Well, it took me all morning and most of the afternoon, but I started and now (sadly) have come to the end of this GREAT thread! Thanks everyone for the memories today! I have laughed and cried to your photos and comments!

My first visit to MK was in 1975 when I was 2, and I have such wonderful memories of my most favorite place with my family. Both of my parents have passed away (this will be the first Mother's Day without my mom), but this thread has warmed my heart and soul by bringing me right back to my childhood and being with them at Disney.

I cannot wait to dig through my old photos this weekend!! Keep posting everyone!!

1985

Here are a few from the new addition to WDW, Epcot and its Future World!

Spaceship Earth



The Land



Horizons!!!



An actual line outside of Universe of Energy



We were some fashionistas!



Looking to Imagination (remember that playground they had on the second floor? LOVED IT!)



One of the activities in the Imagination pavillion was "lucky participants" (such as my sister and cousin, far left) acting on a blue screen



They were giants and on-screen, they looked like this as they terrorized some Medieval guys.

OMG, that's so funny!

Here's a couple...

The one of my brother trying to remove Tigger's head is from 88, and Tigger didn't even attack (the mess in the news a weeks ago).
The other is MGM: note my hand on Jessica and my girlfriend's (now wife's) expression...

This is summer 1990, when the Dolphin was new.
"Welcome to our room!"
Don't mind the crazy left over 80's fashion!



Main Street 1992, this is how I always remember it, with lots of trees!


Pardon the photos of photos.

One Year Anniversary of Thread!

Thank you for sharing all your memories in this thread. When I had the idea for starting this thread I thought surely there would be several other people who shared the same fever or nostalgia. Thanks to all who have contributed!

I just LOVE looking at all these old pictures! I need to stop trying to find myself in them though!

My Dad got out some of our old slides last night, and there were some Disney pictures from way back when. Someone posted some pictures of slides on here that turned out really well, but I am having trouble finding the post as to how he did it.

Believe it or not, these were *not* digitized via a transparency scanner. Instead, I projected them onto a 20" X 30" piece of FoamCore, and photographed the projected image with my Nikon D50. The results exceeded my expectations and I judge them to be as good, if not better, than what I could do with my (older) flatbed scanner, and MUCH MUCH faster!

Those posted here are just a few of the slides from that time period. A good many of the others are Instamatic 110 format, and the film is T-I-N-Y. I'll give those a shot this weekend and see what I can come up with.

I have dozens of Carousels of slides from vacations here, there, and yon, from about the early 80's, and I hope to use this little shortcut to convert them all to digital.

~YEKCIM
Yeah! I found the post! I just read how you did it to my son, so I'll get him on the job of taking the pictures of slides!

I found a few:

This is my dh (dbf then though!) on his first ever trip to Disney World in December of 1986 at the ripe old age of 26! How can someone go through life that long without going to Disney???


These aren't so old, 1997, I believe:
Corey playing in the fountain at the Imagination Pavillion


--------------------------------------
These are from 1999:

Corey in the parade, wearing grey shirt and black shorts.



Corey in those Rockets in Tomorrowland, 1997ish


--------------------------------------------
I like these last pictures, because they were taken May 7, 1997, one year to the day before our beautiful daughter, Arminda was born:

Painting the water tower. I believe they were repainting it white, after having had spots on it to commemorate the opening of the 101 Dalmations live action movie.


Toy Story Parade at MGM:


Trams! OOH!

Ok, I definitely have to figure out how to post pics. And when i do, I'm scanning and posting some of my old pics, and my mom's first trip the year WDW opened!

Looking at old photos makes me miss the old rides!

Gotta love the short Mickey shirt my brother was wearing!


Big Thunder Mountain Railroad!


Totally 80's!


That's me gasping and covering my mouth..! I wish I knew why!


Not sure if this is Chip or Dale...
