    Wonders of Walt Disney World Tour



    This picture is from 1989 when I got to be part of this tour. It was for kids only... and if I remember right there was a very tight age limit on it... like between 10 and 13 or something like that. The tour focused a lot on taking pictures as you explored and putting them into a keepsake album to remember the fun. I found the little album and certificate I was given after the tour but just recently came across this shot of me in the waiting area.

    Anyone remember where this was (the waiting area for the tour)? Anyone else out there get the privilege of being able to do this tour as a kid?

    I went on a similar tour back in 1983 or 1984. It wasn't the same as yours, though. Mine was geared towards "entertainment" and was only for kids. We were taken backstage and while I don't remember much, I do remember that we got a book to take home. It is about 11x11 and it has a pink, hard cover. I will see if I can dig it out anywhere and get some more info on it. I know I still have it. I will have to poke around in my attic.

    Our little take home book (to put pictures in) was a pink hard covered book as well. Maybe the same tour. I don't remember much other than taking lots of pictures and going behind the scenes a bit.

    Yep you're right... but what's funny is it's almost like it didn't exist. I can't find record of it anywhere out there.

    I looked in my attic for my book, but I couldn't find it. I know I still have it somewhere and there are two more places to look. I WILL find it ..... eventually.

    I'm sort of in the same situation. I know I saw it when we moved in September so it's gotta be somewhere. Still, trying to find any record of it's existence on the net is impossible.

    It's a shame, really. I remembered enjoying the tour, and I vividly remember eating lunch at the Diamond Horseshoe. I also remember that our name tags were white Mickey ears cut from a satin-y fabric with our names hand written on the tag. I gotta find this book!

    I remember those tours. I still have all my books in the closet. 2 blue & 2 pink 1 hardcover & 1 Paperback each. What fun they were. I remember going to discovery island, then going out on the property somewhere & checking out some exotic birds & some gators. I could ramble on but.... times short.
    If we can dream it, we can do it!
