Retro Reminders

For this series, I am going to try to focus on the numbers on different attractions and buildings within the Walt Disney World Resort that correlate to important dates in the parks’ history.¬† I am going to start was a big focus on 1971, the year the Magic Kingdom opened, and build from there.

The first in the series is Engine Co. 71 located on the right side of Main Street USA after you pass under the Walt Disney World Railroad.
