Okay, so I’m totally cheating right off the bat with this one. Admittedly, X is a very difficult letter when it comes to coming up with Walt Disney World Words. That’s why this week I decided to bend the rules a bit for the latest Word of the Week – (Project) X.
In the 1960s, Walt Disney was an American icon. The man reinvented animation, won several Academy Awards for multiple genres of films, and had created the first ever theme park in the history of the world. He needed something new. After the success of the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair proved that the East Coast of the United States was ready for a new version of Disneyland, Walt made his move and purchased a ton of land in Central Florida.
This week I talk all about Walt Disney’s “Project X” or what would eventually be come to be known as the Walt Disney World Resort.
