This is a great thread! I'm really enjoying these pictures. They bring back some great memories. That mickey bar, I remember it! I was really young then but I remember it. I know I have pictures from the mid 70's and 80's but my scanner is broken. If I can find a way to post them, I will. Keep this thread going!!

That skyway looks so cool. I didn't even know it ever existed.

That is WDW. I remember it being like that when I was a kid.
I miss the old Fantasyland.

Once I visit home, I'll get all my old pictures.

Hi!

I just wanted to thank DonPacho for posting these pictures. My DH and I just love looking at the skyway ride. We have wanted to see pictures of it for so long because neither one of us remembers it. I wonder why they took it out of the park? The building that housed it looks so abandoned now. Seeing what it looked like is so cool.

This post-site is awsome!! I can't wait to see more pictures.

I think it was taken out due to an accident that a CM lost his life in. I am not sure if that is the sole reason, but I'm pretty sure it was related. It disappeared right after the accident.

I think the outfit that the CM is wearing in the Space Mountain picture above is hilarious!

1996:

The old snowspeeder and sail barge. A friend of mine worked on the construction of Lights, Motor, Action and said the snowspeeder is in a back part of the MGM lot and the construction crew used to play on it. (Fellow geeks: they treated it with respect, don't worry. )



Endor used to look very lush, you know, when they pretended it was Endor.



They also used to send out characters year-round. This picture was taken in September (actually taken by David Prowse's neighbors! they held the camera for me! YAY!) Note Endor Vendors in the background.



"Look Ma, in 12 years I'll be replaced by a look alike of that guy on 21 Jump Street!!!"
I don't know if they'll change the exterior, but I figured better safe than sorry. Not to mention I love that guy.
