Disney and More Time Machine : Back on October 1, 1971 at WDW Grand Opening

It's been a while since the Disney and more Time Machine took you back in time, and today we'll be back on october 1, 1971 for the walt Disney World Grand opening thanks to the original Wonderful World Of Disney opening show.

Where were you on this memorable day? Some of you watched the grand opening on TV, others learned about it in magazines, and many of you were probably not even born yet!

So, for all of you, here is the full WDW opening show. A show where you'll see the Magic Kingdom like you will never see it again, whether it's totally empty - not one people at the exception of Julie Andrews and the dancers or characters - or with the biggest marching band ever during the opening celebration.

It's fun also to watch big champions like Jacky Stewart - legendary Formule 1 champion - along with others Indy 500 champions racing on....Autopia! Or Bob Hope delivering his jokes inside the Contemporary Resort concourse...

Enjoy this great video!
