    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?

    Yes, Walt had good morals. He didn't put anything 'risky' in his cartoons because he said that, "There is enough of that stuff already out there with out me having to add to it".

    I grew up in Missouri like Walt Disney, not far from the railroad trains which I could hear as I went to sleep at night.
    I have a love for Mickey Mouse. NOT that's there is anything wrong with that!
    People say I sign the "D" in my last name just like the "D" in Disney. (That's not on purpose!)

    How am I like Walt....

    I have a passion for details.

    My middle name is Sidney. Now, switch the 'S' and 'D' around. My mom thinks that's freaky!

    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.
    Here here! Excellent book. It gets my recommendation as well!
    As far as the topic of this thread goes though, I find myself to be a lot like Walt in many ways. This particular book punctuated many similar characteristics. But as far as the simple things go, my ancestry comes from the same area in France as his - d'Isigny, near Normandy!

    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).

    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.
