Walt Disney World is a tribute to the philosophy and life of Walter Elias Disney... and to the talents, the dedication, and the loyalty of the entire Disney organization that made Walt Disney's dream come true. May Walt Disney World bring Joy and Inspiration and New Knowledge to all who come to this happy place ... a Magic Kingdom where the young at heart of all ages can laugh and play and learn — together.
— Roy O. Disney, October 25, 1971
Happy 45th Birthday Magic Kingdom!
Mike and I were fortunate to visit at its 40th birthday. Maybe we'll visit at the 50th?
