Vintage Magic Kingdom Board Game Joins Vault Collection
The 1972 “A Visit to Walt Disney World” board game debuted as part of the incredible Vault Collection. The vintage game originally hit shelves just a few months after Walt Disney World Resort’s opening on October 1, 1971. This new release brings another nostalgic touch to the incredible wealth of merchandise offerings in the Vault Collection, celebrating the resort’s 50th anniversary festivities.
Spotted today at Marketplace Co-op at Disney Springs, the game features miniature replicas of classic Magic Kingdom attractions, including the Haunted Mansion, the Mad Tea Party, the Walt Disney World Railroad, and of course, the monorail. The original game also highlighted a few attractions long gone, including the submarine ride honoring the classic film, “20,000 Leauges Under the Sea.”
Using one of six classic characters to mark their moves, players travel throughout all of the theme lands in the park during the whimsical game. To add to the fun, the board game also doubles as a replica of “the most magical place on Earth,” once players have completed the assembly.
The eclectic Vault Collection is just one of many merchandise lines released for “The World’s Most Magical Celebration.” Due to the game’s inclusion in the collection, there is a limit of only two items per guest at time of purchase.
The Hasbro-released board game retails for $39.99. Spotted tonight at the Co-Op, items within the Vault Collection also appear at the Main Street Cinema on Main Street U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom.
New Vault Releases
Earlier today, MickeyBloggers popped by the Main Street Cinema to check out a new loungewear set that also debuted today in the Vault collection. The bold colored sweatshirt celebrates the park’s first anniversary, Oct. 1, 1972, which seemed fitting for the beginning of the new year.
With so much still to come in 2022 in honor of the resort’s important milestone, we cannot wait to not only see what is next for Vault Collection merchandise but also to experience the abundance of magic throughout Walt Disney World Resort as the year continues.
