“All right I am corny, you know? But I think there are just about 140 million people in this country who are just as corny as I am…”
I’ve visited “Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream” on previous vacations to Walt Disney World, but had never taken the time to explore it in depth. I’m so glad I finally took the opportunity. This attraction (found at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Mickey Avenue) chronicles significant events in Walt Disney’s life from his early days…
… to his professional life:
“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.”
What I really geeked out over was the ORIGINAL Abraham Lincoln Audio-Animatronic from the 1964 World’s Fair! This was added to the attraction in November 2010 after the entire exhibit enjoyed a refurbishment. Abraham Lincoln was the first human-based audio-animatronic. LOOOONG before Pirates of the Caribbean or the Phoenicians in Spaceship Earth… there was ABE!
“It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”
Disney fans will also appreciate the beautiful models and replicas of iconic park icons and attractions:
“Why be a governor or senator when you can be king of Disneyland?”
Hear, hear :)!
This beautiful gallery can be strolled through at your leisure. You can take as much or as little time as you wish. Just be sure to stop in–you’ll be glad you did. Oh, and… Thanks, Walt.
