Almost Wordless Wednesday ~ Thanks for the Memories

Come along and join the fun! Link up your Disney Almost Wordless or Wordless Wednesday posts, make new Disney friends, visit with old friends, see some great pictures at 
This statue of Roy O. Disney seated on a park bench with Minnie Mouse is located in the Town Square section of Main Street, U.S.A., at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. Roy Oliver Disney, Walt Disney's brother postponed his retirement to oversee construction of his brothers dream, Walt Disney World. On October 25th, 1971, Roy dedicated Walt Disney World in a nationally televised ceremony. Roy died two months after the dedication on December 20, 1971. 
The plaque under the Partners statue reads:
Walt Disney World is a tribute to the philosophy and life of Walter Elias Disney and to the talents, the dedication and the loyalty of the entire Disney organization that made Walt Disney's dream come true. May Walt Disney World bring joy and inspiration and new knowledge to all who come to this happy place ... 
a Magic Kingdom where the young at heart of all ages can laugh and play and learn together.
Dedicated this 25th day of October, 1971.
Roy O. Disney

Simply saying thanks seems so inadequate for all the wonderful memories we've enjoyed in Walt Disney World...

  10. Thanks for sharing that interesting history (and great pix, as always), Deb!  How could I have missed that statue with Minnie?!  It looked familiar ... I'm just always so excited and gawking around at the entry hub that I just didn't really take in the details :)

  12. You're welcome Tami! I love this statue. They move it around the holidays, so maybe it wasn't in the hub when you were there.
