Walt Disney World 1972 Magic Kingdom Vacation
This is an 8mm home movie film from 1972 taken at Walt Disney World in Florida. The footage starts with the tram loading gates and a quick view of Disney’s Contemporary Resort. As the tourists head to the front gates of the Magic Kingdom, the Monorail Train can be seen on the elevated track. As the tram pulls in, Main Street USA can be seen in the background. As they exit, they head towards the front gates and into the Magic Kingdom for the first view of Cinderella’s Castle. The family then gets on the train at the Main Street U.S.A station and heads through Adventureland and Frontierland. It is early in the history of the park as there are many open spaces available for development. The film ends with one of the most iconic rides at WDW- It’s a Small World located in Fantasyland.
