EPCOT Construction from the Air

http://www.imagineeringdisney.comMore from this Domain

As I continue to dig through boxes of old Disney stuff to scan for our Gallery, I love finding things I’ve forgotten about. These sweet photos were taken from a small plane or helicopter during the construction of EPCOT Center, given to me by a friend years ago. (No, I was not in that plane but man I wish I had been!) I’d like to know when they were taken and I’m trying to figure that out. If any of you can decipher, let me know.

America Sings - Imagineering Disney

http://www.imagineeringdisney.comMore from this Domain

Think of Carousel of Progress meets Country Bear Jamboree meets American Adventure. It was hosted by an eagle named Sam, voiced by the great Burl Ives, and co-hosted by Ollie Owl. Shows ran from 1974-1988 in Tomorrowland's Carousel Theater, Disneyland. It replaced The Carousel of Progress which was moved to The Magic Kingdom in 1975.

Matterhorn for Magic Kingdom Fantasyland

http://www.imagineeringdisney.comMore from this Domain

I was talking with my pal Hoot the other day about how a Matterhorn mountain would fit perfectly in Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland. Disney talked about the idea decades ago. It was intended to go where Toontown is today. The latest rumors about the 'new Fantasyland' or 'Fantasyland Forest' say that some people at Disney are rethinking the whole thing.

I Say Give Us a Matterhorn!

Illustrated DonaldDuck - Imagineering Disney

http://www.imagineeringdisney.comMore from this Domain

I would wear this mountaineer Donald on a t-shirt, I would. I scanned these from a 1973 "Disney's Wonderful World of Knowledge" book. It's a picture book about animals- along the lines of Walt Disney's True Life Adventures films.

http://www.imagineeringdisney.comMore from this Domain

I’m still as opinionated about sequels as I ever was, but I’ve decided there are a few things that have to be taken into consideration for a sequel to be any good.

The Fantasy of Space Colony Living

http://www.imagineeringdisney.comMore from this Domain

Ultimate residential living could only mean one thing- life in the City of EPCOT. That is if you are on Earth. What about orbiting around the planet in a man-made rotating colony? THAT is the ultimate in future living, by golly. Better than living on the moon or even Mars itself.

Original Visions of CalArts | Imagineering Disney

http://www.imagineeringdisney.comMore from this Domain

I was floored when I found this. Not only is Bageerah (the great Sebastian Cabot) narrating this little gem, it's chock full of great mid-century modern artwork, renderings and concepts. It's produced in that classic Walt Disney live-action educational film style of the 50s and 60s. To add to it, this little beauty was long-lost in the CalArts archives, recently discovered, and posted not too long ago.

Surviving Pieces of Journey Into Imagination

http://www.imagineeringdisney.comMore from this Domain

The original Journey Into Imagination ride a quality, imaginative, creative, original, spectacular ride if I ever did see one. A few years back my ol' pal Hoot Gibson asked if I'd like pieces of the famous blimp! His wife, a lot like mine, valued space over dusty old iconic treasures.

Pirates of the Caribbean Like You've Never Seen It

http://www.imagineeringdisney.comMore from this Domain

A look at the masterpiece that is Pirates of the Caribbean-- the ride. For nothing more than a glance at the amazing artistry and ingenuity of some of the world's most memorable animatronics. These shots were taken long before there were Davy Jones projections and Johnny Depps. These specific photos have never been posted on the web until now.

As a boy I was entertained to no end by the cleverness that was Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress. Today I enjoy it just as much-- Laser discs and all.

If This Doesn't ScareYou...

http://www.imagineeringdisney.comMore from this Domain

"Nara Dreamland" is a cheap Disneyland ripoff that opened in 1961. It was closed in 2006— imagine that. Not only is it creepy for its current ghost town-like condition but it's terribly scary just how blatantly they ripped of Disneyland's design.
