The archives took it.

I believe that the real answer is.... Who Knows? My gut feeling is that it will turn up someplace. Even the Executives are not stupid enough to not realize how many people would riot if they did something nasty to it. Maybe they even might have donated it to the Air and Space Museum in DC as a national pride exhibit.

I heard a rumor it ended up here... o_O

OK, so I made up that rumor. ;)
But, I too am curious what they have in store for it.
Someone in the Earffel Tower thread mentioned quite a while back that after they removed it from BLT they had changed it's paint scheme back to it's original white with orange and black trim...

Change the name from Mickey One to Waldo One and we have a potential game there.

Would love to see it displayed in the Front entrance of DHS position as it looks like it's taking off to the skies....
This is a pic, that I'm very familiar with, from it's final flight before it landed at the then existing airstrip on WDW property, and was eventually parked on the BLT.
It's definitely not airworthy now, but is definitely a piece of Disney history that, justifiably, needs to be preserved.
And yes, somewhere else on WDW property seems appropriate to me, too...! :)

Disneyavenue has a great amount of pictures including the interior of the plane before it was gutted. Including the pics when it landed on World Drive..http://www.disneyavenue.com/2015/09/walt-disneys-airplane.html

Yep, you are correct...it did indeed land on World Drive...I had forgotten. So cool! :)
I just hope they continue to do it justice.
Although, I realize this is not the Beechcraft Queen Air he originally decided on Florida from, it is the plane he selected the eventual site of all of WDW from...! :)
