Fifty years ago, on October 1, 1971, Walt Disney World opened, and a whole new world began for Orlando and Central Florida.

A lot of you remember that day and the excitement it brought. You remember watching Walt Disney on television on Sunday nights in the 1960s and wishing you could go to Disney Land – but now the Magic Kingdom was coming to you!

Maybe you tried to scout out the mysterious construction sites to sneak a backstage peek. Maybe you applied for jobs or were in the band that played on opening day.

Whatever your memories are about Walt Disney World coming to town, they are important to Central Florida’s history! Please join us at our special Disney World at 50 History Harvest, and bring photos and other memorabilia, too! Museum staff will be present to chat about possible donations, or if you’re not ready to part with any items you can enjoy a day of reminiscing and sharing.
