1964-65 World's Fair in New York.It's full of memorable music,songs,
and moments form such exhibits as "Progressland"("The Carousel Of Progress" is a hoot!),"Great Moments With Mr.Lincoln"(Royal Dano's
narration is perfect),and especially the charming "It's A Small World"
(you won't get that cute song out of your head!).Those are the first three discs,and they're the set's highlights.But the fourth and fifth
discs,"Magic Skyway" and the bonus disc,are also full of treasures.
The informative and beautifully illustrated book is a major plus.
This whole set shows why Disney's exhibits became the Fair's most
popular and memorable attractions,and why Walt Disney was so successful:
he knew his audience.He knew how to entertain people while also educating them at the same time,and he did it better than anyone before or since.
The set will bring back many wonderful memories for anyone who saw the
World's Fair at the time(or perhaps may have seen some of the attractions in Disney's theme parks),and will also be a delightful history lesson for others.Whichever you are,you will love this.Sit back and enjoy!
