Daily Figment 103 - Magic Kingdom 1976

  1. Magic Kingdom Theme Park - As exciting as Disneyland, with six "lands" themed to the worlds of yesterday, tomorrow, adventure and fantasy: Main Street, U.S.A., Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland. There are special events, shops, restaurants, free entertainment and more than 45 major attractions, including The Hall of Presidents, Country Bear Jamboree, Mickey Mouse Revue, It's A Small World, The Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, Peter Pan's Flight, Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Moun­tain, Carousel of Progress and If You Had Wings. Towering Cinderella Castle is the beautiful visual center-piece of Walt Disney World's own world of fun.

Obviously, this is a close-up of the map that we looked at on Thursday. This section of the guidebook is dedicated the Magic Kingdom. Not the one we know today, but one from over twenty years ago. At this time, they were still using the ticketed system and not only do they publicize their biggest and most iconic rides, they mention If You Had Wings--a free attraction, sponsored by Eastern Airlines.

What in the world did people do before Splash Mountain, Epcot, the Disney Hollywood Studios and the Animal Kingdom? Sit in their hotel room all day?
