Granddaughter of Magic Kingdom construction worker shares photos

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

Kelly Wise Valdes didn't think twice about visiting the Magic Kingdom when she was a child. Her grandfather, Chester "Chet" Wise, helped build the Disney park starting in 1969 and continued to work there until he retired in the late 1980s. She recently found that her grandfather had taken dozens of pictures of the Magic Kingdom under construction, often from high above.

Look at the tenth photo... I was looking at it for a good minute or two and couldn't understand what I was looking at, the row of buildings. That's because they're almost completely hidden by trees. Even if you take the path/bridge closest to them, you may not see them.
