Disney Ski Team Mickey And Minnie Rare Set Water Skis Cypress Gardens Florida 46" Long. I live in Florida so I am familiar with Park. While growing up it was the main attraction in Florida prior to Disney World. I have included a little bio on the park for those of you who are not familiar with it. I have several pairs of skis up that came from Cypress Gardens. Disney had it's own ski team that performed their daily. They are marked Cypress Gardens.
Billed as Florida's first commercial tourist theme park, Cypress Gardens opened on January 2, 1936 as a botanical garden planted by Dick Pope Sr. and his wife Julie. Over the years it became one of the biggest attractions in Florida, known for its water ski shows, gardens, and Southern Belles.
became known as the "Water Ski Capital of the World" because it was the
site of many of the sport's landmark firsts and over 50 world records
were broken there. During World War II, soldiers visited and waterskiing was introduced for their entertainment. Numerous movies were filmed at the park, including portions of This is Cinerama, the first feature filmed in the wide-screen format, and a string of Esther Williams films and TV specials in the 1950s and 1960s.
In the 1950s the Southern Belles attraction was introduced, in which
young women dressed in the crinolines reminiscent of the Antebellum
South. During the American Civil War Centennial
young men dressed in Confederate uniforms would be photographed with
the Southern Belles. In the early 1960s a custom photography boat named Miss Cover Girl was introduced, and the park became a popular site for the filming of television commercials.
Many celebrities and dignitaries have skied and visited at the park, including Elvis Presley, King Hussein of Jordan and his son and successor, King Abdullah II. It was also the site of a Johnny Carson special.
