    ”Mickey actually reminds me of a simpler time to be a kid. Before MTV, double entendres, and a wink at the audience, there was this little mouse that seemed to make a child pretty darned happy. So, I confess, I still feel a soft spot for the ol' guy.”
    -Actor Jason Alexander

    The United States Government, through the Library of Congress, has each year since 1989 named 25 films it deems as "culturally, historically, or esthetically important." So far, 5 Disney films (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Fantasia, Pinocchio, Steamboat Willie, and Beauty and the Beast) have been added.

    "When you're lying on your back and see all the smoke billow up around the windows before you rocket off, that's just like it is inside the space shuttle." - Winston Scott (retired astronaut & executive director of the Florida Space Authority in Cape Canaveral) on Epcot's Mission:SPACE

    "It's really two buildings leaning against each other. And I want to congratulate the architect ... Dean Martin. I have a lovely room with complete privacy, except in the bathtub which Donald Duck shares with me. Have you ever tried bathing with a duck who was playing with his rubber man? I ordered lunch from room service. Snow White brought it in and I was afraid to eat the apple. I don't dare drink the water because that was delivered by Pluto."

    Disney Legend Paul Frees (the voice of the Haunted Mansion's Ghost Host) was often called upon in the 1950s and 1960s to "re-loop" the dialogue of other actors, often to correct for foreign accents, lack of English proficiency, or poor line readings by non-professionals.

    Stormalong Bay, Walt Disney World's Beach Club Resort swimming area, holds 750,000 gallons of water ... making it possibly the largest sand-bottom pool in the world.
