Today is Walt Disney’s birthday. Walt Disney was a man of vision who has touched all our lives in some small way, and continues to do so through our children. In honor of his Birthday I am posting my favorite Disney quote. I remember the first time I went to Disneyland. I was 15 years old and the joy I felt at being there was overwhelming. I grew up watching the Mickey Mouse Club and The Wonderful World of Disney so when I actually stood in this place that I had only dreamed about…….it was truly magical. I have never lost that feeling. It returns again and again every time I visit Disneyland. That’s why this is my favorite Disney quote. If you have one please share it too. Happy Birthday Walt!
” To all who come to this happy place… welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America. With the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.” – Walt Disney
The man was a visionary.
For good or ill, his dreams have shaped America and generations of people around the world.
Though I still think he’s living in Brazil somewhere ;-)
We have a garge FULL of Topolino magazines (Italiano for Mickey Mouse) – my 12 year old collects them very seriously – he even buys old copies from Ebay – and he reads them all on a regular basis – old and new alike!! ps I’ve got snowflakes now too!!!!
It’s mind-boggling to think of how much influence he’s had on American culture…
Lovin’ the snow on your blog!
How, how, how could I have missed my hero’s birthday? Thanks for the reminder! I’ll just wish him a belated birthday. My favorite quote? “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible!”
my first xmas ornament was a brass mickey mouse with my name on it, so I personally blame her for my addiction to all things disney……..
