Disney Free Fun Guides

Walt Disney once said that ‘It all started with a Mouse’. Without Walt, of course, there would never have been Disney World. Sadly he died in 1966 and never saw his vision of the ultimate Disney World become reality. As a child, I used to dream of going to Disney World but that was something that was just so way out of reach it seemed impossible. For a start, I lived 5,000 miles away and secondly, there was no way my parents could have afforded to take me there.
