    Walt in Disneyland: Happy 110th Birthday, Walt.

    "I am interested in entertaining people, in bringing pleasure, particularly laughter, to others, rather than being concerned with 'expressing' myself with obscure creative impressions."







    "We did it - Disneyland - in the knowledge that most of the people I talked to thought it would be a financial disaster - closed and forgotten within the first year."









    "When I started on Disneyland, my wife used to say, 'But why do you want to build an amusement park? They're so dirty.' I told her that was just the point - mine wouldn't be."









    "Whenever I go on a ride, I'm always thinking of what's wrong with the thing and how it can be improved."







    "We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths."









    "I don't want the public to see the world they live in while they're in the Park (Disneyland). I want to feel they're in another world."



    Happy 110th, Walt, wherever you may be.

    Happy Birthday, Walt Disney!

    Thank you for the inspirational and creative endeavors you have done to change the entertainment world forever and as well as the theme park industry. Thank you for creating the beloved classic animated films, Mickey Mouse, Disney Name, and of course, Disneyland! Without you, the world will be a pretty dull place. You're a creative visionary genius that people can look up to and inspire. We still miss you.

    We were sent over there with the message that only we would defend Disney quality.. We learnt quickly that the Japanese culture speaks to a level of quality that is hard to comprehend. They were all unbelievably skilled and willing to do the right thing.

    Walter Elias Disney I cannot express my gratitude enough for your wonderful curious and experimental attitude. When people feared a new technology you saw the usefulness of it and applied to Disneyland. Your dreams were not like any other there are very few like you anymore. Uncle Walt if your watching me type this still marveling at the sight of computers I promise you that when I go to imagineering you will not be disappointed. The world still misses you. Rest in Piece.

    I just thought about how ironic it is that on his birthday, we're the ones getting the gifts.

    What an amazing man. One of those few people to actually care about product, not only as a source of profit, but as a way to make the world a little better. And not only that, one of the few geniuses to realise that even if it doesn't directly contribute to the bottom line, it is still vital to making a profit.

    He's the ultimate example that if you do what you enjoy, you'll end up making a lot more money off of it than if you simply want to make money off of it.

    Great pictures and tribute to a great man. I am fortunate to share the same day with him and went to the parks for it. Sadly nobody really seemed to know nor seemed to care, but I did as well as all of us. Thanks Walt for the good times and the imagination.
