Recently, a family friend decided to downsize and cleared out her house. She found a shoebox full of Walt Disney World and Disneyland ephemera, most of it from a family trip in December 1971.
She remembered that I love Disney. I especially love vintage Disney.
I’ve never been an ephemera collector. I normally toss paper items in the recycling bin as soon as I’m done with them. But most of this stuff is from Walt Disney World’s first holiday season. I’ve never seen anything like this before, and am sharing these pictures so other Disney fans can see them too.
I have other items, but have omitted them from this post to keep it a reasonable length. If you’d like to see the rest of my pictures, including close-ups of the reproduction 1971 map, visit my Flickr album. (I may post some of these items for sale; contact me if interested.)
I will be posting the vintage Disneyland items, circa 1964, in a separate entry.
