It's A Disney World After All

It's A Disney World After All Walt Disney World - Disney World Vacation Information Guide - INTERCOT - Walt Disney World Inside & Out Only WDWorld » The Geek's Blog Destination EPCOT: First Impressions - Blogs - MiceChat You only get one chance to make a great first impression and that is certainly the case with theme parks. The arrival experience must transport guests from where they are to where the designers want them to be. Come with me as we explore the front gates of Epcot, in Orlando Florida. (For the purposes of this story, we use "EPCOT" in all caps to talk about Walt's ideas for a city of tomorrow and "Epcot" to discuss the theme park which was actually built) First, let's got back to sort of the beginning. Those ambitions cost a lot of money. Many years later, the same thing would happen with another blockbuster – Disneyland. Walt liked new challenges and he already had a Disneyland. Sadly, Walt passed away before his most ambitious dreams could be realized. In the first phase, Disney built the Magic Kingdom, three resorts, a multimodal transportation network, and the entire infrastructure to turn wetlands into a livable small city. The Magic Kingdom was to be an updated Disneyland.

Disney Parks Blog - The official blog for Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise Line Anyone want $1 million? Well, Walt Disney Studios is prepared to give that much money away as part of the world premiere of its new movie “Million Dollar Arm,” in which a sports agent (played by Jon Hamm) concocts a scheme to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a Major League Baseball star. Walt Disney Studios is staging a contest on April 25th and 26th to find a real-life “million dollar arm” by offering guests (you have to be age 18 and over with no prior professional baseball experience) the chance to throw the fastest strike. Click here for official rules. Even if no one wins the $1 million, everyone who steps up to the mound will be a winner in some way. You only have a couple of weeks to go, so start getting your arm ready. No matter what age, everyone seems to have a “Disney Side.” In honor of the famed foursome, we asked them to lend a hand in helping to train a troupe of newcomers. I love Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse in their springtime outfits – don’t you?
