This day in Disney history:


(2003) Walt Disney World hosted a railway celebration in honor of Walt Disney's fascination with trains. The event also served as a reminder that the original Disneyland park was partly inspired by Walt's hobby. It was not simply that Walt was a train buff; trains became a major element in his conception of an amusement park. As early as 1948, he wrote a memo describing his idea for a park that featured a railroad station and was circumnavigated by the tracks. A railway is also a major feature of Disney World's Magic Kingdom, and miniature trains run through the Epcot World Showcase pavilion, Germany.
