    Age of this picture?

    Hey guys, just found this picture taken from the contemporary roof on a site with a bunch of WDW wallpapers and I cant figure out when it was taken, I'm guessing early to mid 80's? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks




    Oh yeah, never posted a pic before so here goes.....

    I would guess early 80's or even maybe late 70's based on the quality of the photograph and the lack of certain rides...neat pic

    I'm guessing mid-late 70's, based on the limited amount I can see from the photo. Star Jets opened on November 28, 1974 during the second phase of expansion at Walt Disney World's Tomorrowland

    Unfortunately, I can't see the back of the original north building to see whether the building's expansion was complete or any other visual cues I van use.

    Where is the pic from??

    I also agree that this was taken in the mid to late 70's, mainly by picture quality and the looks of Tomorrowland.

    I am going to say it was taken sometime after 1971 and sometime before 2007.

    star jets opened as astro orbiter in 1994, just to reassure that it isnt recent (excluding the fact that the castle isnt gold or under construction and the quality of the picture). so really this comment had no impact on the outcome of this question!

    good job, eric!
