We've Come A Long Way...

Today, as many of you may know, is Disney's Hollywood Studios' 20th birthday. Yup, on this day, 20 years ago, Walt Disney World opened it's 3rd park in the Florida resort. Disney-MGM Studios officially opened.

Happy Birthday Disney's Hollywood Studios!

It's one of my favourite parks, and I felt that we should take a break from our tour of Tokyo Disneyland to celebrate this monumental occasion! DisneyWorldTrivia.com's Page-A-Day calendar has a nice piece about the opening of the Studios, including how it would also be a working Animation Studio too. I remember being able to go on the Backlot tour and actually see animated films being worked on. How cool was that?

In honour of this occasion, let's have a look at the dedication plaque that now stands in the epicenter of Disney's Hollywood Studios:
Happy Birthday Disney's Hollywood Studios!
The World you have entered was created by The Walt Disney Company and is dedicated to Hollywood - not a place on the map, but a state of mind that exists wherever people dream and wonder and imagine...a Hollywood that never was - and always will be

Happy Birthday, Disney-MGM-Hollywood Studios! Here's to another 20 - and 20 more! And all of you at the Studio 20 event today - enjoy!
Happy Birthday Disney's Hollywood Studios!
