The rest of this page is dedicated to the multi view
postcards of the Magic Kingdom that came out during this
series. Now most of them are pretty well done, but you
can rest easy, none of the others are likely to elicit a
dissection of why I like the card as the card above
Now about this card below. I like this card it's a pretty card and still a nice example of a well done multi-view, but, what may be most interesting about this card is what is not shown. Theres no view of Epcot, think about it here we have a card emblazoned boldly across the front with the Walt Disney World logo, they make a point of featuring one view of the Magic Kingdom, one view from Disney's Shopping Village, one view of a resort hotel, six of the top characters, and just so we don't forget it was all started by a mouse top center is the head cheese. So basically they have made sure to feature one aspect of each of the parts of a Walt Disney World vacation, perhaps they even looked at it as, the Magic Kingdom representing the theme park aspect of the WDW experience so that covered that aspect of the card, Still it is hard to imagine them making a postcard today that tries to cover the WDW resort experience without including Epcot. In fact there is a current multi view that does cover the resort pretty well in just 10 views, and Epcot is one of those views. So I think that this goes back to the idea they had at the opening of Epcot center that Mickey and his friends didn't necessarily belong there, even though that had ended by the time this card came out, with Epcot being such a major part of WDW at that point I think at least a vestige of that mentality must have kept it off this post card.

0100-11804 LIBERTY SQUARE
I'm guessing that the main reason the exchanged the above Frontierland multi-view for the one below was the change in the Country bears show, but all in all, I think the other three views they picked work better as part of a multi view than the originals did, A hearty Well Done! to whoever picked those out (even if it is the same person who picked the views on the first card).
0100-11812 ALL ABOARD FOR BIRTHDAY FUN
And here we have a card that shows the shortest lived land of all Mickeys Birthdayland! Created during the celebration of Mickey's 60th birthday it was at first temporary, but some time after the Birthday celebration ended it was re-named Mickeys Starland. Later it was later renovated to set up more permanent attractions and converted into Mickey's Toontown Fair.
