  1. Actually your site piqued my interest. There was no WDW at the opening, just another Magic Kingdom built similar to Disneyland’s original park but with changes to avoid traffic jams. The French Quarter was removed. Alas, its bread bowls of soup and cappuccino coffee were great as one sat and watched the shows on Tom Sawyer’s Island. He was to have an apartment on the top of Cinderella’s Castle.

    When he died, there were many Imagineering projects under review. Some were cancelled; others changed; still others continued. There is a huge map of his plans for the Orlando site. It was at one time on exhibit in Epcot. Don’t know where they put it now.

    I wish that the copy of the death certificate was more legible or zoomed into.

    I can’t remember which of the Los Angeles cemeteries he was buried in. Is it labeled on the map?

    Cyrogenic burial rumors still abound. I once took a tour in WDW and the guide touched on that one.
