Lots of people have changed American culture. Some for better, some for worse. But few have had the positive influence that Walter Elias Disney brought to the world of entertainment.

From Steamboat Willie to The Wonderful World of Color to Epcot Center, Walt Disney’s imagination has inspired and delighted generations of Americans. His movies managed to achieve the near impossible task of simultaneously enthralling both children and adults.

In the Disney movie Pinocchio, Jiminy Cricket said it best: “Like a bolt out of the blue, fate steps in and sees you through. When you wish upon a star your dreams come true.”

It's easy to share with friends.


  1. Walt Disney would be proud of what Disney World has become. I can’t believe it is so big. It truly is a world on its own.

  2. You are so right in your thoughts of Walt Disney. All started with just his imagination. What could we do?
