Happy 4th of July! We wish all of you a fantastic day full of bbq, fireworks, and fun with those who are dear to you! As you enjoy the festivities, take a moment to stop and remember what it all began with and what it means. A group of leaders risked everything to declare that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
As we think about the independence that was proclaimed back in 1776, it is also fun to then think forward to all that has grown out of that declaration. With these new ideas came new dreams and new realities. One of these realized dreams that is near and dear to the heart of DAPs Magic are the Disney Parks, which all started with Walt Disney’s creation of Disneyland. Walt Disney was a big fan of Abe Lincoln and was very patriotic. This is evident as one walks into Disneyland and onto Main Street, USA.
Today we’d like to share with you some favorite patriotic memories from Disneyland and Walt Disney World. We hope you enjoy these memories and then please share your own patriotic memories or stories in the comments below.
