October 1 - Disney World Opens in Florida!

On this day 41 years ago, Walt Disney World Resort opened its doors in Florida. Since then, the resort has become the largest and most visited resort on the planet. Disney World covers a 30,080 acre lot which encompasses four themed parks, two water parks, and 23 themed hotels. To put that into perspective, the 30,080 acre lot is nearly the same size as the city of San Francisco!

Given the enormity of Disney World, the resort employs over 66,000 workers, which in turn costs over 1 billion dollars in payroll a year! Needless to say, this isn't your typical "Mickey Mouse Organization".
