It Wasn’t THAT Long Ago

 

1976 meant the bicentennial and marriage. We drove to Disney World without a second thought – nor preparation for that matter – and parked at the Contemporary Resort. In we strolled. “Do you have a reservation?” “No.” “OK, we have a room…” Yes, we were able to get a room, paid $50, left our suitcases in elegance and caught the monorail to a world of wonder. At night there were spectacular fireworks to celebrate becoming… well, other stuff too.

 

I don’t think you can just pull in to Disney World nowadays and find a room without a reservation… for only 50 bucks.

  1. What a lovely memory Mya. No, you can’t do that now. My son & his wife & daughter have just come back from DL Paris & everything had to be prebooked & was VERY expensive!
