Walt Disney's first theme park, Disneyland, oppened in 1955. Walt Disney World followed 16 years later, opening its doors on October 1, 1971. Disney himself was quoted as saying,"...there will never be another Disneyland, and I think it's going to work out that way... This concept here will have to be something that is unique, so there is a distinction between Disneyland in California and whatever Disney does in Florida." He also said, "I'm doing this because I want to do it better."
