Theme Day: Mystery Object
It's the first of the month and time for the City Daily Photo Theme Day. This time the theme is Mystery Object. This probably is not that much of a mystery, especially to Walt Disney World fans. I know there are those that come here quite a bit, and have missed this statue.
For the rest, this is a statue located at the entrance of the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World resort. While Walt Disney had the vision and tenacity to create a theme park resort in Florida, it was his brother, Roy Disney, who really sweated the details. And when Walt passed away before the park was completed, it was Roy who kept his brother's dream alive. I am certainly not doing the story justice here. It is worth a search to get the whole story.
And opening day for the Magic Kingdom happened this day in 1971; 40 years ago. Needless to say, the celebrations have been going on today. And that would not have happened without Roy. To see the entire statue, click here.
There are several City Daily Photo blogs participating in today's theme. You can click here to view thumbnails for all participants.
