A Beef with the Rollback -- Disney Related!

Friday, September 7, 2001 6:26 PM
As my 100th post, I think it's only appropriate that I address, of all things, a Disney-related issue (since, though I am a coaster enthusiast to the end, I am first and foremost a diehard Disneyphile!)

On the Rollback for September 7th, it says that on this day, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride closed at Walt Disney World in Reedy's Creek, Florida.  Now, I am almost positive that Walt Disney World is located in Lake Buena Vista, Florida -- a) because the Disney trivia books say so, and b) all snail mail is to be sent to WDW at a LBV address.  Plus, one of the Disney World golf courses is the Lake Buena Vista Golf Club.  Whoever checked this, I think there is a need to recheck it.  Of course, I could always be wrong...but not often with my Disney stuff!

Lake Buena Vista is correct in terms of the name of the nearest town. But the entire Disney property is located in the Reedy Creek Improvement District. The mailing address is Lake Buena Vista, but then the Reedy Creek Improvement District doesn't have its own post office designation. I think it's technically a political jurisdiction, not a city per se.

So really, as I see it, we're both right.
