“To All That Come to This Happy Place…”

One Disney fan and content creator shared a newly added decorative banner that now graces the finale scene of the enchanting Tiana’s Bayou Adventure attraction at Magic Kingdom Park. This delightful addition serves as a heartwarming tribute to the timeless words of Walt Disney’s iconic dedication speech during the opening day of Disneyland Park. The sign reads,

“Welcome to all who come to this happy place.”

The quote is from an expert from Walt Disney’s iconic speech when he said:

“To all that come to this happy place, welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America… with hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”
