YouTube Tuesday #24: Walt Disney World 25th Anniversary Vacation Planner (1996-1997)

Continuing from the 1993 Vacation Planner video, this high-budgeted 25th-Anniversary video updates you on all the (TONS OF) brand new stuff that opened at WDW since 1993. During this small span of time, WDW opened Blizzard Beach, the All-Star Resorts, the Boardwalk Inn & Villas, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Alien Encounter, Timekeeper, Innoventions, Mickey's Toontown Fair, Food Rocks, Circle of Life, Honey I Shrunk the Audience, Ellen's Energy Adventure, and major refurbishments for Living with the Land, Spaceship Earth, Carousel of Progress, Tomorrowland Transit Authority, and Astro-Orbiter. In accordance with Eisner-era Disney, the higher budget guaranteed a more polished presentation to get people to WDW for the 25th Anniversary, which was really the first of Disney's now-standard 18 month-long "what did they pull out of their ass to celebrate now" magical marathon celebrations. This was indeed the prototype for all the Years of Millions of Dreams to come. Don't know how to feel about that...
