This slide set from November 1979 features the Magic Kingdom in all its autumn splendor. As always we’re treated to lots of pictures of the afternoon parade. Back then each year ushered in a new parade and “Dumbo’s Circus Parade” was the 1979 theme. It features scary clowns in a miniature fire engine, Donald Duck in his fortune telling getup, Dumbo in a burning firehouse and plenty of other interesting and unique parade floats not seen before or since.
A handful of on-ride Pirates of the Caribbean photos are here. You’ll also find the greatest kid in history enjoying an ice cream cone wearing his “Anchors Aweigh Florda” sailors cap. Then you’ll discover Mickey Mouse walking across a Magic Kingdom hub lawn, photographers in tow, with Dick Clark! You’ll spy an interesting shot of the outdoor seating at Pecos Bill’s, the Tomorrowland spires with their water rockets on full blast, Country Bear Jamboree’s Marquee after Frito-Lay exited leaving Pepsi as the sole sponsor (with a vintage logo to boot!).
There’s lots of goodies in here for your viewing pleasure.
