Guided Without GAF

Your Complete Guide to Walt Disney World
1978

Your Complete Guide to Walt Disney World is brought to you by.....Wait a minute.  What happened to GAF?  Just last year, 1977 that is, GAF, the View-master and camera people were the sponsor of these guides.

The 29 page guide is 5 1/2"x8".  The inside cover has a Transportation Schedule and a map.  Check out the key that has icons for Motor Coaches, Monorails, etc.  But try to find them on the map?  And how far is anyone going to get on the Empress Lilly?
The first few pages have 'Helpful Information' and details for '...our Blind Guests' and 'guests in wheelchairs.'  Interesting to note: "Guests in wheelchairs may await their parties inside attractions while party members go through waiting lines."
Pages 5-13 highlight each of the Magic Kingdom lands.  Each attraction is represented with a great sketch, has a short description and the ticket required.  The middle of the guide contains two great maps, the first one, Magic Kingdom, is below.  The second half will appear next week.
