Walter Elias Disney
When we hear the words Walt Disney we are inclined to think of many things: the company, the movies, Disneyland, Disney World...the list goes on. However this section of DisneyParkHistory.com gives a brief overview of the man we have all grown to love, Walter Elias Disney.
Uncle Walt, as many of the children who worked with him knew him as, was a very amazing man. As a child he lived in the small town of Marcaline, Missouri, a place he always held dear to his heart, and in Walt's eyes the heart and soul of Main Street U.S.A. Walt had a love for drawing and for being inventive, and worked hard at both. It took several years and several road blocks before Walt became a house hold name along with his pal Mickey Mouse.
Walt's early innovations included live action combined with cartoons (Alice Comedies) and cartoons with soundtracks (Steamboat Willie). Walt was definitely someone who believed in his dreams and would always find a way to make them reality.
Thank you Uncle Walt for “dreaming, and building, and working for a better tomorrow.”
