DisneyMagicMoments: Go Behind the Magic and Back into the History of Walt Disney World Resort

By , Managing Editor, Walt Disney World Resort Public Relations

Tomorrow, Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Animal Theme Park will welcome guests once again, the first step in the phased reopening of Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios will follow soon after, on July 15.

In honor of the parks’ reopening, check out the video below where former Imagineer Maggie Elliott takes us back in time through the planning, design and original opening of Walt Disney World Resort. She shares some personal stories and reminisces about the people who made it all possible, including some Disney Legends.

You’ll hear first-person (and funny!) details about the creation of Cinderella Castle, see some incredible archival footage and photos going back five-plus decades, and learn more about the life of this amazing Imagineer. Take a look!
