I’d like to share with Disney fans an 8mm Disney family film my Grandpa took in the’70’s : I’ve been there twice. Once in the 70’s after this was shot when they were building Epcot. And once in 1989. fwiw my next door neighbor growing up in Ohio has worked at NASA for 25yrs and has lived in Orlando since then. His wife designed street signs for Disney ; Here’s the film. 8mm has a certain quality to it. 1970’s Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom FL 8mm Family Film

Outstanding! This is such an affirmation of Walt Disney World's permanence in American pop culture. About one minute into the film there's a girl playing the role of Alice from 'Alice In Wonderland.' Let's say she is 17 years old at the time of this film (which we might estimate to be around 1974 [?]). That would mean this woman would now be approaching her sixties.

Thanks for that look back through time.
