Walt Disney World Wows Guests During its 40th Anniversary Celebration

(OCT. 1, 2011): Anchored by the Mouse “who started it all,” Walt Disney World Resort marked its 40th anniversary Saturday with a gala procession fronted by characters parading up Main Street, U.S.A. to a colorful celebration in front of Cinderella Castle. During the finale, the Dapper Dans, a barbershop quartet, led park guests in a chorus of “When You Wish Upon a Star” and daytime fireworks and streamers shot into bright blue skies. Walt Disney World Resort opened on Oct. 1, 1971. (Ron Riccio/Disney, photographer)
