Disney - The History

Although Walt Disney never saw the fruition of Disney World while he was still alive, it was really his concept to make it. That's why relating the history of Disney World would naturally begin with him. His concept lived on even after he died through his brother, Roy Disney.

Walt Disney's Idea

Walt Disney didn't just want another Disneyland. He dreamed of something much more than Disneyland and yet similar to it. He still wanted to bring entertainment in his theme parks. But he wanted to have a place where he could constantly add or develop something new to his original park and structures. Not only that, he wanted to test his concepts of urban planning through this project. True enough, what now emerged as the EPCOT or the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow was actually sprung out of his ideas.

Are you planning a trip to Walt Disney World?  We've got some great tips for meeting Disney Characters, saving some money, and some time too. 

Pluto: Pluto wasn’t always Mickey’s dog. He first appeared in The Chain Gang as one of the bloodhounds sent to look for Mickey, who had escaped from prison. Then in The Picnic, his second film role, he had a new name: Rover. Guess who he belonged to - Minnie! From that point on though, he was called Pluto and was Mickey’s dog and best friend.
