Disney World is known as “The Most Magical Place on Earth”; however, some Disney World guests feel otherwise. Disney World is a popular theme park where families, friends, and others get together to make memories that will last a lifetime.

Disney World is home to four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Each Disney Park offers different attractions, shows, parades, and special events from time to time.

One of the most recent events Disney World held was a New Year bash. Disney’s Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, and Magic Kingdom all held a celebration with fireworks for guests to experience, bringing in the new year.

Sadly, over at EPCOT some Disney guests attending the New Year’s event felt like EPCOT felt more like a bar than a park. This guest commented on how Walt Disney made it clear he did not want alcohol to be in his parks.

Walt Disney (1901-1966) is a name known for entertainment and creativity. Walt Disney was an American film producer, director, screenwriter, voice actor, and entrepreneur. He is best known for founding The Walt Disney Company and for pioneering contributions to animation and theme park entertainment.

Walt Disney represented a unique blend of imagination, innovation, and determination, leaving an indelible mark on the entertainment industry and popular culture. Walt Disney is the creator of the beloved character Mickey Mouse and the founder of Disney Parks around the world.

In 1955, he opened Disneyland in Anaheim, California, the world’s first-ever theme park. Disneyland was not just a place for entertainment; it was a physical manifestation of Disney’s unwavering commitment to storytelling and immersive experiences. It set the standard for theme park design and provided a blueprint for future Disney Parks worldwide.

Over the years Disney parks remain to try and keep Walt Disney’s ideas alive and moving towards the future. While some changes have been noticed over the years, guests’ safety and health are Disney’s main goals in maintaining a happy and healthy park.

Please note that the story outlined in this article is based on a personal Disney Parks guest experience. No two guest experiences are alike, and this article does not necessarily align with Disney Dining’s personal views on Disney Park operations.

About Brittni Ward

Brittni is a Disney and Universal fan; one of her favorite things at both parks is collecting popcorn buckets. While at Disney World Resort, Brittni meets the princesses and rides Kilimanjaro Safaris. At Universal, Brittni enjoys the Minions and watching Animal Actors on Location! When not at Disney World Resort or Universal Orlando, Brittni spends time with her family and pets.


  1. I believe Walt Disney is turning in his grave! What he created for all families to have fun and enjoy is destroyed by the greed of CEO Iger, BOD, investors, Woke ideas, getting involved in political issues, and the constant bad behaviors of the guests. We don’t find Disney “The Most Magical Place On Earth” anymore!

  2. I think Walt would be more disappointed in America itself.
