Digging through the archives, I discovered a few interesting pieces of Disney ephemera. The first to share, in celebration of the Walt Disney World Marathon, is the brochure and entry form for the first Walt Disney World (WDW) marathon.
Over the years I have collected so many pieces of artwork, collectibles, maps, brochures and more about the Disney Co., the Walt Disney World Resort and pretty much anything else to do with pop-culture and Mickey Mouse. As I build and expand the site, I will share many of those items here.
Items like these, IMHO, are a great time capsule. When you consider how long the Walt Disney World Resort has been a major factor in Central Florida making it the #1 worldwide tourist destination. These brochures, maps, etc. help define the times from: a design sensibility, social perspective and economic impact. I have plenty more items to share and hope you enjoy.
Also, if you are running the Walt Disney World Marathon this week – Good Luck! We’ll be there cheering you on.
