“We’re walking right down the middle of Main Street USAAAA..” and taking time to stop and do some window shopping! In honor of the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort, Courtney and Emily are honoring Cast Member contributions to the park through Jeff Heimbuch’s book “Main Street Windows: A Complete Guide to Disney’s Whimsical Tributes.” Honoring a Cast Member with a window on Mainstreet dates back to opening day of Disneyland in 1955, a tradition started by Walt Disney himself. Walt Disney World followed suit and opened with cast member windows in 1971 as did every international park in the coming years. Cast Members made one man’s dream into a reality, so happy anniversary Walt Disney World and thank you to the dreamers and doers for 50 year of magical memories.
