Honor the "Man That Started It All" today.

"If you can dream it, you can do it."

~Walt Disney

"You see? It's just like I told you. Wishes can come true. If you believe in them with all your heart and the best part is: You'll never run out of wishes. They're shining deep, down inside of you. 'Cause that, my friends, is where the magic lives."

~Jiminy Cricket from Magic Kingdom's Wishes :smickey:

Thanks, Walt. If it weren't for you, I would have been inspired to follow my dream and do it. You were one great guy. :thumbsup2

Every time I go to WDW, I wish I could walk down main street and do a little "hopping" with him and see how he would react to what his creation has become. I am sure a number of things would change but overall I think he would be very happy to see what it is today.

I can't think of another person in this world who has been responsible for the Dreams and "magic" that he has brought to so many people young and old alike through Disney Movies and parks and animation-Amazing.
