    Okay. I knew about ABC and Disney connection. But I did npt see the Regis and Disney connection.

    Oh! Hasn't he done the MK Christmas parade? Is that what makes him a Disney Legend? That's it!

    This is so well deserved! She is an amazing woman..after seeing her on PCC 2.0 I am a fan for life. Her performance brought me to tears. I watched her sign every last thing we all brought her with a smile on her face and she was just as sweet to the last person in line as she was to the first! To top it all off she came to our gathering on Castaway and just hung out! Watching Ferris cuddle in her husbands arms was a site to be seen!!

    A truly beautiful person both inside and out!

    REGIS PHILBIN is an Emmy Award-winning, cultural icon who has entertained millions of people through talk shows, game shows, books and albums for more than 50 years. For the past 23 years, Americans have woken up to Philbin, thanks to the nationally syndicated hit talk show LIVE! with Regis and Kelly which originated in 1983 when Philbin created The Morning Show for WABC in New York. In addition to his daytime success, Philbin launched ABC’s Who Wants To Be A Millionaire into a primetime powerhouse and hosted a variety of shows including NBC’s America’s Got Talent, CBS’ Million Dollar Password, and the 37th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

    He works for ABC.....a subsidiary of the Disney Company.

    Barbara Walters works for ABC.

    Also...a Disney Legend.

    Basically, he's a Legend, and he works for Disney. Ergo, Disney Legend.
