Sixty Years Ago Today

Sixty years ago today, Walt Disney circulated a memo to his staff about a little idea he had called a “Mickey Mouse Park.” His ideas changed quite a bit over the next seven years to create Disneyland, which of course led to his unquenchable desire to “plus” himself and create Walt Disney World, with the help of the WED/Imagineering staff who bravely carried on after his death. I’ll be so bold as to say that the little memo that came out six decades ago today was the spark of what is now Walt Disney’s truest legacy: the creative, completely immersive vacation experience. And for that, I’m grateful…
