You can find anything on the web. I wanted to find some of my favorite Disney quotes, and wouldn’t you know it, they are housed in a website called Disneydreamer.com.. There are so many, but I picked the ones that really spoke to me and help illustrate the magic that is unique to Disney.
“Part of the Disney success is our ability to create a believable world of dreams that appeals to all age groups. The kind of entertainment we create is meant to appeal to every member of the family.” —Walt Disney
“Why be a governor or senator when you can be king of Disneyland?” —Walt Disney
“The fun is in always building something. After it’s built, you play with it awhile and then you’re through. You see, we never do the same thing twice around here. We’re always opening up new doors.” —Walt Disney
“Tomorrow will be better for as long as America keeps alive the ideals of freedom and a better life.” —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.” —Walt Disney
“My business is making people, especially children, happy.” —Walt Disney
“It has that thing – the imagination, and the feeling of happy excitement – I knew when I was a kid.”—Walt Disney
“Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.”—Walt Disney
“To all that come to this happy place: welcome. Disneyland is your land.”—Walt Disney
And, no compilation of Walt Disney quotes would be complete without this one:
“I only hope that we don’t lose sight of one thing – that it was all started by a mouse.”—Walt Disney
