Throwback Thursday – the Magic Kingdom 1975 Home Video


My first visit to Walt Disney World was in 1997. That means I missed on on much of the resort’s early history. One of the attractions I never got to experience was the Swan Boats around the hub and Cinderella Castle moat. Thanks to a newly restored home video from 1975, I now know what I missed.

There’s also more great retro-magic on the video, including a pre-Splash Mountain Frontierland Railroad station, The Pearly Band on Main Street, and some parade action. Check out those costumes for the Main Street band. I wish they’d bring back that Steel Drum band in Adventureland too.

How about that dancing Mickey Mouse? When did you first visit Walt Disney World?
