Souvenir Friday- Walt Disney Character Parade Record

A cool souvenir from 1974 for a parade that was at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. The parade was the Walt Disney Character Parade and featured the costumed characters parading down Main Street. A souvenir flexi disc that was meant to be mailed, a flexi postcard, was created with the music from the parade.

I tried to convert the record into digital, but my program is being a pain....

I love everything about this -- the art, the concept...the flexi disc!!!

Talk about a bygone era -- remember records on the back of cereal boxes?

@Rich, yes I do remember those, also had some that came as inserts in a magazine. Whale sounds in National Geographic.

@Matterhorn, what software do you use? Have you tried Audacity? Free download, works great.

I love the original Walt Disney World fonts with mouse-eared globe in the first image.

I had an "All in the Family" flexi-disc insert from MAD magazine and one from a Post Super Sugar Crisp cereal box when I was a kid.

Wow. Days gone by. It's amazing how simple the artwork is compared to that of today. Thanks for the trip back in time.
