Well it took many years. I started with many ideas, threw them away, started all over again. And eventually it evolved into what you see today at Disneyland

Walt Disney

Here is adventure. Here is romance. Here is mystery. Tropical rivers – silently flowing into the unknown. The unbelievable splendor of exotic flowers … the eerie sound of the jungle … with eyes that are always watching. This is Adventureland.

Disneyland is a work of love. We didn't go into Disneyland just with the idea of making money.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Walt Disney

I think what I want Disneyland to be most of all is a happy place - a place where adults and children can experience together some of the wonders of life, of adventure, and feel better because of it.

By Anonym 20 Sep

Walt Disney

You can be happy or you can be unhappy. It's just according to the way you look at things.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Walt Disney

Childishness? I think it's the equivalent of never losing your sense of humor. I mean, yes there's a certain something that you retain. It's the equivalent of not getting so stuffy that you can't laugh at others.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Walt Disney

You reach a point where you don't work for money.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Walt Disney

Animation can explain whatever the mind of man can conceive. This facility makes it the most versatile and explicit means of communication yet devised for quick mass appreciation.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Walt Disney

Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Walt Disney

The life and ventures of Mickey Mouse have been closely bound up with my own personal and professional life. It is understandable that I should have sentimental attachment for the little personage who played so big a part in the course of Disney Productions and has been so happily accepted as an amusing friend wherever films are shown around the world. He still speaks for me and I still speak for him.

Walt Disney

If you can dream it, you can do it.

Walt Disney

When I'm dead I don't want a funeral. I want people to remember me alive.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Walt Disney

To some people, I am kind of a Merlin who takes lots of crazy chances, but rarely makes mistakes. I've made some bad ones, but fortunately, the successes have come along fast enough to cover up the mistakes. When you go to bat as many times as I do, and continually improve upon your mistakes, you're bound to get a good average.

Walt Disney

The fairy tale of film—created with the magic of animation—is the modern equivalent of the great parables of the Middle Ages. Creation is the word. Not adaptation. We can translate the ancient fairy tale into its modern equivalent without losing the lovely patina and savor of its once-upon-a-time quality. We have proved that age-old kind of entertainment based on the classic fairy tale recognizes no young, no old.

Walt Disney

Any dream is possible, if you have courage.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Walt Disney

It seems to me shallow and arrogant for any man in these times to claim he is completely self-made, that he owes all his success to his own unaided efforts. Many hands and hearts and minds generally contribute to anyone's notable achievements.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Walt Disney

Somehow, I can't believe that there are any heights that can't be scaled by a man by a man who knows the secret of making dreams come true. The special secret it seems to me is summarized in four C's. They are Curiosity, Courage, Confidence and Constancy. And the greatest of all is Confidence. When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionably.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Walt Disney

Do not be fooled by its commonplace appearance. Like so many things, it is not what outside, but what is inside that counts.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Walt Disney

Being a celebrity doesn't even seem to keep the fleas off our dogs — and if being a celebrity won't give me an advantage over a couple of fleas, then I guess there can't be much in being a celebrity after all.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Walt Disney

I don't believe in playing down to children, either in life or in motion pictures. I didn't treat my own youngsters like fragile flowers, and I think no parent should.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Walt Disney

Mickey was simply a little personality assigned to the purposes of laughter.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Walt Disney

Every child is born blessed with a vivid imagination.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Walt Disney

My persistence is the measure of the belief I have in myself.

Walt Disney

As the original 'Mary Poppins' budget of five million dollars continued to grow, I never saw a sad face around the entire Studio. And this made me nervous. I knew the picture would have to gross 10 million dollars for us to break even. But still there was no negative head-shaking. No prophets of doom. Even Roy was happy. He didn't even ask me to show the unfinished picture to a banker. The horrible thought struck me - suppose the staff had finally conceded that I knew what I was doing.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Walt Disney

The ideal set-up would be the story man, the director, and the layout man, as well as musician, operating as a sort of story unit. They all should be keenly interested in the picture. No one in person should donate to an extent where he would keep the others from entering into the production and freely expressing themselves.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Walt Disney

To captivate our varied and worldwide audience of all ages, the nature and treatment of the fairy tale, the legend, the myth have to be elementary, simple. Good and evil, the antagonists of all great drama in some guise, must be believably personalized. The moral ideals common to all humanity must be upheld. The victories must not be too easy. Strife to test valor is still and will always be the basic ingredient of the animated tale, as of all screen entertainments.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Walt Disney

In learning the art of storytelling by animation, I have discovered that language has an anatomy.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Walt Disney

It's always a challenge bringing a great story classic to the screen. Giving visual form to the characters and places that have only existed in the imagination. But it's the kind of challenge we enjoy.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Walt Disney

Happiness is a state of mind. It's just according to the way you look at things.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Walt Disney

I think it’s important to have a good hard failure when you're young. I learned a lot out of that. Because it makes you kind of aware of what can happen to you. Because of it I’ve never had any fear in my whole life when we’ve been near collapse and all of that. I’ve never been afraid. I’ve never had the feeling I couldn’t walk out and get a job doing something.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Walt Disney

The mind is the pilot. We think of things before the body does them.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Walt Disney

We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Walt Disney

It has that thing - the imagination, and the feeling of happy excitement- I knew when I was a kid.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Walt Disney

I don't know if it's art, but I know I like it.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Walt Disney

We like to have a point of view in our stories, not an obvious moral, but a worthwhile theme. ... All we are trying to do is give the public good entertainment. That is all they want.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Walt Disney

Women are the best judges of anything we turn out. Their taste is very important. They are the theatergoers; they are the ones who drag the men in. If the women like it, to heck with the men.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Walt Disney

We have created characters and animated them in the dimension of depth, revealing through them to our perturbed world that the things we have in common far outnumber and outweigh those that divide us.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Walt Disney

When we consider a project, we really study it-not just the surface idea, but everything about it. And when we go into that new project, we believe in it all the way. We have confidence in our ability to do it right. And we work hard to do the best possible job.

We call it EPCOT, spelled E-P-C-O-T: Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. Here it is in larger scale. EPCOT will take its cue from the new ideas and new technologies that are now emerging from the creative centers of American industry. It will be a community of tomorrow that will never be completed, but will always be introducing and testing and demonstrating new materials and systems. And EPCOT will always be a showcase to the world for the ingenuity and imagination of American free enterprise.
