It all started in 1923 when a young man started off with one idea that lead to bigger and better ideas as time went on. Walt Disney imagined what people thought to be the impossible and created a Disney empire that was made up of cartoons, movies, amusement parks, and much more entertainment. To think if Walt Disney never shared his visions with the world, there would be no animation, amusement parks, Mickey Mouse, or any classic Disney movies like Snow White, Mary Poppins, or Beauty and the Beast. Also, children wouldn’t have gotten to experience walking through Cinderella’s Castle into Magic Kingdom, a child’s oasis. Although Walt Disney is no longer with us, the visions he had are now reality and the name Disney has made an impact on society from the animation that was created, to the films he had helped make, and the many amusement parks, hotels, and restaurants he put in the effort to get built.
Walt Disney was born December 5th, 1901 and was born in Chicago Illinois. During Walt’s child hood, his family moved from place to place quite often. During 1906 Walt Disney’s family moved to Marceline, Missouri until 1910 when Elias Disney had to sell the farm because of health problems. Even though Walt didn’t live in Missouri for very long, it had made a significant impact on his life. While he was living in Missouri, it helped spark his imagination in many ways. By Walt living in a low key and agricultural area, he started drawing farm animals which was his very first animations he had produced. This helped him in life because he generated a lot of cartoons with farm animals as characters. By Walt living in Missouri it gave him practice with cartoon animation which helped him highly later in his life.
