The LA Times Puts Up Video of Walt Disney World’s Original Construction


Walt Disney World and Magic Kingdom fans, this video is definitely for you!

The Los Angeles Times has posed a video to their YouTube showcasing the construction of the Magic Kingdom! We get a look at the framework and construction on things like: The Seven Seas Lagoon, Main Street U.S.A., The Haunted Mansion, Cinderella Castle, and more.

I was especially fascinated at how each side of Main Street is a giant steel structure, the 2nd story construction of the park so you can see the utilidors and how they brought in vehicles like the monorails and trains on trucks.

Disney fans usually love seeing things like this so I wanted to share with you all. It’s so odd seeing it all under construction and it really shows what a giant undertaking it all was!

What do you think? Comment and let us know!
