Awesome TV Special Recorded for the Disney World Opening #TBT

For this week’s throwback video, I dug up this awesome video of the Walt Disney World opening that aired as a TV special in 1971. It is pretty amazing to think about how far Disney World (and TV specials) has come over the past 45 years. Sit back and enjoy this one everyone!

I have since returned to the magical place more than 20 times.I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.Other interests include 80's nostalgia, vintage toys, video games, LEGO, Star Wars and tech gadgets.
