1979 Closeups



Our Time Machine is all over the place these days. Today, we jump ahead to 1979. The photographer sure loved shooting closeups, but considering some of the subject matter there are no complaints here! Zoom in—zoom in! Looks like a lot of guests are interested in seeing Adventure Thru Inner Space. Take your time, folks—you still have 6 years left!



The wait for Space Mountain is 40 minutes! I think I'll pass on that one...



The Mary Blair tile murals are alive and well in 1979:



Anybody up for a little retail therapy?



A few showing the Space-Age looking exteriors in Tomorrowland:





More 70’s Polyester Magic tomorrow! See more vintage and current Tomorrowland photos at my website.

Cool ATIS exteriors! Even those are rare.

I remember the last time i went on ATIS, those first two pictures. There was a mild but steady rain that morning and there was that strange real life adventure feeling just peering into that line. I miss it but must say I do love Star Tours as well.
Thank you for those first two shots.

I feel like I just revisted my youth. I love this period for DL...probably because I experienced it first hand and miss it. Do you think if "Honey I Shrunk the Audience" is ever removed, that people will be missing it 30 years later?
