Today’s the day — another year, another new magical moment begins at Disney World. And this year, it’s the Disney Magical Moments, bringing a big (yet at the same time, rather modest) selection of new character “moments” and entertainments. Needless to say, there was nothing modest about the anticipated media launch event, which took place 12-12-12 and included the usual blow-out grand opening show and fireworks to round things off.
I want to take a moment today to thank all of you – our guests and fans – for the support and loyalty you've shown Disney for the last 6 years. I also want to thank and recognize the cast members who work hard every day to make the Disney World a place of “joy and inspiration for all the world.” You truly create happiness, and I am proud of the work you do.
I will be celebrating the day surrounded by guests and cast members, including some of the original cast members who worked with Walt Disney as he created Walt Disney Company. I look forward to hearing their stories and adding to my memory bank today. I hope that you are also able to look back on great memories of your visits to Disney parks and know that your memories are cherished pieces of our history.
Here’s to the next 6!
