Here is Walt's famous quote:Originally Posted by Radiobarry
"Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world."
Although the intent of his words are self explanatory, I am including another quote from Mr. Disney in order to clarify and verify "the context":
"It's something that will never be finished. Something that I can keep developing...and adding to."
Walt based much of his rationale for building the park on what was relative to him as a child, in terms of creativity and fun:
"It has that thing - the imagination, and the feeling of happy excitement- I knew when I was a kid."
"We believed in our idea - a family park where parents and children could have fun- together."
Today, more than ever Disneyland is a place that kids and adults can enjoy together. PIXAR has produced the top kids films of the current era. The Disneyland Resort offers high quality attractions that appeal to kids and adults that enjoy contemporary films of all kinds, as well as folks who like non-movie based attractions.
Pixar based attractions are popular because they are filled with imagination and warmth, aka quality. Pixar's John Lasseter used to be a Disneyland CM, and repects Disney tradition.. It is awesome that he's going to have a lot of say with respect to Disney's creative end.
We, cannot expect, however, for Disneyland to remain as it did 40 or 50 years ago - or for any new attractions that are developed to resemble what existed in a distant yesterday. True imagination holds a reverence for the past, but is by its very nature progressive. Long live creativity and the positive change that it represents.
