"On the opening day of Disneyland, we (Mouseketters) were in Walt Disney's private apartment above the Main Street Fire Station when the gates of the park opened for the first time. I was standing next to him at the window, watching the guests come pouring through the gates. When I looked up at him, he had his hands behind his back, a grin from ear to ear, I could see a lump in his throat and a tear streaming down his cheek. He had realized his dream. I was only twelve years old at the time, so it didn't mean as much to me then. But as the years go by, that image of him becomes more and more endearing."
a quote from Sharon Baird former mouseketeer.

Aw Sue, it hit me the same way I can so imagine what that moment would have been like. So many years of planning to finally see all your time and energy come to fruition. - CaptnSparrow 559.7 #198 3:59PM
They told us this story when I took the apartment tour. Perfect way to end the tour - BaseballMickey_CM
