Walt’s Disney World Press Conference, 1965

Recently we looked at a promotional film created to promote the upcoming economic impact of Walt Disney World after it was announced in 1965. It featured clips of the November 15, 1965, press conference at Orlando’s Cherry Plaza Hotel where Walt, Roy, and the charming Governor Hayden Burns discussed the project with the media.

Now, here’s the full press conference from that day. It brings, as the kids today say, all the feels. It’s preceded by some footage of the Disney party arriving at the hotel; don’t adjust your sets – the initial footage is silent.
