Walt Disney World trivia:
On what date did Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida open?
If you guessed October 1, 1971, you are correct!
Tomorrow, Walt Disney World will celebrate it’s 40th anniversary with a special presentation that will start at 10:00 a.m. at the Cinderella Castle Forecourt Stage. Also rumored to be in the works is a special fireworks presentation that will accompany Wishes at 9:00 p.m. In remembrance of the decade in which Walt Disney World opened it’s doors, park guests have been invited via Twitter (user name @RetroDayWDW) to break out their retro 70’s garb and don it for their day in the park. How great is that?! It will be interesting to see how many guests actually take part. I may wear some 70’s inspired clothing tomorrow, just for the fun of it!
So here’s wishing Walt Disney World a very Happy 40th Anniversary!…and to the mouse that started it all.
