Today In Disney History ~ April 22nd


The sign that accompanies the tree says
“On Earth Day April 22, 1991, this majestic Live Oak was placed in its new home before you. This Oak and its companion at the entrance of Disney’s Port Orleans Resort Riverside each weighed 95 tons and were transplanted from a wooded locations 13 miles away. Cypress boxes 22 foot square were constructed around and beneath each Oak and after months of preparation, the transportation took three days. Ol’ Man Iland was then constructed around this Oak as you see it now.

Part of the goal Michele has for The Main Street Mouse is not only to keep members informed, but to create somewhat of a Disney Family by relating to others through personal experiences and opinions. Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others. ~ I enjoy writing personal perspective blogs, doing TMSM Meet Ups for our readers, and keeping the constant interaction going with others, sharing the Disney Magic to people when they can’t be at their Happy Place.
