Happy 48th Birthday, Walt Disney World!

Share

Forty-eight years ago on October 1, 1971, Walt Disney World opened to the public! After the success of Disneyland in California, creator Walt Disney decided to move his trademark to another location in Orlando, FL. For 48 years, Walt Disney World has brought magic and fun to families all across the world; from its parades, special ticketed events, attractions, food, hotels, and so much more!

In almost 50 years, the theme park has continued to change for a better tomorrow and “keeps moving forward” with new technology, and added parks — including Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios — along with new attractions to keep Disney families coming back for years to come!

Join Nerds and Beyond in wishing Walt Disney World a happy birthday!
