The Day DLP's Sleeping Beauty Castle was Unveiled

I know you're all waiting for my DLP update and 20th Anniversary news. You should have it probably at the end of this week. In the meantime we'll go back in time with this video shot at DLP 20 years ago.

On October 12, 1991, long before Main Street U.S.A was finished a special presentation event happened at DLP with Michael Eisney, Roy Disney and Robert Fitzpatrick - who was DLP first CEO - to unveil Sleeping Beauty Castle. You'll note that Main Street buildings are still under construction and most of them were not even painted yet. It was still the time of innoncence for the park, long before the financial problems that we know, and that's part of the reason why this video have its charm.
