Walt Disney World Pop-Up Book

Guest Contributor: Nick Maglio
A Fun Filled Visit to Walt Disney World with Mickey Mouse: A Hallmark Pop-Up Book.
..

Like much of my collection, I cannot recall when and where I got this book. It’s copyright is 1972.
.
It isn’t in the best condition, with stains and tape marks, but the pop-ups all work pretty well.
.

.
Our first pop-up is the Ferry Boat to the Magic Kingdom. But that isn’t how we are getting to the park.
..
We’re taking the Monorail with Mickey. Lift the door tab, and Mickey gets on board.
.
Interestingly, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea has been reduced to just “Submarine Voyage” here. There is a rotating wheel that rotates and shows wreckage, treasure and sea life.
.
.
Next, the Country Bear Jamboree pop-up.

..
It’s a Small World. Pull the tab on the right, and the drummer drums while the camel nods in unison.
.
The Mad Tea Party. pull the tab to see Mickey “Spin”. On one side he’s smiling, on the other, he looks as if he may be ill, which is the same reaction I have as this ride goes on.
.
.
A Jungle Cruise pop-up.
.
.
The Mickey Mouse Revue, which was housed in the space that is now home to Mickey’s PhilharMagic. Pull the tabs and the whole gang rocks out while Mickey orchestrates.
..
The Swiss Family Tree House. Lift the flap and see the Jungle Cruise Ruins in the distance.
Not very exciting.
.
Maybe the creator of this book was lulling you into a false sense of security, and then, wham!
Pull the tab on the Haunted Mansion page, and a ghost pops up! Thrilling.
..
And to cap off a fun filled day at the park with Mickey, fireworks over Cinderella’s Castle.
.
.
I hope you enjoyed your time with Mickey Mouse, and the Disney Nouns Pop-up Blog!

    Thank you, Gary, I'm really glad that I could bring back a happy memory for you! If I can brighten just one person's day, it makes writing these posts worthwhile.

    Wow! I used to have this book! You've just provided me with a huge flashback! As soon as I saw the Mickey / Monorail picture, I felt as if I was 6 years old again. Thanks for posting all the pages!
