Under way with a new Disney

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I am a sucker for construction photographs at Walt Disney World. Sometimes they show the metal skeleton of a building or an almost completed icon, but they always show off the hard, often hot and dirty, work that went into building a place I was taught to love. That type of work ethic is something I hope I have showcased in my own life. Often times that level of dedication is shown best, not in the wienies, such as Cinderella Castle, but in the smaller projects. Case in point:
Thursday, July 8, 1971 – This is a view of the dock and teen swimming pool in the Bay Lake at Walt Disney World which is being built near Orlando in central Florida.
The dock, recreational facilities and swimming pool may not be as exciting or notable as the monorail, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea or even the resort itself, but how many guests made long lasting memories sitting on that dock at dusk or playfully splashing in the pool? It’s all a matter of outlook.
