"You can dream,create,design and build, but it requires people to make the dream a reality."
On Dec. 5,1901, Walt Disney, one of the founders of The Walt Disney Company, was born in Chicago, III. After a childhood spent in Marceline, Mo., his career led him to Hollywood. His legendary work earned 32 Oscars-more than anyone to date- and countless other awards and accolades.
Walt was a man persistent on achieving his dreams, from a theme park to ground-breaking animation he was truly one of the greatest creative minds of the 20th century.
Although Walt has been gone nearly 45 years, the legacy of the man who gave the world Mickey Mouse and Disneyland continues to live on through the dedication and passion of all of those who work for the Walt Disney Company.
