On my latest trip to Walt Disney World I saw a video of abandoned Disney stuff and one of them was the old Walt Disney World preview center. It was so close to our hotel and the Disney parks I had to go, so check out a little history and some of the photos I took of myself at the Preview Center below! Now it’s called the Amateur Athletic Union but it still looks like the preview center and even has a huge Mickey on the inside.
Here’s a little history about it below:
In mid-January, 1970, the Walt Disney World Preview Center became the first building on WDW property to be opened to the public. Near the intersection of Interstate 4 and State Road 535, the thoroughly modern glass, concrete and steel structure was situated on the southern shoreline of Lake Buena Vista along the then-quiet Preview Boulevard. This roadway would later become Hotel Plaza Boulevard, a main artery serving traffic to the WDW Village and a gathering of hotels. Hit Read More to see my full gallery
Check out this video I found on Disney Tokyo that is from one of my favorite Vloggers (user: Thingamavlogs) check them out if you haven’t, these guys n gals check out all the latest cool stuff at Disneyland as well as Tokyo Disney most recently. Some of the food items here have blown my mind and wish Disney World in the USA would pick up their theme game because Tokyo Disney takes to all new level, need to book a trip here ASAP. If you want to see what Disney looks like on drugs basically and upping their game check it out.
So the 1964 World’s Fair is the only one that had Walt Disney attractions when Walt was alive. I’ve been looking through vintage photos and videos of the fair and it’ pretty awesome. You understand where Walt got a lot of his ideas for Disneyland/World and how they have progressed today. There’s currently a world fair going on to this day called “Expo 2015” but it’s nothing like the 1964 fair which was hailed as the greatest worlds fair ever. Check out this YouTube video of the fair
The storybook town of Hallstatt in central Austria enjoys a gorgeous setting on the bank of the Hallstätter See, between the pristine lake and a lush mountain that rises dramatically from the water’s edge. A history of salt mining dating back thousands of years has translated into enduring prosperity for the town, which is most evident in the beautiful square ringed with ivy-covered buildings.
Saw the movie “the Way” and about a father who travels the Camino De Santiago in Spain and I was like yea I gotta try this. The view, the photography options and the random wanderlust adventures seems like a great thing to put on a bucket list of sorts. If you haven’t seen the movie go check it out or download it!
The Camino de Santiago, also known by the English names Way of St. James, St. James’s Way, St. James’s Path, St. James’s Trail, Route of Santiago de Compostela, and Road to Santiago, is the name of any of the pilgrimage routes (most commonly the Camino Francés or French route) to the shrine of the apostle St. James the Great in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain, where tradition has it that the remains of the saint are buried. Many take up this route as a form of spiritual path or retreat for their spiritual growth.
