Destination Disney: Quotes from Walt

This week's Destination Disney with Heidi's Head is all about the above quote.  I took the photo from Heidi's blog so I could write about it. I'm assuming that was the "assignment!"  I think I'm supposed to use the quote she provided and write what I think about it... instead of posting one of my favorite quotes from Walt.  Heidi, correct me if I'm wrong and I'll do better next time! ;)

"Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy."

This is one of the first signs you see as you enter Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, and I believe it's also at Disneyland.  As you pass under the train tracks to enter Main Street, you can see it.  It's a beautiful reminder that you are leaving the stresses, worries and troubles of today and begin an exciting adventure inside the park where you will experience Yesterday, Tomorrow and Fantasy!  

This is what I love about Disney.  You can transport yourself to another place.  You can experience the beauty of "yesterday" as you walk down Main Street, experience Carousel of Progress and so many other attractions.  You can get swept away in your childlike state in Fantasyland as you soar with Peter Pan, bounce with Tigger, fly with Dumbo and sing with children from all over the world.  You can see what "tomorrow" will be like as you travel overhead in the People Mover, blast through space on Space Mountain and protect yourself by becoming a space ranger!

The Magic Kingdom is the perfect park for this quote... I truly believe EVERYONE can leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy when they enter Magic Kingdom!  Thank you Walt for providing this "getaway" for so many.

  1. Yes, this is exactly what I had in mind, Beth! Taking each week's quote and telling what it means to you and sharing any pictures that go along with it. I love your thoughts on this first quote!
