Up for sale here is an incredibly scarce collection of Disney World preview memorabilia issued in 1971. My grandmother was a longtime Disney employee and I recently came across this collection that she had kept. Outer Walt Disney World pamphlet has stain to bottom as shown, but it does not effect the material within. Stated on pamphlet rear page that All photographs contained in this kit are Walt Disney Productions. Included in the kit are the following items. A pristine copy of the “Preview Edition” Walt Disney World full color booklet. Features countless photographs of early looks at the park and Disney himself. A new concept in vacation lands. 20 page booklet, very rare itself in any condition. Folding 11×14 floor plans for the Walt Disney World Contemporary Resort Hotel, including the Site Plan, Section Plan, Grand Republic Ballroom & Meeting Rooms, Ballroom of the Americas, Top of the World Restaurant & Lounge and Room at the Top Meeting Rooms, Sunshine State Exhibitorium, Lobby Level, Americas Level, The Executive Level, Grand Canyon Concourse, Typical Guest Room Floor (Tower Building Floors 5 thru 12), Typical Guest Room Floor (Bayside North), Typical Guest Room Floor (Bayside South) and the Suite Floor (14th Floor), a total of fourteen maps. A pristine copy of Volume 2, Issue 1 of Walt Disney World News, folded but with no problems. A 8×11 map of how Disney sits alongside the surrounding areas. A chart of the quantity of the facilities available at areas around the park. A ten-page packet (was once stapled in top corner like others shown, now loose) detailing all the accoutrements available for conventions, including supplies available in each of the specific areas of the park, hirable services including rates per hours and available workers, excursion options and a local directory. A blank two-page survey from the Walt Disney World Photography Department on Walt Disney World Co. A two-page “Suggested Release Format Concerning Your Meeting at Walt Disney World”. A 6-page stapled “News from Walt Disney World” headlined “Walt Disney World Becomes New Convention Capital”. Three pieces of booking related material including an envelope advertising “A Motion Picture Preview of Walt Disney World” and two forms for convention, meeting and hotel reservations. Also included are eight 8×10 black & white glossy artist’s renderings of different areas of the park. While you can occasionally find other copies of the material listed above, these photographs are impossible to find in any condition. Photos are very slightly bent but not in a way that creases the graphics of the photos. Could very easily be corrected with framing or pressing. Photos have no rips or tears. Beyond rare, these phenomenal artist’s renderings show the following park areas. The “Phase One” overview of the park, listing several “future sites, ” there is a bit of weathering to the right side that does not affect display. “Fun Aplenty” waterskiing lady art. “Silent Ride” monorail art. “Walt Disney World” overlook of the 2,500 acre grounds and early look at the golf course and bay. “Water Paradise” beach front graphics with families and sailboat art. “Golfing Challenge” man at the tee art. “Recreation Galore” man in sailboat art. “For the Young at Heart” Cinderella’s Castle graphics. This phenomenal collection of Disney World memorabilia may not be seen again, these kits get scarcer and scarcer each time one leaves the market. So few of the complete kits made it through the years. This would be an excellent addition or centerpiece to any Disney lover’s collection. The photos would all look sensational framed.
