Photo Hunt Update

We bring you a few photos submitted to our Photo Hunt. Additionally we answer a few questions.

Any of these spark curiosity? Is there something you'd like to know more about? Let us know.



We've had a GREAT turnout so far. A big thanks to all who have submitted. Many of you have "hunted" for and found some fantastic old photos. We've yet to see a single bad or uninteresting photo submitted. Every one has been wonderful. Many of the photos at first glance appear quite “normal”. But looking twice brings forth details that rarely if ever show up online.

How many photos were submitted??

Hundreds. Many more than we expected.

Where were most the photos taken?

We’ve been somewhat surprised to see that the majority of the photos submitted (maybe 85%) were taken at Walt Disney World. This is a surprise because for some reason it seems that old Disneyland photos (perhaps because of it's older age) surface more often. Either way, we are thrilled with all the photos from Disneyland, Magic Kingdom, EPCOT Center, Disney-MGM Studios, and various resorts. Any Animal Kingdom photos floating around out there? Specifically of things that no longer exist? Or even some California Adventure Superstar Limo pics? Or old shots of the overseas parks?

Would it be ok to send videos?

YES. We would LOVE old video footage of the parks. We prefer links to videos you’ve already uploaded online. You can upload to Vimeo or YouTube or any other video hosting site and send us the link. Most of these sites are free and offer privacy if you don’t want strangers finding your footage.

Will the “Hunt” continue?

Yes. Keep the photos and videos coming. There will be not end date to the Photo Hunt. We look forward to using these little gems in our post for a very long time.

I'm trying desperately to identify where each of the above pictures was taken. I think I'm almost there.....

What if someone were to want to do a similar photo search on his or her blog............. would you mind?

January 13, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Absolutely. In fact we suggest you do!

I've noticed in true vintage pics, most crowds are less overweight than crowds currently. I think larger waistlines are the real reason 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea had to go. Most folks today simply wouldn't fit! In brand new attractions, I notice a significant difference in queue widths versus old attractions.
