‘A Portrait of Walt Disney World’ Book Now at Art of Disney in Disney Springs
MickeyBlog is at Disney Springs where we finally managed to get your hands on a copy of a very special book that has just come out for Disney World’s 50th Anniversary.
This must have keepsake is titled A Portrait of Walt Disney World: 50 Years of the Most Magical Place on Earth and is by Kevin M. Kern, Steven Vagnini and Tim O’Day
We found ours at the Art of Disney at Disney Springs!
You’ll definitely want to pick up a copy as we don’t expect them to be around for long!
The copy table book boasts a forward by Bob Iger and paints a robust portrait of Walt Disney World through vibrant voices, concept art, photographs and more!
The book takes us all the way back to the beginning of the Disney Florida Project around 1964-1965. After a unique land acquisition in Central Florida and whole lot of imagination and innovation, Walt Disney World opened in 1971.
At it’s start, it featured the Magic Kingdom and three resorts : Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Village, and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.
The book tracks how Walt Disney World has consistently grown and evolved over the last 50 years. But some of the themes integral to the park from the very beginning are still evident today. This includes an appreciation for nostalgia, a joy in fantasy, a hunger for discovery, and the dream of a better tomorrow.
The book takes you through the traditions, characters, merchandise and more and explores how Walt Disney World has come to represent the “pulse” of American leisure.
The book was just released and is 320 pages long.
The book retails for $60.00 and trust me when I say that the artwork is nothing short of stunning.
For those that can’t make it to Disney World to pick up a copy at The Art of Disney, you can also find them in stock at Amazon here.
