Walt Disney World Holiday Planner – Part Two

The Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios
.
Each section of this video is introduced with a ‘title card’ of sorts. As you will see, a lot of the design style is more rooted in the 1980’s than 1996 when the video was released.
.
Let’s begin with The Magic Kingdom:
.
.
.
Somewhere between Mickey’s Birthdayland and Mickey’s Toon Town Fair
.
Many of the attractions in this video have changed over the years, with new ones coming and old ones leaving. This Land changed many times and then, just recently, vanished for all time to make way for the expanded Fantasyland.
.
.
The dreaded Castle Float and Cake Castle
.
The Castle Float started here, but has been reused in almost every WDW parade since. By simply changing the banner, or by adding some new trinket, the old Castle Float is ‘new’ again. And again. And again!
.
The Cake Castle also has its detractors. I just wish I had have seen it for myself to judge whether it was really that bad.
.
.
Hot Tips
.
Each section has one or two Hot Tip cards, like this one. A Cast Member gives you interesting tips on the Park being covered, which are spelled out for you on the right of the screen. The most interesting tip here is to tour the Park in a clockwise direction. It probably would decrease congestion if we all did that!
.
.
.
Great anamatic of the Tower of Terror
.
.
.

You can’t have too many Hot Tips!

.
So be sure to return tomorrow at 6AM as our 1996 tour continues with EPCOT.
