|Walt Disney World Metal Drink Tray|
This early Walt Disney World metal drink tray serves six. It measures approximately 10.5 inches in diameter. The six recessed glass holes are about 2.5 inches in diameter and about .25 inch deep.
Each of the glass holders features a different scene from the Magic Kingdom. I find the vultures from The Jungle Cruise a very appealing choice for a beverage tray.
I do not know the exact age of this piece but would assume that it is early 1970's because of the artist renderings instead of real photos and the lady's daisy dress in the Main Street, USA picture.

|Swiss Family Island Treehouse postcard|
As autumn descends and the leaves begin to fall, at least on us in the northeast, one tree has not changed in 41 years. This postcard from 1971 shows the 'evergreen' Swiss Family Treehouse. This early postcard from the '0111' series uses the 'florida-flag' logo on the back but does not have the dp stamp or the land-themed icon on the bottom like other early postcards from this series.
