The First Disney World Postcards

On October 1st 1971, The Magic Kingdom (aka Walt Disney World) opened it’s doors to the public.  Prior to opening day, a number of promotional postcards were produced that showcased via conceptual artwork the attractions that could be experienced at the park in Florida.  This was not unlike the early Disneyland cards that I have spoken about in my Sundry Collectibles blog.  The cards were given out prior to opening day, but also were available afterwards as indicated by the card I show here, postmarked on February 21(?), 1972.

While I do not actively collect these cards, I do keep my eye out for them on eBay or elsewhere.  The full set is made up of ten different cards (that doesn’t include variations).  To see what the rest of them look like, check out this WDW Postcards site.

Until next time…

About Todd

Hello. I have been collecting Disneyland postcards and paper items for a few years now and figured I would start to share my collection with any and all who are interested. I actually started blogging on Blogger ( but after a while realized I wanted a dedicated Disney site since it is a fairly niche hobby. Enjoy!

      Hello Tina…there are two versions of FL-029, but either way that card is worth between $5-$10 since it has been used. Maybe a little less, maybe a little more. If you put it on eBay it would just depend on who happened to be looking at the time…prices can swing around a fair bit.
