Though Walt envisioned Walt Disney World in Florida, he died before it was built. on opening day in 1971, almost five years after his death, someone commented to Mike Vance, creative director of Walt Disney Studios, “Isn’t it too bad Walt Disney didn’t live to see this?”
"He did see it," Vance replied simply. "That’s why it’s here."
