1983 Walt Disney World Vacation Guide

Hello. I found this old Vacation Guide from Disney World that is © 1983. It's got some interesting stuff in it. EPCOT CENTER had just opened October 1st 1982, so it was the big thang of the time. Understandably so, the park was pretty rad for the time. Today it's being devoured by Pixar and other attractions that have nothing at all to do what the original "Epcot travelers" would have seen and been a part of. Anyway, here's the images.

You'll need to click it to read it.

Look at the Rainbow Corridor in Journey to Imagination. Thought that was one of the coolest things ever when I was a kid.

I'd like to point out that this part of EPCOT CENTER still looks the same. I mean, you can go there today and see all these things. Which I think is wonderful.

I'd like to take a second to point everyone to EPCOT Central. It's extremely well written, well thought out, and just overall a site that gives Epcot the respect it deserves. (deserved?)
