    I don't really know what to say about him. People like Walt don't come along very often. He truly was a special guy and that is evident by what he has left behind. Even with Michael Eisner pushing Disney into the ground (matter of opinion), it is still the most special place on earth and it still manages to give that warm feeling. It takes a true genious to leave that kind of a mark on society.

    Mr. Walt set such a standard! He never "settled" for anything regardless if it was his cartoons, movies, projects, tv shows & theme parks- which is how it should be! It's too bad that's not the way it is anymore!

    he was a fixture in the house when we were growing up. We had to be good or we couldnt watch Mr.Disney...

    When the TV was out for a spell we had to go to our aunts and uncles houses - but we only got to choose one program- It was always the Wonderful World of disney....
