    Dreamfinder Walt metaphor

    I was just listening to some old shows trying to catch up, and I loved the one with the Dreamfinder interview! Which led me to thinking that the Dreamfinder figment relationship almost exacly mimics that of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse. Is this possibly one of the greatest tributes to Walt and Mickey? Or one of the best imagineering hidden treasures? Or am I just crazy?
    What do you guys think?

    I dont think your crazy. Although similar relationships may be unintentional, it speaks to the spirit and legacy that Walt built in the Disney Company. You take an idea, make it your own, and most of a nurture it and suddenly whether its a theme park or a fictitious purple dragon you have something that you can love and be proud of forever (e.i. Mickey or Figment)
