60 Minutes Looks at Disney's Impact on Orlando - - in 1972

Found this video on CBS News. Discusses Disney World's impact on Orange County in 1972, a year after the park opened. Quite the difference vs today.

Very interesting! I visited WDW back in 1977, there were very few things to do outside of WDW/MK (just one park then). A few lounges, restaurants, and I think a water park, that was it (as far as I can recall wheelchair ).

We stayed in the park until they were ready to close mickey

There was also a Navy base close by, those squids sure knew how to party awesome . But that's another story Innocent
