Vintage Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort

18 Jul

After receiving such positive feedback from the vintage photos I shared yesterday for Disneyland’s 58th Anniversary, I decided to dig through the Disney Parks Blog Archives for a look at Walt Disney World. And since we are celebrating Christmas in July, these vintage Walt Disney World photos give us a nostalgic look back at past holiday seasons.

Magic Kingdom Park has celebrated the holidays with a Christmas Parade since opening in 1971. Here's a look at the parade back in 1976 traveling down Main Street, U.S.A.

While the parade’s name has varied through the years, one thing has always remained the same – the holiday cheer it brings to guests every holiday season.
