On October 1, 1971, the Walt Disney World Resort officially opened, including the Magic Kingdom Park, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Resort, and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.

Fans of Disney's theme parks have been celebrating 50 years of magic. This is such an epic party that will last through 2023.

Poor Mike, he was almost a 'Home Alone' prequel!

This one from 2017, is kind of the same theme as the first one, but a lot less creepy.

Here's one from Epcot, in the 1980s, it takes us back in time, to show what the future might've looked like.

This little girl's reaction to Mickey Mouse is pure Disney Magic!
