80's Retro Box

Walt Disney World gift box
1986
Every decade has its look back to a previous time.  Walt Disney World is experiencing a lot of that now with the return of the Big D logo.  Well the 80's at WDW saw a return of the retro 70's look with this gift box design from 1986.  The Big D logo in the oval, the three stripes, flowers, and Mickey are almost identical to a souvenir box design I shared from 1978.  Of course the 70s version did not show Spaceship Earth.
"Together at Disney: the World's Greatest Resort" is the tag line.  That is one that I have not seen used elsewhere.  The box is approximately 7 inches long, 3 1/2 inches wide, and 1 1/2 inches deep.  I'm not sure what its intended contents would be.  A watch, perhaps?  Regardless, the box itself is now just as priceless as the contents it was made to carry home from "the World's Greatest Resort."
