Quotations

"Growing old is mandatory but growing up is optional" - Walt disney

"All your dreams come true if you have the courage to pursue them" - Walt disney

The creator of the happiest place on earth

Walt Disney was an ordinary man with extraordinary dreams which lead him to being someone that will keep reminding us to never grow up.

Walt was born in 1901 in Hermosa, Chicago, IL but soon after moved to Kansas City in 1911 which is where he first started getting into art. In 1916 Walt Disney dropped out of high school to hopefully join the army though was rejected because of his age. He was part of the red cross for a short while but soon moved back to Kansas city to start his cartooning career. His first popular cartoon was Oswald the lucky rabbit though his greatest breakthrough was Mickey Mouse. From there his life shot up with him creating the first full length animated movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and the happiest place on earth, Disneyland. My favorite quote that he has said is ,"All your dreams come true if you have the courage to pursue them"(Disney)
