DDW Pic 1092. Way Back Wednesday - Fantasyland

Way Back Wednesday - Fantasyland
This week marks the 3 year anniversary of Digital Disney World's "Picture of the Day" segment. Nearly everyday since August 26th, 2011, I have been posting a picture that I've taken at Walt Disney World. I want to thank you all for continuing to enjoy this website. I get so many great comments and feedback and I certainly appreciate the support. I am always looking for new and interesting photo opportunities when I'm in "The World," and I hope to keep posting pictures for years to come.

With this three year milestone, I have decided to add a new segment to Digital Disney World. I recently had the opportunity to make digital copies of several hundred pictures from Disney trips that I took with my family as a child. They are from 5 different vacations from 1977 to 1988. Most of these photos were taken by my parents, and I thought it would be fun to post one every week as part of a new "Way Back Wednesday" (WBW) segment. As I was flipping through the pictures, I noticed many interesting shots that included extinct attractions and shows. Also, Magic Kingdom and Epcot had a much different "look" back then.

I decided to go with a classic Magic Kingdom shot for the first Way Back Wednesday installment. This is from my very first visit to Walt Disney World in 1977. You can see the 5 year old version of me standing with Pluto in Fantasyland. The queue to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is to the left and you can see a pole and wires from the Skyway to Tomorrowland over Pluto's head. Oh, and no comments about my cool 1970's man-purse I was wearing......it was a satchel!
