    Fun Fact

    Lux Radio Theater (sponsored by Lux soap) was a live radio show that began in October 1934 on the NBC Blue Network (which ironically would become the Disney-owned ABC). The series first aired on Sunday afternoons before switching to Monday evenings. It was based on popular Broadway shows and films of the day. As original castmembers were often used to re-create their roles, many of Hollywood's biggest names appeared on the weekly hour-long program.

    The work Walt did for the 1964 New York World's Fair was of tremendous use to him for planning a second theme park.* The fair proved that people on the East Coast were receptive to Disney-style attractions.

    Disney Quote of the Day

    "Mickey is the symbol of American hopefulness: We'll get through this, we'll whistle through bad times. Americans put their dreams into this little character. He never lost his cheerfulness, never became a cynic. People identify with his personality, his eternal optimism."
    - Roy E. Disney on Mickey Mouse
