What is the purpose of the Disney Legend program? What does it take to become a Disney legend? Does anybody really care about the process at all. The reason I pose these questions is that in the realm of Disneyland the term "Disney Legend" is thrown out there quite a bit. Disney Legends Bob Gurr, Marty Sklar, Harper Goff, or even Mary Blair are all MAJOR contributors to how Disneyland developed. It made me admire these creative and trail-blazing people even more. Yet lately it seems that many of the inductees are people I've never heard of. (that's not to say i'm so arrogant to think I know everyone who makes a significant contribution to Disney Co) Now I do know that the Disney Legends program covers all divisions of Disney not just the parks, however when people I am aware of like Betty White, or Bea Arthur, or Frank Gifford, with fairly small Disney ties, are inducted as Disney Legends it makes me wonder if this distinction is really relevant anymore or indeed if it ever was.
