    Lightbulb The number 50 and how it ties into Walt's life in memory...

    There are a few interesting events that happened in Walt Disney's life that have the number 50 in them, connecting memories of his life with Disneyland's 50th!! I thought I would share these fun facts with all my fellow Walt fans Anyone else have any to share?
    The war ended by the Ambulance Corps still needed 50 more men, and Walt was the 50th selected. He made his way to France.

    Roy helped him get a position as an apprentice at the Pesmen-Rubin Commercial Art Studio in 1919, where he drew horses, cows, and bags of feed for farm-equipment catalogues. Of course, he didn't ask what he'd be paid: the princely sum of $50 a month.

    Walts parents, Elias and Flora celebrated their 50th anniversary the year she passed.

    Walts first attempt on television His first small-screen effort was "One Hour in Wonderland" which aired on Christmas Day in 1950.
