Happy Birthday Walt Disney!

December 5th, 2012

Hello Disney lovers. Today is a very special day as it is Walt Disney’s birthday. Any Disney fan both young and old know who Walt Disney is. He is the creator of the entire enterprise that is the Walt Disney Company. I admire him for many different reasons. I think if I had to narrow it down, I would have to say I admire him for two reasons. The first would be his vision. Walt Disney always had a vision of the future. I know I mentioned this before, but one of my favorite stories is how he envisioned Epcot. It is said that even in his hospital bed when he was unfortunately dying of cancer, he was still drawing up plans of what he wanted Epcot to look like. That’s the vision I think Walt Disney had. He was always thinking no matter where he was. The other thing I admired about Walt Disney is his family values. If you were to go on Disney’s Carrousel of Progress, you would hear the narrator explain how much Walt Disney loved the American family. For this reason, I often wonder if Walt himself would approve of such Disney shows as Hannah Montana and The Suite Life of Zach and Cody. I also wonder if Walt would approve of the exact layout of the Magic Kingdom. Don’t get me wrong, the park is set up beautifully. However, the mad rush to the exits after the fireworks display Wishes is always something that concerns me and is also something I’m sure would concern Walt as well. There are many things though that I’m sure Walt would approve of about his beloved park and overall product. These things include seeing the smiles on children’s faces when they see their favorite Disney character. These moments make for timeless memories for both parents and children alike and are a wonderful reflection of Walt Disney. Happy birthday Walt from all Disney lovers around the world. How has Walt Disney inspired you? Please post your comments and birthday wishes to Walt below or E-mail us at with your best wishes. For now though, as always, have a magical day!
