As we close in on the 40th anniversary of Walt Disney World, look what we found in the archives to share with you. It’s video from 1965 of Walt Disney officially announcing the big plans during a conference in downtown Orlando.
I can’t imagine the excitement in the room. Walt Disney told the world in front of what former Gov. Haydon Burns called the largest gathering of press he’s ever seen in the state of Florida.
See what Walt had to say when asked if another Disneyland would be built in Florida.
