    Have You Met any of the Disney Family?

    I'd love to meet a relative of Walt. I'd really like to go back in time and meet Walt. That would be really exciting.

    When I worked for the Disney Stores, I met Roy and on a seperate occasion I actually got to meet Lillian! I couldn't speak at all, it was amazing!

    Who is Lillian? I would love to have met Walt... It would be really cool to meet Roy as well. I don't know if I will get to. I would also love to have met Jim Henson! I want to meet Tim Burton as well

    I never have, but I am proud to say that Walt himself shook my Daddy's hand when he was a little kid while he was walking down Main Street!

    I have not many close relatives of the Disney family. Has anybody ever met another one besides Walt and Roy's sides?

    Walt's daughters were Sharon and Diane. Sharon was adopted, Diane was not. Diane is the only one surviving.

    Re: Have You Met any of the Disney Family?

    I met Diane Disney Miller, her husband Ron, and one of her son's whom I think his name was Walt (? could be way wrong - I just remember he was VERY cute with curling/ wavy black hair and about 30-35) at an event in Sacramento featuring the original Lilly Belle and the Disney Family Trains put on by the Carolwood Historical Society.

    They were all very nice, especially her son!

    When I was a young lad some 45 years ago I met the man himself, a bunch of kids about 10 to 15 in all ran up to him just to say hi.

    He then took us on a tour DL, gave us lifetime passes, was the captn on the JC, took us to lunch at club 33, let us drive the train, took us on a tour of the film studio, I told walt my older brother was mean to me so he kicked him out and said he could never come back. Walt also said that he would like to be put in a slab of ice when he dies. all in all we spent about 4 weeks with walt, he also told me that I could call him any time with any problem and he would me any way he could. I remember the last thing he said to me in one of our telephone calls was that it is ok if they change POTC as long as they put a loop in it.

    Re: Have You Met any of the Disney Family?

    I only chatted with Roy via Email a few times. Nothing much though.



    However my aunt worked for Walt when the Blue Bayou was first opened and she said that he was a nice man who treated his employess like family and always preferred to be called Uncle Walt.

    Re: Have You Met any of the Disney Family?

    I had the great opportunity to meet Roy Disney a few years ago when I was working at Disney Feature Animation (in the Hat building off the 134). He was very nice and personable and asked me how I liked working there. After I left FA I had the chance to meet him again at my doctor's office of all places. It seems he and I have the same doctor!
