Imagine if you can that Disney doesn't exist. This means all the Disney Theme Parks such as Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Hong Kong Disneyland and the others were not there. Of course if there were no Disney, then we would not have the beloved characters we know so well, such as Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Goofy, Donald, Daisy and Tinker Bell. With no Disney there would be no Disney Princesses as we know them. Sure Cinderella and many of the other Disney Princesses would still be known, since their stories were adapted from other sources, but not because of Disney. And certainly they would not be loved to the extent that they are today by little girls and big girls alike. Then try to imagine that the most recognized figure in the world today, Mickey Mouse didn't exist. If Walter Elias Disney had never been born, we would have none of the 'friends' we know and love from Disney. We would not have Disneyland. Remember the Mouseketeers? And we would not have Mickey Mouse. Can you imagine life without the Disney influence?
With Mickey being so recognizable his picture makes both children and adults worldwide smile when they see him. What would that central character be if not Mickey? Walt Disney not only created the wonderful empire we know today but he also paved the way for others to create special characters we have known through the years. Hello Kitty and Garfield are two very well known characters that might never have been 'born' if Walt Disney had not created the product we know and love called Disney.
Thanks Walt for having the vision, the patience and the wisdom to create something the world would instantly fall in love with and share with future generations.
If Walt Disney had never been born we would never have the Mickey Mouse Club. No 'it's a small world' and no 'When You Wish Upon A Star'.
Yes Walt, I think you, as I am sure every other Disney fan does. Frankly I can't imagine what live would be like if we didn't have Disney Magic to make us smile.
