Since then, many things have improved. Walt decided that only one Disney location wasn’t enough, so he bought some land in Orlando Florida. The Walt Disney Imagineering team chose Florida because the weather is nice all year round, so more people can have fun. The plot was larger than Disneyland, at 450 acres of land. He decided to have 4 parks in Disney World. The first time they said anything about Disney World to the public, was November 16, 1965. Walt described his dreams of building first a unique entertainment and vacation center and soon a way of life found nowhere else in the world. Until his death in December 1966, Walt made these ideas, controlled the planning of an exclusive environmental approaches and laid basic reasons and designs for the new complex. Finally, on October 25, 1971, Disney World opened. Roy, Walt’s brother, made a speech at the Magic Kingdom, which was dedicated to him, and it said “Walt Disney Word 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.”
There are Disney Parks all over the world.
As it moves through the years, Walt Disney World Resorts continues to grow in size and scope far greater than anyone could have dreamed of in 1971 when the new “world” opened with just one park, magic kingdom, and two resort hotels. Today, the resorts are now in California, Florida, Japan, China, Hong Kong, France, and Hawaii. There are more than 700 million guests who visit Disney World in Florida alone. Walt Disney made an impact on our life, and now we see Disney everywhere.
