Ok - I've finally managed to locate (free!) some of my old pictures from my parents' house!

Here's the original Captain Jack Sparrow! This was the ONLY time that we were growing up where my parents took a "cool" picture! I think it's around 1985 or so. Where the gift shop of PotC is now, there used to be a Photo area - Here's me (on the right) with my family - 22 years ago! (Love my mom's glasses - although I think they might be coming back in style!)



As for Horizons - It's what Mission:Space was before it was M:S! If you go to www dot wdwmagic dot com and do a search, you will find a lot of info! (Sorry, I cannot get it to post the site directly?!?)

Horizons was a showcase of how the future was going to look like. It was fun and one of my favorites. A family ride

Here is a pic of the pavillion before Wonders of Life was built.

Next year when dgd is 2 1/2, we WILL be bringing the stroller. How the world has changed!!

Great pics. Love this thread!!!!

Melanie, I can't believe that Frontierland Train Station!! I never remember that! Was it where the current parades end - to the left of Splash now?
Don Pancho, was Horizons where Mission Space is now?

My BIL's best friend works at Disney and he told us a while ago to listen at certain parts...This one part had an African-American guy astronaut and a white woman astronaut and if you listened very closely.......
but by the time we got back down there, they closed it!
BTW, that was another ride in which I enjoyed a lil' nappy (even when I was younger!)

Indyjammer you inspired me to find our pirate photo!
I believe this is from 1981. . . I must have been still wearing braces, as I am the only person hiding their teeth (on right).
