You should pay attention the next time you’re visiting Walt Disney World Resort. While visiting this attraction, it’s unlikely for you to see or hear any mosquitoes buzzing around. Doesn’t that sound strange? This is especially peculiar when you consider Florida’s swampland and sticky weather. The rest of this state is covered with these pesky little bloodsuckers. Nonetheless, we can assure you that Disney World not having any mosquitoes is no coincidence. There’s an incredible reason why these annoying insects are nowhere to be seen inside the park gates.
Before Disney World opened its doors in 1971, mosquitoes did roam around this area. So, where did these pesky creatures go to? After the success of California’s Disneyland, the corporation decided to build a resort in this insect-infested state.
Disney had dominated the western side of the country. It was now the company’s objective to get the rest of the population into the magic. That’s why the filmmaker and founder of Disney picked an area in Florida’s Bay Lake.
