Photo Memories: Vintage Polynesian Village Resort Photos

Hi everyone!

To celebrate JWL Media’s new Polynesian Resort Screensaver CD and Polynesian Resort DVD, I am presenting these vintage images from my personal collection.

Below is a photo of my father (Walter Lange) studying the Polynesian Village Resort information guide. I love the vibrant 70’s room decor with all the green patterned designs! Next is a much younger Jeff posing with my Tiki friends.

The next two photos are from the original lobby. I will always remember the green and blue tile floors and comfortable wraparound chairs. The distinctive aroma that I’d encounter as a child is still the same to this day!

The original Polynesian Resort longhouses did not have colorful painted designs as the current ones do. Below right is the original pool. It featured a water slide which was only accessible by swimming through a waterfall. It was very exciting for me, as it was the first uniquely themed pool with a slide that I had ever encountered. As a child all I wanted to do was swim in this pool and go down the slide for hours and hours!

Swimming was allowed in the Seven Seas Lagoon back then! Below are photos of the marina.

The photo below is of my family and me swimming in the lagoon.

You’ve seen my vintage photos – now enjoy the Polynesian Resort from 2008:

October Florida Recap: NFFC Convention, Adventurers Club Dinner, New Releases and more

Hi everyone!

I had a great trip to central Florida last week, and accomplished all I set out to do. Below are the highlights of the trip:

2008 NFFC Florida Canvention:

This years NFFC Florida Convention was excellent as expected! Highlights included author David Koenig, who gave a highly informative and entertaining presentation on Epcot’s World Showcase concepts that were never realized. Animation Legend Joe Hale (below right) gave an interesting and candid talk about working at the Disney Studios. His recollections included memories of Walt Disney and dealing with Jeffrey Katzenburg, Michael Eisner and more!

Another highlight was Ike Eisenmann (below left), who spoke about his work on the original Witch Mountain movies. He segued into his involvement with the upcoming “Race to Witch Mountain” film and his own animation company. A very special tribute to Disney Legend Ralph Kent featured emotional memories from Gary Sohmers and a panel of Ralphs friend and co-workers. This was followed by a spirited auction where some of Ralph’s memorabilia was auctioned off by Mr Sohmers to benifit Ralph’s estate.

The convention also included a tour of the Walt Disney World Merchandise Warehouse, the induction of three new NFFC legends: Hank Dains, Jess Rubio, Phil Smith and Gretta Verity. A very detailed talk about the history of the Adventurers Club from Disney historian Jim Korkis rounded out the convention and got everyone ready for the special event that followed!

The Adventurers Club Dinner:

When Pleasure Island opened in 1989, I was 22 years old. It was the perfect age to enjoy all that P.I. offered! That included the Comedy Warehouse, a variety of nightclubs – and the mysterious Adventurers Club. I enjoyed the Island on my frequent Disney trips, but was especially enamored with the interactive characters and atmosphere of the AC. When I found out about Pleasure Island’s closing, I was especially saddened as I would not be able to visit the final night. Fortunately, I was given another chance to say goodbye with the NFFC during a wonderful evening as part of the Florida Convention.

I enjoyed a special evening with other NFFC members, who’d waited excitedly to enjoy the Club one last time. All the characters were in attendance, and even more interactive than usual due to the absence of the library shows.

We were treated to a hilarious New Member Induction Ceremony poking fun at all the “Disney Fanatics” in the room plus two Mask Room shows and two Treasure Room shows!

The actors seemed genuinely happy to host our group, and talked out of character a little more than usual at the end of the evening. Jim Korkis ended the eventful night with a final tribute to the Club and the performers (photo below of the cast posting for us).

It was an unforgettable evening, and I will truly miss this unique Disney experience. I hope it returns in some form in the future. For more photos of this very special event, please visit partner site MouseSteps.
