VIDEO: This Retro Disney World Commerical Has Us Yearning For The Good Old Days!
A HUGE shutout to my fellow MickeyBlog writer John Bishop who came across a delightful vintage television commercial. With Walt Disney World gearing up to celebrate its 50th Anniversary having opened on October 1, 1971, it seemed only fitting to share this wonderful promo with you taken from the same year.
So get ready for some sepia-toned loveliness and be sure to thank John!

What I’m always struck by when watching these old promos is how much Disney World has changed over the years while somehow remaining the same!
Some of my favorite moments from the promo include a look at these stunning Mid-Century Modern trees at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
Here’s a very retro looking Mickey getting ready for a game of golf!
And who doesn’t ride Dumbo the Flying Elephant in a suit jacket and tie!? You can see the classic ride here in it’s old Fantasyland location!
Though our MickeyBloggers stumbled across this gem on Twitter, we hope that Disney dips into the archives over the course of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary year to share more awesome memories like this! You can’t help but smile!
Readers are encouraged to keep following along with MickeyBlog for more Walt Disney World news and updates.
