Honoring Our Patriots

In honor of our great country on this 4th of July, here's a beautiful piece of concept art for Liberty Square at Walt Disney World.  

When plans for the Magic Kingdom finally came to the surface, the Imagineers included this tribute to the patriots of the past, those hard working, God-fearing men and women who sought freedom for all. I was thrilled for Liberty Square to come about, and it remains one of the lands I most enjoy at the Florida park. 

With all the gorgeous details everywhere you look, it is a place of quiet dignity and peace. The Haunted Mansion may provide a different kind of thrill, but the stunningly sober Hall of Presidents reminds guests of the great sacrifices made by those who have gone before us. I only wish this sacrificial attitude would continue on in the hearts of our politicians and not just in the hearts of those serving our country in the military!
