Walt Disney World and Magic Kingdom opened almost exactly 41 years ago. Let's look at some more of the park as finishing touches are added. Then let's enjoy the new park with some photos taken right after opening. Another big thanks to Nomeus of www.flurbex.com and his grandfather who took these photos while working on the construction of Walt Disney World. These photos are exclusive to ImagineeringDisney.com.
Early early Jungle Cruise photos are so rare! Look how clean and beautiful it was.
Walt Disney World Railroad.
Empty moat. Wait, was this taken before the sea serpent topiary was installed as seen in Part 1? I think so.
A look at Walt Disney World just after opening. Mickey leads the way.
A 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea queue full of people. But there's a construction crane in the background. Could this have been a pre-opening test group? Maybe the crane was still used after opening.
Huge thanks to Nomeus and his family for these amazing and rare photos. Oh to have a time machine!
