Vintage Walt Disney World: It’s National Goof-Off Day

In honor of National Goof-Off Day, I thought I’d share this picture of my favorite character to goof off with, Goofy. Here he is sporting a lot of sports equipment back in August 1988 at Magic Kingdom Park.


So make Goofy proud and spend a little bit of your day goofing off. You’ll be glad you did.


  • Happy Goof-off day to all!

  • Dawsh…. I’m so glad that there is one day of the year that I can officially Goof-Off!!! Thank You for National Good-Off Day!!!

  • Love this vintage shot!

    Goofy used to goof off quite a bit back in those days. I fondly remember, as a 5-year old, watching Goofy waterskiing while riding the ferry boat into the Magic Kingdom. Great memories!

    One thing I love about this picture is the beautiful trees surrounding the castle. I miss all the gorgeous green trees that used to line the hub. It made for a much more welcoming area that you wanted to sit down and relax in. It’s a bit barren now, with the sun beating down – not very relaxing!

  • It’s my Birthday so it’s definitely My Goof-off Day!

  • I’m planning to goof off by going to Disneyland after work today! Didn’t know there was a special day for it.

    • Neither did I. Isn’t the Internet glorious?

  • For me, everyday is National Goof-off day!!

    • 🙂
