If it weren’t for Walt and his vision, we wouldn’t have any of the Disney magic and fun that exists today. So here’s to the man behind the mouse — we’ll forever be grateful for all that he accomplished during his life!

  1. This man’s vision and actions helped raise and mold my 3- sons into the sharing, caring adults they are. We were fortunate enough to raise our 3- on WDW vacations from the early 90’s until they became adults. The excitement, entertainment, beauty, attention to details, messages, and character that WDW displayed at that time made it so easy to spend the dollars required to visit WDW for over 40 family trips from middle TN during their childhoods. These vacations were some of the best bonding and family fun times we had. Absolutely spoiled them to the Disney magic and I can only hope that with new leadership, the original magic will return again. I never failed to recall on every single visit, Walt’s vision for what he wanted in a park. We always tried to help live that vision on our visits. Happy Birthday Walt, your surviving family should be very proud of you.

  2. I wonder if Iger meant it about my Cousin Walt. His actions will tell the truth if he goes against Walt’s & Roy’s way of doing things then we will know!
