Motion Monday: Roy O. Disney's Walt Disney World speech

By Keith Mahne

This week's Motion Monday article takes us back to Oct. 25, 1971,  the official grand opening and dedication of Walt Disney World, where we'll watch as Roy O. Disney reads the dedication plaque to a full capacity crowd. It was certainly a special day and a special way to open the park in memory of his brother, Walt Disney. Let's have a look after the page break...



Keith Michael Mahne is the owner and editor of Disney Avenue and the host of the Disney Avenue Podcast. He has made countless trips to the Walt Disney World resort since his first trip in 1989 at the age of four. 

Keith has a strong passion and respect for Walt Disney, the parks and resorts, and the men and women who help create them. He started Disney Avenue as a way to inform and entertain readers and to repay all those who make dreams come true every day.

Keith created Disney Avenue as a "happy place" where one can come to learn, enjoy, and escape each and every day. As our slogan goes, we hope you "Enjoy your stroll down Disney Avenue; it's not Main Street, but it's close to it!"
