Postcards from the Past

I found some old souvenir postcards from WDW, purchased in the late 90's on a family vacation. I love seeing how different things look, especially the fabrics, colors and overall quality of the costumed characters.

"Mickey uses a little Disney magic and a touch of pixie dust to produce the most exciting electrical extravaganza the Magic Kingdom has ever seen!"

"Fairy-Tale Friends: Throughout the Magic Kingdom, visitors meet old friends from favorite Disney films, among them Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs."

"'Helping is What Tiggers Do Best' - That's what Tigger seems to be saying to Winnie the Pooh as Pooh prepares to float up to the honey tree in front of enchanting Cinderella Castle."

"'Who's afraid?' - Not the Three Little Pigs. Even though the Big Bad Wolf can turn up anywhere, in the Magic Kingdom he never succeeds in catching his plump pals."

I've never actually seen the Three Little Pigs or the Big Bad Wolf walking around Walt Disney World. So seeing them in this picture in front of Cinderella Castle looks funny, as if they don't quite belong. 

I do remember meeting Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (at least most of them) at Epcot when I was younger. My favorite was always Dopey, so I'm happy to say I have a photo of Dopey and myself.

I also noticed that the Winnie the Pooh costume has changed over the ears. During my most recent trip to WDW, I had a photo taken with Pooh and Tigger. The word "Pooh" is no longer on his red shirt.
