Films: A Trip Back to 1971

As Walt Disney World continues to celebrate its 50th anniversary, we are pleased to share two restored videos from its earliest days of operation.

The first video explores Main Street USA, and the park-like setting of the early Magic Kingdom. There are some great shots of the parade, as well.


The second video is a bit longer, and is from December when the Magic Kingdom is well-decorated for Christmas. There are a few shots from right outside the gates, as well as pictures of topiaries inside and out the Magic Kingdom. A number of exterior shots from Liberty Square, Fantasyland, and the 20k Leagues Under the Sea attraction are included. Finally there are a number of views of the Contemporary resort pool area and Grand Canyon Concourse.
