HAPPY 45TH ANNIVERSARY WALT DISNEY WORLD. 45 YEARS AGO OCTOBER 1ST ORLANDO FL. 1971
My artist friend Posted this beautiful piece on Facebook and I wanted to share his art, for the 45th Anniversary of Walt Disney World.
Hi, my name is Robert Lisinsky and I'm an aspiring artist in the Orlando, Florida area. As some of you may know, Walt Disney World turns 45 this Saturday, October 1. I wanted to make an original poster for the event, and I'm happy to have the opportunity to share it here. After a little research, I found out that the "traditional" 45th anniversary gift is a sapphire, so I used that as the theme of the decorations in my poster. I included attractions and landmarks that were there on opening day, with Cinderella Castle being the most prominent and most decorated with blue and silver banners and the blue roofs turned into "sapphires". I had to pick and choose among what was there on opening day, but I felt it was important to include the Country Bear Jamboree (represented by Big Al) and the Hall of Presidents since they were unique to the Florida resort when it opened. I included the Orange Bird for the same reason. I specifically included the Roy O. Disney locomotive so my poster would have both Walt Disney's and Roy Disney's names on it. Without Roy's dedication after Walt's passing, there probably would not be a Walt Disney World today. The original is 11" X 17" and is done entirely with colored pencils.

Thank you, Mitchell, for the invitation!
Who remembers those old commercials? Come visit Walt Disney World in Florida. the newest theme park, the size of San Fransisco.
I wish I could say more about this Theme park, But I was born in California, I keep saying I will make it to Florida before I die. I am 51 years old now.
I need to go. My wife used to live at WDW, But she moved to the original park to live with me.
Here are some pictures from 1971 or earlier.
Happy Anniversary Walt Disney World. 45 Years of Magic.
