Almost as old as me and looking better than me..

Last month (October) was the 40th anniversary for Walt Disney World (WDW), specifically the Magic Kingdom. The first time I visited that magical place (it is also known as "The Most Magical Place on Earth") about 5 months after they opened. ( I have the pictures to prove it.)  It was started by a man with a dream and that dream continues many years later.

Now almost 40 years later I am preparing to make another visit.  This is not my second visit by any measure, but I don't think it is my 40th either.  I have visited numerous times over the years, and I always look forward to each trip with them same amount of excitement a child has when Santa is about visit.  It is a place that I can relax and not be a consultant or an responsible adult, at least for a little while.

The second best place to visit is, of course,  EPCOT. Built with a view to the future, it now highlights the technology of today and what we can do for the future.  A place to see what is, and what will be.  Also a place to travel the world all in one day.  You can visit the likes of Japan, Germany, Norway, Mexico, England, Canada and interact with people who are from those same countries.

This post was simply to remind us of the past and the future and to always be a child at heart.
