There was also a grand luau at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort along with Bob Hope dedicating Disney's Contemporary Resort.There was also a 1,076-piece marching band directed by "Music Man" Meredith Willson.Julie Andrews, Glen Campbell, Buddy Hackett, Jonathan Winters also attended the opening.
There are over 1,100 Audio-Animatronics at the Magic Kingdom and over one million fireworks are used annually in order to perform the nightly Wishes fireworks show.
There are others that come to mind these are all gone now. Depending on wich side one stood the motor boat cruise .
If one wanted to get technical the flying saucers were both ways I think you have the rest well taken care of. From Labor Day to the end of September, employees, construction workers, local leaders, business leaders, and their families were allowed in the park for the first 'soft opening'. Disney gave the opening dedication for the park in Walt's stead. Disney gave a tribute in Town Square alongside Mickey Mouse. On opening day, many feared the crowds would be unmanageable, so the directors called in extra Florida State Troopers to deal with the crowds.
I love the idea of Post Avatar, because I have a ton of LJ icons I'd like to be able to use on my WP blog. The Magic Kingdom was originally based on the design of Disneyland in California; however, there has been little duplication of the park.
But for some rsaeon, my icons always appear centered in the top of my post the icon doesn't float left and allow the text to wrap, which is what I want it to do. I'm not really all that fantastic with CSS, so I have no idea how to make it float and wrap. Many of the attractions at the Magic Kingdom have been enlarged from Disneyland.
For example, the Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom is 189 feet high, which is more than 100 feet taller than Sleeping Beauty's Castle in Disneyland.
The first promotional information for the Magic Kingdom was created to show the differences between Disneyland and the new park.
Up to 100,000 visitors were expected on opening day; however, only 10,000 showed up.
Many were scared off by the news stating that traffic would back up on Interstate 4, then only four lanes.
