On Saturday, February 28, students in History 340: Disney in American Culture went on a tour of the Magic Kingdom. As we posed for this picture, the 99-year-old train called “Roy Disney” steamed past and we captured our photo with the historic engine. So, yes—there is history at Disney World!
In Liberty Square, we visited authentic historic relics–like this Liberty Bell cast from the same mold that made the original–as well as replicas that blend historic time periods into a historical pastiche.
