Attention Magic Kingdom Park fans! In honor of the park’s upcoming 40th anniversary this Saturday, Oct. 1, we’re running a new series of header images on the blog that offer a peek back into the time of the park’s design and construction.
This set of images, which ranges from artist renderings to early construction photographs of the park, include a handful of shots that even we have never seen before. Extreme Disney fans also may notice artwork and sketches by Mary Blair and Herb Ryman added into the rotation. Lastly, we wanted to send a big thank you to the Walt Disney Imagineering Art Library for providing these images!
Here’s one of my favorite shots, an early artist rendering of the Swiss Family Treehouse. What do you think?
