Happy Birthday WDW!
That's right: On October 1, 1971, Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida officially opened it's gates!
Opening day attendance was around 10,000 people, and though Walt himself wasn't around to see it, his presence was felt throughout the park.
From the rides to the restaurants to Mickey and Minnie and all the gang--I don't think Walt could have envisioned such a wonderful outcome. Walt Disney World truly is the happiest place on earth, and I, for one, am glad to see that each year it gets bigger and brighter and more beautiful.
Happy Birthday, Walt Disney World--I'll see ya real soon!
