Many remember those days very well. We were here... We were here... ..opening day... ..and we were very, very young. Well.. Very young. October 21, 1971, Walt Disney World opened its gates and since then millions have visited again and again, like sisters Terrece Connor and Rosmary Wilder. We went through the whole display of everything that was going to be and, of course, all of the things which were not even started yet. And we were just kinda hooked from day one. Disney's economic impact on Central Florida has been monumental. It's the area's largest employer and basically put Orlando on the map. (BRASS BAND PLAYS) For Disney faithful like Gina Conrad, who is visiting now for the 34th time, seeing the magic kingdom grow and evolve has been, well, magical. I always envision Walt so I want to know what he would think of all of this and looking back. I think that his life span would be interesting to see what he thought.

(ALL CHANT HAKA) The Warriors gave a physical Manly side a taste of their own medicine. COMMENTATOR: Oh, he ran into a good shoulder there from Maloney. But they'd need more than big hits to stop the Sea Eagles as they relentlessly peppered the line. Big Georgie Rose did some damage with his forearm and was put on report. Oh, yeah, that's a cheap shot, that one. The Warriors took the two points. Cherry Evans delivered an inside pass putting Brett Stewart over then came back for more. Cherry Evans has scored. Ivan Cleary's half-time talk fired up the Warriors and they took it to Manly head-on. Goes into hit - bang, bang. The Eagles were flying when Will Hopoate flicked one off to Stewart.
