an absolutely packed Admiral Joe Fowler Riverboat. Soon we are back in Adventureland on board a Jungle Cruise boat, viewing some pristine animatronics (especially those hippos!), before moving up behind Cinderella’s Castle. There’s another parade making its way past the Carousel while a crowd looks on. The film closes with a view from behind the Castle looking out to Liberty Square.

What’s with the creepy dude (Disney employee) at the 1:04 mark who feels like he’s gotta touch everybody ?
