    Ok guys (and gals), I'd like to try a new game here, and let's see how far we can get. The next poster will put up a disney fact. Can be anything pertaining to Disney. Let's see how long we can keep it going.

    I'll start....

    Did you know- Walt Disney only attended one year of high school?

    Did you know- Walt Disney's own voice was the first film voice of Mickey Mouse, and he continued speaking for Mickey for many years?

    Even after Walt had long-since retired from regularly doing this job for the cartoons in theaters,
    he returned to the recording studio to voice all of the show "opens and closes" as Mickey on the original Mickey Mouse Club TV shows.

    Just give it a little time. It'll catch on! :thumbsup2

    Here's mine:

    Did you know that Paul Winchell, the original voice of Tigger, was a ventriloquist star on TV and in movies in the 1950s and 60s? He was also an amateur medical inventor who held several patents in artificial organ development.

    Keeping with a semi-Tigger theme:

    Did you know that Jim Cummings, the current voice of Tigger and Winnie the Pooh, is also the narrator of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth?

    So... the song, "Let's fly a kite" from Mary Poppins was allegedly included because the kite is a symbol of the women's fraternity Kappa Alpha Theta, or which Walt's wife and daughters were initiated into.

    Did you know...that Fulton's Crab House at DTD was originally named the "Empress Lilly"? Lilly was Walt Disney's wife's name.
