WDW Radio Show #553 – Finding Florida: Why, When, and How Walt Disney World Came to Orlando

Join me this week as we board our Walt Disney World Wayback Machine and go way way back… before Walt Disney World. Together, we’re going to look at how, when, and why Disney came to Florida, and how it almost wasn’t Florida at all. We’ll explore the many legends and locations of where the “second Disneyland” was going to be built, including New Jersey and Canada, and the real reasons why they never came to be. We’ll then discuss the process of finding Florida, why Orlando might not have been their first choice, and the many factors that led to deciding exactly where the World would be built.
