    A Short Bio On Walt Disney

    Hiya! I Found A Site Where It Had A Short Bio And A Long Bio On Walt. Here's the Short Version Copied, Pasted And Highlited In Bold And Blue!


    Walt Disney was born on December 5, 1901 in Chicago Illinois, to his father Elias Disney, and mother Flora Call Disney. Walt was one of five children, four boys and a girl.

    After Walt's birth, the Disney family moved to Marceline Missouri, Walt lived most of his childhood here.

    Walt had very early interests in art, he would often sell drawings to neighbors to make extra money. He pursued his art career, by studying art and photography by going to McKinley High School in Chicago.

    Walt began to love, and appreciate nature and wildlife, and family and community, which were a large part of agrarian living. Though his father could be quite stern, and often there was little money, Walt was encouraged by his mother, and older brother, Roy to pursue his talents.

    During the fall of 1918, Disney attempted to enlist for military service. Rejected because he was under age, only sixteen years old at the time. Instead, Walt joined the Red Cross and was sent overseas to France, where he spent a year driving an ambulance and chauffeuring Red Cross officials. His ambulance was covered from stem to stern, not with stock camouflage, but with Disney cartoons.

    Once Walt returned from France, he began to pursue a career in commercial art. He started a small company called Laugh-O-Grams, which eventually fell bankrupt. With his suitcase, and twenty dollars, Walt headed to Hollywood to start anew.
    After making a success of his "Alice Comedies," Walt became a recognized Hollywood figure. On July 13, 1925, Walt married one of his first employees, Lillian Bounds, in Lewiston, Idaho. Later on they would be blessed with two daughters, Diane and Sharon .
    In 1932, the production entitled Flowers and Trees(the first color cartoon) won Walt the first of his studio's Academy Awards. In 1937, he released The Old Mill, the first short subject to utilize the multi-plane camera technique.

    On December 21, 1937, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the first full-length animated musical feature, premiered at the Carthay Theater in Los Angeles. The film produced at the unheard cost of $1,499,000 during the depths of the Depression, the film is still considered one of the great feats and imperishable monuments of the motion picture industry. During the next five years, Walt Disney Studios completed other full-length animated classics such as Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, and Bambi.
    Walt Disney's dream of a clean, and organized amusement park, came true, as Disneyland Park opened in 1955. Walt also became a television pioneer, Disney began television production in 1954, and was among the first to present full-color programming with his Wonderful World of Color in 1961.

    Walt Disney is a legend; a folk hero of the 20th century. His worldwide popularity was based upon the ideals which his name represents: imagination, optimism, creation, and self-made success in the American tradition. He brought us closer to the future, while telling us of the past, it is certain, that there will never be such as great a man, as Walt Disney.

    Rofl, You Know You Can't, He's Already Dead

    There's Many Many Rumors Of Where He Was Buried, Such As He Was Frozen And Put Somewhere Underneath The Pirates Of The Caribbean Ride; Which Was His Favorite Ride In The Entire Park.


    I Will Start A Thread On Walt's Long Bio. And This Time I WILL Type It xD

    But For Now The Short 1 Will Remain Like This And As It Says At The End, He Is A Legend And Will Never Be Forgotten.

    Do you mean we can post pictures, but not hyper link them? Like we have to upload them on a picture site, not copy and paste it so it has a direct link?

    She means you shouldn't be able to click on the picture. If you click the picture and it takes you to the site it came from, then it is hot-linked. You would have to save the pictures and upload them to a photo hosting site like photobucket, and just put your source in the post of where the pics came from.

    And as I said before, you need to give credit to the site you took the information from.
