Making of: Walt Disney World

I absolutely LOVE old Disney construction footage and I consistently search high and low for some. I came across a few videos recently of the Magic Kingdom and the Contemporary Resort. Come on in and have a look!!!

Up first is some Magic Kingdom footage from the late 60's, early 70's. I love how we see the unfilled construction of the Seven Seas Lagoon:

Next up is what seems to be some old news footage of the Contemporary Resort Hotel (originally to be called Tempo Bay Hotel) construction and assembly of it's guest rooms which were built separately. We also see shots of the Magic Kingdom under construction from the top of the Contemporary. We see partially completed Main Street areas and Cinderella Castle. Shots of various attractions including Haunted Mansion, Swiss Family Robinson Tree house, Main Street USA, assembly of the Paddle Riverboat and Topiary Nursery:

All that hard work eventually lead to this wonderful moment:

And now for the Grand Finale:
