Vintage Disney Postcards with Written Messages

Guest Contributor: Nick Maglio
 
I picked these postcards up at the flea market a few weeks ago. They all feature Mickey Mouse at Walt Disney World.
.

We’ll start with this fun one, with Mickey, Goofy, and Pluto in front of Cinderella Castle.

.
 .
Holly was at Walt Disney World during Christmastime, 1979, and sent a postcard to her class. She was really rubbing it in when she tells them it’s Monday, and she is at Disney World while the rest of her schoolmates are apparently in school! Classic.
.
.
Next up we, we have the Chief Firemouse, which, I believe, is also from 1979.
.
.
This person is writing Carol to tell her she is spending time with cousins, and that it’s hot, but I can’t make out what month it is.
 .
.
The next card was never sent, and I’m not sure of the date.
.
 .
“Strike Up the Band”
“Drum Major Mickey Mouse leads the Walt Disney World Band down Main Street U.S.A. in one of the musical group’s daily performances.”
This leads one to believe that, at least at one point during the day, you’ll see Mickey Mouse leading the band. I am not sure if this ever happened, but I’d like to see it.
.
.
And finally, we have Mickey’s Collection, which is apparently pictures a collection of older cards, including the one above.
.
 .
It’s January 1991, and Aunt Freda is writing her family about her 2 week vacation. It’s January and it’s cold at Epcot Center, but at least she’s having a good time.
 .
.
We’ll be returning to Disney World in January, and whether it’s cold or not, I’m sure we’ll have a good time.
