“I like to believe that when I die I’ll get to meet the most influential people in the Disney family who have passed on before me. Especially Howard Ashman and Walt Disney himself.”
"I’ve always wanted to be an animator, but when I took an art class my freshman year of high school my art teacher failed me. I thought I had no hope, but then I remembered that people told Walt that he wasn’t good enough either."
"Walt Disney’s story from dream to struggle to success really inspires me to keep working toward my own dreams knowing that they can come true one day."
“I finally went to Disneyland and after working at WDW I couldn’t help but find that yeah, some things were great and it was a great park, but Walt finally got it right when he designed Walt Disney World.”
“I don’t know why people criticize Meet the Robinson’s animation. I saw nothing wrong with it. In fact, I thought it was amazing! And for people saying it should be in 2D, wasn’t the whole point of the movie and Walt Disney’s vision that we are to “keep moving forward”? Trying new things like CG. I think using 2D would not fit the film at all with that message.”
“I started school last week. I am a junior in college and have been a Psychology major for the past two years. I was sitting in my first class of the semester (a psychology class) and I was thinking about Walt Disney, and how everyone doubted him and yet he made it. It has always been my dream to be a writer. Suddenly I just walked out of the class and walked straight to the Registration office and changed my major to Creative Writing. I couldn’t be happier and I’ll never look back. Thanks Walt!”
“All I’ve ever wanted to be was the next Walt Disney. I don’t know if that will ever happen though. I can only hope and dream for so long.”
"Walt Disney’s story has been such an inspiration to me. Seeing how his dream became a reality and his determination to see the dreams of others come true, it’s incredible. I hope that one day, my dreams of working as an animator for Disney or Pixar will come true."
"I cry every time I hear or see Walt saying "All who come to this happy place, Welcome!" "
"I have always been told I look like Princess Jasmine from Aladdin. I find this very flattering since I love the movie & I think Princess Jasmine is really pretty. Aladdin (as well as other Disney movies) has also helped me to be open to true love which is nice since I don’t have a lot of steady relationships as examples in my life. I cannot thank Walt Disney enough for this & the other lessons his stories have taught me throughout my childhood"
