Walt Disney World Trip-1973

As I mentioned previously, the family trips to Walt Disney World as a kid had a big influence on me growing up. Below is an article about Walt Disney World that appeared in some magazine that I got as a kid in grade school. I'm sure that this was the beginning of me bugging my parents about going to Walt Disney World some day.


It's interesting to note that the article above has Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle in the background, not the Magic Kingdom's Cinderella's Castle in Walt Disney World.

Next is the first brochure for Walt Disney World I have, dated 1973:


I assume this means that my first trip to Walt Disney World was in 1973, but I can't remember for sure.

I have been dreaming up theme parks as long as I remember. I grew up going to Walt Disney World about once a year, and it captivated me so much that I started sketching ideas for theme parks of my own. Initially, these ideas were theme parks to be put in my home state, West Virginia, but throughout the years, I thought of many ideas for parks not specifically for West Virginia. Interspersed throughout the many theme park ideas, I also thought of stories that could be for movies and other media. In reality, all of these ideas are about creating worlds of your own that you can tell a story through.

I will show some of these ideas on this blog periodically, as well as some personal thoughts occasionally. If you like entertainment design and, especially, theme park design, I hope you will like what you see here!
