“You can widen your world. Eastern: the wings of men.”

On June 5, 1972, the exhibit attraction If You Had Wings opened in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park. Located in Tomorrowland, the attraction was sponsored by Eastern Airlines. It used the Omnimover to escort guests through a series of exhibits featuring destinations where Eastern Airlines flights traveled. Locations included Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the Bahamas. The attraction closed on June 1, 1987, after Eastern Airlines withdrew their sponsorship; the attraction was replaced by Delta Airline’s If You Could Fly.
