More merchandise has yet to be rolled out to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World. This week, our attention went to Disney Springs and the Marketplace Co-op, where items from the Vault collection debuted. Here are some of our favorites.
The Vault Line is a collection of merchandise from the early 1970s, centered on the 1970s and the “preview center” and 1971 for the opening of Walt Disney World. As you can imagine, it’s exactly the 70s of what you expected.
Who else remembers that classic “world with ears and a big D” for Walt Disney World? Although it has an old-fashioned feel, everything old is new again.
It is interesting to think about how many people collected household items during the day: plates, spoons, thimbles. You don’t see it that much anymore.
I have a jacket full of patches of places I’ve been and things I’ve seen. If the patch was sold separately from the pin, I could buy it, but as a whole? He’s not that interested, sadly.
Speaking of pines, though, this one really speaks to all the vibration of the “Kingdom of the Holiday World”. This artwork is one of my favorite pieces in promotional materials because it really feels like the holiday destination I would like to visit.
However, when it comes to popular items, I think these metal lunch boxes will be a hit. I’m surprised Guy Selga isn’t already on a plane to Florida to get the Country Bears version. . .
And hey, that has such a retro feel. Those were the days!
Finally, one element that is taking a lot of love from our park team is the vintage style map. This feels like something right to frame and really demonstrates what has changed in the last 50 years.
Disney has stated that there will be several additional items that will be developed in phases to celebrate the 50th.
