The Magic Kingdom opened it's gates for the first time on 1st October 1971, although it wasn't officially dedicated until 25th October which was officiated by Walt's brother Roy O Disney.

'Walt Disney World is a tribute to the philosophy and life of Walter Elias Disney...and to the talents, the dedication, and the loyalty of the entire Disney organisation that made Walt Disney's dream come true. May Walt Disney World bring joy and inspiration and new knowledge to all who come to this happy place...a Magic Kingdom where the young at heart of all ages can laugh and play and learn - together'

We take a look at the opening day attractions and ask which attractions will stand the test of time and still be with us in years to come. As well as sharing some memories of attractions gone but not forgotten.
