    As many of you undoubtedly know, Walt Disney had a significant amount of presence at the 1964 World's Fair in New York.

    I have a special interest in it since I was, in fact, at the Fair and saw all of the Disney sponsored or created attractions (Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, Carousel of Progress, It's a Small World, and Ford Magic Skyway). :happydance:

    Anyway, thanks to following some links in a post that our own Sarah made, I ran across this at Amazon:

    Walt Disney and the 1964 World's Fair

    I've already ordered my copy. Strange, but I actually remember much of this music. :unsure:

    If you're not familiar with what Walt Disney brought to the 1964 New York World's Fair, here's a link to some Youtube videos that will provide you with a fascinating glimpse of Disney history. :yes:

    Thanks for the link! The box set looks excellent.
    I listended to the samples of the 1890's, 1920 & 1930 versions of GBBTomorrow. Fabulous! If the exchange rate improves I'd like to buy that. :thumbsup:

    that website has some amazing things and articles...same with Jim Hill Media. I love the story they did about when big John took over and went into the animation department and said "if you dont draw you dont work here"

    I am a HUGE fan of John Lasseter is you couldnt tell!
