Post subject:  Disney World Could Have Gone Nuclear

In 1967, the State of Florida passed a law allowing Disney World to build a nuclear power plant.

As bizarre as that sounds, it is more of a testament to the political power of the Mouse than anything nuclear. This was 1967. The NRC, DOE and EPA were all dreams yet to come and their formation changed everything about the industry. So this law is just an interesting historical footnote.

But it is an example of how much of a visionary Walt Disney was. He was also impatient and understood how slow societies and governments move. And Walt wanted to move fast. He knew that his plan for the Park would need lots of power, lots of flexibility and lots of self-government.
