Disney Ambassadors Presentation

About two weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be able to attend a special presentation by the Walt Disney World Ambassadors about the early years of Walt Disney World. Held at the Disney University, the event was a presentation about the story of how Walt Disney World came to be, with its beginnings in the 1964 World's Fair.

It was really cool to meet the Ambassadors, Vanessa Rosas and Clay Shoemaker. Both were extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable, answering a number of trivia-like questions. Their presentation was full of interesting tidbits of information about the construction of the Magic Kingdom and the early resorts.

They also gave out special Disney Ambassadors pins to people who answered some of their tougher questions. When they showed a picture of a certain building near Downtown Disney, I immediately recognized it and raised my hand. It was the Preview Center, now the Amateur Athletic Union building. I was definitely excited to receive the pin to add to my growing collection.

It's events like this that really make me feel lucky to be a part of the Disney College Program and to be able to attend presentations about material that is meaningful and interesting to me.
