Today in Disney History

Will be staying at the lovely Dixie Landing in a couple of weeks...but now it's called Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside

February 2, 1967 -- Roy Disney outlined his late brother's plan to build a theme park and the world's first futuristic metropolis (aka EPCOT) in a film that debuted at the Park East Theater in Winter Park, Florida. "Project Florida -- A Whole New Disney World" ran 25 minutes, and showed a "city of tomorrow" that spanned 50 acres, based in an industrial park located between Orlando and Kissimmee.

February 2, 1992: The first phase of the Dixie Landings Resort opened.
