Happy 47th birthday WDW

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
There’s a process for these photos. This was the first picture at this location. Chose the Incredibles because Incredibles II just released a few weeks ago.

 

Walt Disney was trapped at Disneyland.

He never saw it coming.

One-hundred and sixty acres was 10 times bigger than the original “spare” land he had at his Studio.

The city council never approved his request to rezone those 16 acres.

They didn’t want a year-round carnival in their city.

Walt saw it as a blessing because his ideas continued to expand well beyond anything 16 acres could hold.

So 160 acres….oh my gosh…plenty of land.

Boy was he wrong.

After Disneyland opened in 1955, and as Walt kept dreaming, he told his inner circle to secretly buy up as much swampland near Orlando as they possibly could.
