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 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!

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 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.

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!
