    Question Maps?

    Does anyone have any scanned in maps from when each park first opened to compare with today? There are some rides I have vague memories of from when I first went to Magic Kingdom and I can't even remember enough about them to say what they were let alone where.

    Jenn, I have a old booklet from the park from 1977 when i first went. Unfortunatley the book got wet and some of the pages are stuck together. I will locate it and see if there are any maps of lists of rides. it was only MK back then ( Epcot was being built then ). I actually found an old picture of me there on some beach area with a sunken boat stuck in the sand ( i don't remember what that was a part of, Maybe pirates of Carribean???? ) Do you remember that?.... does anyone?

    Have a Magical Day! Sharon

    I have EPCOT but it is very large and I haven't had the chance to photograph it yet. To my knowledge, they have never done large oversize maps of MGM nor AK. I have maps of those parks from the early brochures and publicity materials.

    looks like mostly newer ones on this page, but if you email him he may have some older ones archived.

    maps

    i would love to see them once you scan them and put them on your site. I remember being at Magic Kingdom when epcot was being built, I remember seeing the sphere half built from a distance, unfortunatley never actully got to epcot until 2003.

    I love the big blank section on the right where it says "Future Site of the Living Seas"! HAH!
