Walt Dated World Needs Your Help!!! (01/17/2018)
The WaltDatedWorld channel has been on YouTube for 10+ years and has been in the YouTube Partner Program for the past several years. The channel has had thousands of hours of watch time in the past year and has never posted any inappropriate content.
The Partner Program provides funds that are critical to paying the hosting charges for the waltdatedworld.com website. Since the channel serves a small but devoted niche, there are currently not enough subscribers needed to meet the program threshold (there is also a watch time threshold but that has been met).
The channel has until February to get 700+ subscribers. Please subscribe to the WaltDatedWorld YouTube channel. If everyone that visits the website or follows the Walt Dated World Facebook or Twitter feed either subscribed or shared a link with their friends to subscribe, the goal could be exceeded in one day. Share and encourage others to do so. Please help a small niche creator who has done nothing wrong but has been wronged by the decisions of a large conglomerate. You can get to the channel from any page on the site by clicking the icon on the top upper left of each page. Thank you.
The Walt Disney World resort turned 15 years old in 1986. On November 9, 1986, ABC aired Walt Disney World's 15th Birthday Celebration. Hosted by Bea Arthur and Betty White, the special featured The Monkees, Air Supply, Emmanuel Lewis and other guests. The Disney Channel had two separate specials in honor of the milestone birthday. The first was called Magic Celebration-Live! and featured guests including John Sebastian, Miami Sound Machine, Belinda Carlisle and the cast of Kids Incorporated. The second was called Walt Disney World: A Dream Come True and it focused on the history of the resort, provided a tour of the present day parks and ended with sneak previews of the Studios , Pleasure Island and the Norway pavilion in Epcot.
To celebrate the anniversary at Magic Kingdom, there was a parade and both parks gave out a prize every 15 seconds. Guests were given a ticket when they went through the turnstiles that told them if they won anything. Prizes ranged from buttons and light-up visors to complimentary tickets to the parks (including Discovery Island) and cars.
This clock was outside the Magic Kingdom gates.
Joe Vancura shared this picture of his winning ticket from July of 1987.
