WDW Water Transportation

Great photos of water tranportion on Seven Seas Lagoon and on Bay Lake from WDW Fan Boy Brett. In the third photo we see Discovery Island (which may have still been Treasure Island when this was taken) and I believe a weee bit of River Country in the distant background. The second photo is what really catches my attention. Way back when various costumed characters would water ski. This is a very rare shot of the little motor boat, characters, and crew leaving the dock for another water ski run. Read more about this zany extinct tradition at the great Main Street Gazette and at the great DisneyShawn blog.

America on Parade- 1976

 

America on Parade was a celebration of American history as the nation was celebrating its Bicentennial. The parade ran at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World from the summer of 1975 through the summer of 1976. Kelly Kellum shares these excellent photos taken in Liberty Square (fitting!) at Magic Kingdom. The parks were extra patriotic at this time. Red, white, and blue banners and other decorations were placed all over. 

Notice one of the "big dolls"? This parade was the origin of the somewhat odd "EPCOT Pageant Dolls" or "People of the World" who walked (and blinked!) around World Showcase.
