Sponsored by the then official Disney airline, Eastern, If You Had Wings opened in June 1972 (a full 8 months after the Magic Kingdom opened). Though often seen as a very large moving advertisement for the company, the four and a half minute omnimover ride featured a myriad of travel destinations serviced by Eastern as well as it’s own theme song.

After exiting the attraction, guests could visit a working Eastern Airlines reservation desk to book future travel dates.

In 1987, Eastern discontinued its sponsorship of the attraction which led to a short closure in June of 1987 to make way for its replacement, If You Could Fly.
