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 am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
