40 Years of Walt Disney World

The Evil Queen, Snow White, Disneyland 50th Anniversary Mickey Mouse, and
Peter Pan

Today is the 40th Anniversary of Walt Disney World in Florida.  I have never been but wished I could go during the 1970's and 1980's.  I really don't have any pictures, so I decided to use some figurines that best represent my idea of the Magic Kingdom.
