Happy Birthday, Walt!

It's so very fitting that the day before the debut of the new Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom is the birthday of the man who started it all, Walt Disney.

The great man was born on this day in 1901, making this his 111th birthday. Walt started his artistic interests when he was just a boy living in Missouri; the interest would lead to him starting his first animation studio , Laugh-O-Gram. From there, it was only a short eight years to Plane Crazy, the first cartoon starring the now-iconic Disney creation, Mickey Mouse.

"I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse."

Happy Birthday, Mr. Disney. Thank you for all the dreams and all the fun. May your imagination live on forever!
