A complete search for all easements assigned by Disney and predecessors.

In part.

It predates Disney as a dirt road:

1965 (through what was then a secret subsidiary):

Absent any evidence of a public right-of-way, and given the fact that 
there was a guard booth at the location of this sign until about 2005, I 
conclude that it is a private road.
