Today we celebrate the 10th anniversary of an important, yet often overlooked attraction in Hollywood Studios. Walt Disney: One Man's Dream officially opened on September 23, 2001. Up until this point, there had been very little in the parks about the man who started it all. Of course there are references, pictures, and even a statue of Walt, but One Man's Dream was the first attraction completely dedicated to the life and dreams of Disney himself.

Walt Disney: One Man's Dream is an attraction that should be experienced by every Walt Disney World guest. I think that often times people mistakenly bypass it when they hear that it isn't a "ride" or a "live show." I feel that it is an important and necessary journey that explores the life of a man who was such a giant in the entertainment industry and who's work is still revered throughout the world. The attraction can be walked through in as little as 15 minutes, however you can easily spend over an hour enjoying all of the individual pieces that are on display. Each time I visit, I seem to find something new that I hadn't noticed before. Also, although it's not required, every guest should watch the film at the end of the tour. It is really a moving tribute to Walt Disney, a man who has directly and indirectly brought so much happiness to millions of people for nearly a century.
Have a Disneyriffic day and remember to keep moving forward. See ya real soon!
