WDW Transport History

by on Mar.10, 2007, under Non-Theme-Park, Walt Disney World

WDW Transport – A History from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

The history of WDWs Monorails, roads, busses and watercraft. Includes World Drive circa 1990 with the original, new, Disney MGM junctions, brown signs and original MK Auto plaza. Orange and brown parking trams are in fashion, as is a bland T&TC. Journey over Seven Seas Lagoon on the Magic Kingdom I with Jack Wagner, and around it – to and from the MK – in a MkIV monorail cab with Jack too. Ride in the cab to EPCOT Center, and take a brown tram back to the MK lot and to Futureworld. See the original Monorail plans from 1970, and 1975`s expansions, and also see the history of the Friendships, WDWs watercraft on Seven Seas and Bay Lake, Lake Buena Vista and Crescent Lakes waterways, and the bus fleet.

Future World 1990 Walkaround

by on Apr.21, 2005, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

Future World 1990 Walkaround from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Futureworld 90 – a walk around; I`ve wanted to do something like this for a while. I have so many little clips from June 1990 on tape I wanted to get them all together, you could call this EPCOT Center: everything BUT the attractions.

Original autoplaza
Mark IV in the cab on the Futureworld loop
Original entrance plaza, fountains, Communicore and Earthstation exteriors
a walk around Futureworld East
Inside Wonders of Life
Future Corps – on the World of Motion path (starting) and the 10am fountain performance
11am character breakfast greeting inside The Odyssey (Clap you hands music… and Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Chip & Dale in their silver space outfits) on stage and in the resteraunt
Surprise in the Skies highlights from 1992
A walk around the Imagination gardens, Captain EO`s entrance and inside the large pyramid
Walk into the original Land pavilion and take the escalator down (topical!)
Outside the Living Seas
Futureworld 90 at night
and general sights, sounds, signs and views of how EPCOT Center used to be.

All set to appropiate music (I had a good dig into my collection)
