Walt Disney World in Orlando is celebrating the life and times of its founder, Walt Disney, with the 100th anniversary of his birthday. On of the centerpieces of this event is a 12-story sorcerer's hat from the movie Fantasia. Disney died at age 65 in 1966.

The article is a little misleading.  The Little Mermaid show is still there.  The walk-through portion of the new attraction takes place in what used to be part of the backstage tour.  The theater which has the new Disney Story movie is the theater that was at the end of the backstage tour.

The walk-through attraction had a lot of interesting scale models of attractions prior to being built.  The detail in the models alone is fascinating.

I left the attraction thinking that we need more Walt Disney's in the world today.
