Notes: This is the castle at Walt Disney World in Orlando.  That makes it Cinderella's castle.  It is 189 ft. (58 m.) tall, which is more than 100 feet taller than Sleeping Beauty's castle at Disneyland in California.  I have never seen this castle in person; however, I have seen Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany, which is said to have been the model for this fairy tale castle.

Notes: A trip to Walt Disney World just would not be complete without a visit with Mickey Mouse.  This postcard celebrates Mickey's 60th birthday, which would have been in 1988, as he debuted in 1928.  Speaking of 60 years, this year marks the 60th anniversary of the opening of the other U.S. Disney park, Disneyland.  Wow!
