Join us on Monday, November 29 for a post holiday presentation with Dr. Brian Rucker. 

October 1, 2021 was the 50th anniversary of the opening of Walt Disney World in Florida, which had a huge impact on Florida and national tourism. One of the neglected areas of study is the role the on-site resorts played in the evolution of WDW over the last fifty years.  Following Walt Disney’s own zeal to create a true “Vacation Kingdom,” the various resorts were specifically designed to provide visitors uniquely themed worlds where they could stay while at WDW.  Want to stay in a futuristic place, choose the Contemporary.  Want to experience the South Seas, choose the Polynesian Village. Want to experience the flavor of America’s national parks, choose the Wilderness Lodge.  Want Victorian elegance, choose the Grand Floridian.  Want to stay in the Atlantic City of the 1920s, choose BoardWalk Inn. Want to see African animals from your balcony, choose the Animal Kingdom Lodge. 

Dr. Brian Rucker will explore these “Worlds Within the World” in a presentation that includes an extensive and fun PowerPoint.
