One of my favorite things to do while at Disney World is to take pictures, of anything and everything, so that I can capture all the amazing things we did and it’s a great way to relive the trip once we are back at home and in our post-Disney depression (yes, that really is a thing!)
My husband is also very much into taking pictures, but while I prefer digital, he is old school – he shoots exclusively on film, and has a rather large camera collection with some pretty cool cameras (remember film? I do – barely!)
One of the cameras he and I were both VERY excited to purchase was this Mick-A-Matic camera, circa 1970. It takes 126/instamatic film (which is pretty hard to come by nowadays since it hasn’t been manufactured since the 80’s!), and the picture quality isn’t the best, but let’s be honest – it’s all about the shape in this case!
We strolled down Main Street taking photos with this one day, and we got quite the reaction from Donald Duck himself, who was signing autographs in Frontierland – he shook his fist at it and was pretty angry that we weren’t using a Donald camera! He only calmed down and gave us the thumbs up when we said we promised to get a Donald camera for next time!
It’s a pretty cool addition to his camera collection, and it was definitely a blast to get to use it at the home of Mickey-Disney World!
We stayed at POP Century for this trip, and it is full of nostalgic memorabilia from the last 50 years. Behind the check in desk is this picture, and we thought it was pretty cool that our camera was famous (well kind of ha!)
It was a great find and while Donald might not like it, it reminds us of the Happiest Place On Earth!
