For April 17th… On This Day in Disney History!
On this day in Disney History… On this day in 1973, an amazing 73,168 guests visit Walt Disney World! Why is that so amazing? Well, it’s a very large number of guests considering Disney World only consists of the Magic Kingdom at this time. EPCOT didn’t open until 1982. Disney-MGM Studios opened in 1989 along with Typhoon Lagoon…Blizzard Beach opened in 1995, and finally the Animal Kingdom didn’t open until 1995.
