Check out this photo of guests rocking their Disney Side at Walt Disney World Resort back in the early 1980s (and those shopping bags!).

  • Excited voiceover: “You’ve had a full day at the Magic Kingdom! You’ve shopped! You’ve conquered the rides! You’ve eaten great food! You’ve met Mickey Mouse! You’ve shared good company! You’ve worn crazy glasses! What are you going to do next?”

    Excited response: “We’re going to Disneyland!!!!!”

    (Side note: I will admit to having those same giant glasses and ancient shopping bags in the early ’80s as well — except I was rockin’ them at Disneyland!)

  • My future’s so bright, I gotta wear (giant 80s style) shades!

  • “To laugh at yourself is to love yourself.”

  • “Link your elbows, step in time. Link your elbows, step in time…”

    • Good one.

  • Mickey Ears: $20
    Big goofy glasses: $10
    Shorter-than-short shorts: $40

    Looking SO retro you start a new trend: worth every penny when you’re at Walt Disney World! °o°

  • Like…What is an Epcot?

  • Sneezy? Nope. Grumpy? Nope. Sleepy? Nope. Doc? Nope. Happy? Not really. Bashful? Not a chance! Doopey? Yep, definitely Doopey!

  • “Gee, I sure hope mom never sends this picture with our Christmas cards. I’d hate to think that people might be gawking at our outifts.”

  • “I don’t think this’s what we wanted when we asked for sunglasses that ‘make us look totally fly’..”

  • Big goofy glasses? Check.
    Mickey ears? check.
    Souvenirs? Check.
    Now let’s go eat at the Crystal Palace. It’s cafeteria style.

  • Wow, these 3-D glasses from “Magic Journeys” are really cool!

  • “Now is the time. Now is the best time, Now is the best time of our life”

    • Nice.

  • If we are going to go on Splash Mountain, we need to drop these shopping bags off to the car. Then we can do more shopping later in the day! Cool!

  • I so totally want to go get a good seat for the Tencennial Parade!

  • 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated!
