Like nothing else in the world

Catalogues, the magazine quality publication sometimes thicker than a phonebook, have become a thing of the past. Thankfully, the Magic Kingdom still believes in yesterday and the great feelings that nostalgia brings. These three photographs were captured along Main Street U.S.A. and exemplify the types of toys available in catalogues as these tree modes of transportation leap from the catalogue’s pages. These three dimensional advertisements not only include the monorail, pirate ship (presumably the Wicked Wench), and Walt Disney World Railroad, but they also include a quote from, or about, the attractions. As well, the announcements that surround each item offer similar type toys, as would any self-respecting catalogue.

Additionally, these same advertisements, just like all of Main Street U.S.A., offer a much different feel in the evening hours.
