Walt's Jet Mickey 1

Walt's Jet
Mickey 1
It seems I have a theme going with Disneyland Travel and Promotion
so here it is:
this was the Studio Jet and Walt's personal jet.
Back in the 70s and 80s the plane was also used for
Buena Vista promotional tours
. Which meant when a Disney feature
was re-released into theaters [before VHS and DVD
the studio would send out a tour of Characters to promote the Movie.
We would do T.V. stations, Hospital and Mall visits

Either Fulton Burly, Wally Boag or Both would be the talent.
with a hand full of characters, a wardrobe person and 2 pilots
and some times a musician.
I had the pleasure of doing the Aristocat tour in 1981
25 city's in 28 days...

This is the cast of the Sleeping Beauty Tour 1979
and this is Fulton,inside the plane,
in his favorite chair playing cards...
he loved a good game of cards...
