It’s time for a 1970s photo flashback!
In This 1974 Photo from Magic Kingdom Park, Two Guests Look Out Over the Rivers of America

In this photo, taken in January 1974, these groovy guests check out the passing Liberty Square Riverboat and Mike Fink Keel Boat on Rivers of America in Frontierland at Magic Kingdom Park.

Looks like something has caught the boys’ attention. What is it? You tell us. Go ahead and “Caption This” in the comments section below.

Aww, I was born in January 1974. =) I always find a reason to love your posts, Jennifer! My caption is “How many times are Mom and Dad going to ride around on that boat?”

Something’s not right here…THERE ARE NO DUCKS!! Quick, start throwing your popcorn into the water!

“This popcorn is delicious. Why Mom and Dad take so long to bring another bag for me?, Do they have wanted to go alone in that boat?”

Can you believe that in 40 years, the seven dwarfs will have their own rollercoaster?

Should we tell them that the crocodile from Peter Pan is following their boat?

16

Sean from GA on August 15th, 2012 at 3:10 pm

Someday I’ll live in a castle like that. Hey is that a hidden Mickey in the clouds.

Alison on August 15th, 2012 at 3:31 pm

“I’m telling you, little bro, there’s no gators in the water. If there are, then I’ll take you and a friend to see the latest Herbie movie at the drive-in.”

Sean on August 15th, 2012 at 3:36 pm

“What do you mean there are rides?”

I know Fantasmic! won’t start for 22 years, but I’m telling you we have to stake out the good seats now!

Kathryn from NY on August 15th, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Can you believe we have the Best Parents in the whole world! They brought us to Walt Disney World! Our friends are so envious now.

“I tried to tell ya’ not to unfasten that clip from the rope gate and come out here next to the water”.

Having made their escape with a few small but vital components of the boat’s communications system hidden in their popcorn bag, the young saboteurs were certain of one thing: the minnow would be lost.

amy from MA on August 16th, 2012 at 11:20 am

Where are Greg, Marcia, Jan and Cindy?

27

Allee on August 16th, 2012 at 2:20 pm

“What do you think this place will look like in 40 years?”
“I don’t know, but get your hand out of my popcorn!”

28

Terri on August 16th, 2012 at 4:22 pm

“Can you believe those Foolish Mortals’ boats are blocking our view of the Haunted Mansion?”

The magic is timeless…the shorts are not.

Jennifer from IL on August 17th, 2012 at 2:02 pm

Boy in red shorts: Did Disney start their own cruise line?

Boy sitting: No, they won’t do that for another 25 years.
