Thanks for downloading WEDWay Radio, a show about Disney history, Disney Parks and touring. This is episode 120 - Liberty by Disney
On this episode we celebrate American Independence Day by looking at one of Disney's most patriotic films, Johnny Tremain and its legacy in the Disney parks.
Johnny Tremain is based on the 1943 Newberry award winning novel by Esther Forbes and was adapted for the screen by Disney in 1957. The following year Liberty Street was to open at Disneyland, but sadly never came to be. However, when the Magic Kingdom was built in 1971 it was built with Liberty Square and The Liberty Tree from the film.
Enjoy this show because it was a lot of fun to create.
