Artwork of "Sleeping Beauty Castle"
Designed by artist Jeff Granito
for Disney Theme Parks.
These postcards are from a set of 10 postcards in a metal box, two of each design. I bought two boxed sets in 2012. One I kept, and one I sent out to friends.
The Magic Kingdom
A Disney landmark, the "Snow-capped" Matterhorn Mountain towers majestically over all of the Magic Kingdom. High-spped bobsled runs carry guests down its slopes and through a Glacier Grotto inside the mountain.
Also featured on the card is the Disney monorail and Submarine.

This unused postcard features Mickey Mouse in front of his house in Walt Disney World. This was located in Mickey's Toontown Fair. This part of The Magic Kingdom closed in 2011 to make room for the expanded new Fantasyland.
All of the letters are covered in glitter. I bought it in 2014.

During your tour through The Land, you will see a wacky show called Kitchen Kabaret, which tells the story of nutrition in a very unusual way.
Walt Disney World
This postcard is unused. I remember this show and how much fun it was to watch it.

Kitchen Kabaret was a 13-minute audio-animatronic show at Epcot, Walt Disney World Resort located in The Land pavilion. It was present on EPCOT's opening day, October 1, 1982.
The host, Bonnie Appetite, introduces the acts in a musical review and comedy format that advocated healthy eating and provided a primer on the four food groups: meat, dairy, grains, and fruits/vegetables.
The show was replaced in 1994 by Food Rocks.
