This is a copy of the Walt Disney World News that we received during our stay at the Contemporary Resort in June, 1979. It’s wonderful to see all of the other offerings besides the Magic Kingdom that the “World” had to offer. It seems so much more relaxing than it is today. And it wasn’t all about the family; it clearly showcases things for adults to do on their own after a day at the parks. Send the kids to the Mouseketeer Clubhouse and go out and have fun–but don’t forget to pick them up by 11:30 p.m.!
And oh, what I wouldn’t give for a recording of the WDW Information Station on channel 5. My sister and I can still sing the theme song. If anyone has a copy of it or can let me know where I might be able to find it, please let me know in the comments. (I’ve searched on MouseBits, and it’s not available there. But MouseBits has plenty of other wonderful audio and video from the parks. I highly recommend it.)
