On this date in 1893, Roy O. Disney was born in Chicago, Illinois. Although Walt was the creative force behind the Disney company, Roy was an important part of its success. Without Roy's business sense and leadership after Walt's death, it is quite possible that Walt Disney World would have never been built. The "Sharing the Magic" statue in this picture is located on the spot where Roy dedicated the Magic Kingdom back in 1971. It is a fitting tribute to the man who made sure his brother's dream became a reality.
