Magic Kingdom 1979 Home Video

This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the Magic Kingdom. I thought I’d spend a little time surfing through vintage home video of the park to celebrate. Lots of great stuff out there, but I’m sharing this one today because of a unique coincidence. You see the park has just announced that as part of the new Fantasyland, it will be opening a new mini-land called “Storybook Circus” with the centerpiece being a new two-ring Dumbo circus.

As it turns out the parade in 1979 was called “Dumbo’s Circus Parade” and the floats and characters all have that Casey Junior/Dumbo Circus feel. That was just too good not to share. Might make some good research material for Storybook Circus too.
