Important Dates in Disney World History (1959-2019)

Here is a comprehensive look at the many important moments in Disney World history. After close to 50 years of operations, there is much to list here and much more to add in the future. I’m hoping there is a nugget or two in here that you may find new and interesting.

Please note that some of these dates in Disney World history are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on third party accounts and not official company reports. In other words: This is the best Disney World history I can find, but I don’t guarantee anything.

About the Author

Craig Smith
I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. 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 7 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. Other interests include Disney, Sports, 80's Nostalgia, LEGO, Star Wars and Tech Gadgets. Other sites include DMR and VideoGamesStats.com.
