  • What do "you" have in common with Walt Disney?

    I thought this might really spark some interesting comments. What do you, yourself, have in common with Walt Disney. I, myself, can only claim that I also was born in Chicago. Those of us that love Disneyland and the other Disney Parks, of course, share his basic spirit and ideals, but I was thinking of perhaps specific things.

    Do you share his first name, second name? Do you have a husband named Walt? A wife named Lillian? You get the idea. Were you born on the same day? December 5th, I believe. Same month?

    So be creative. What do you you have in common with Walt Disney?

      Ummm, my birthday is December 3rd, and my teacher used to jokingly call me Walt Disney, because I loved most all things Disney. yeah that last one had nothing to do with what you asked, oh well. : P

        I think He loved to return to his childhood, and he knew there would be people who would remain young at heart, and would visit his park again and again, for that wonderful feeling of fantasy. I love that feeling still, and I have dated myself many times here, so you know I've been looking at the backside of forty for sometime now!
        I think that is what I have in common with Walt.
        Goin around the world...and back to Disneyland!

            My daughter shares Walt Disney's wife's maiden name.

            We named her Lillian when she was born, and though our last name is spelled slightly different, it shares the same sound and common ancestry.

            We only found out that Walt's wife's name was Lilly Bounds just before our first visit, when Lily was six. We were all pretty surprised.

                    I like to walk around Disneyland and smoke cigarettes.... Hehehe

                    Seriously folks, no one on here has probably met Walt Disney or even his nephew Roy so who are we to project what "Walt would want" or what "Walt would think". It seems a little disingenuous.

                    Besides, he could be a real shark, he was not always sweet as Mickey Mouse, although he was a genius and I have a ton of respect for what he accomplished. But was he really always lovable Uncle Walt when he wasnt on camera? Not sure I really want to know.

                                OK...this isn't really specific to Uncle Walt, but I think interesting all the same. My girlfriend and I share a common love and fascination with all things Disney, particularly Disneyland. The date we first laid eyes on each other was July 17th.
                                "Yesterday, a man walked up to me and said, 'Isn't it a shame that Walt Disney couldn't be here to see this?' and I said, "He did see this, that's why it's here."

                                  Aww... that is so sweet!

                                  I think what I have most in common with Walt is that I like to create new stuff, I love nostalgia and have a strange love for miniatures!

                                  My aunt and a friend of mine were both born on December 5th, and my great-Grandma was born exactly 4 days before Walt (December 01, 1901).
                                  I have a dream
                                  A song to sing
                                  To help me cope
                                  Trough everything

                                  If you see the wonder
                                  of a FairyTale
                                  You can take the future
                                  even if you fail...

                                  I believe in Angels
                                  Something good in everything I see
                                  I believe in Angels
                                  When I know the time is right for me...

                                  I'll cross the stream.... I have a dream

                                    Some people have said that they weren't sure what Walt Disney was really like.

                                    I highly recommend the book How to be Like Walt to these people! It is really more a biography of Walt Disney than a how-to book, but both elements are mixed in. It's a great read and excellent biography of Mr. Disney's life. Many people see him as a sweet uncle or a merciless authoritarian, a hopeless nostalgic or a one-track mind futurist, while really none and all are true at the same time.

                                    Complicated, I know, but a great book nonetheless. Its greatest quality is portraying Walt Disney as he really was; a human being.

                                      My birthday is december 5th, and when i was 16 i had to have a biopsy done on an enlarged clavical lymph node. Walt's lymph nodes were enlarged when his cancer was getting the best of him in the end. My family always thought that was a creepy coinsidence.
