Happy Birthday Walt

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

As I’m sure many of you are aware, today is Walt Disney’s 107th birthday. December 5th always feels a little special, there’s just something about knowing that the greatest visionary the entertainment world will ever know was born on this day 107 years ago. Walt and his company have invented and re-invented the industry again and again over the last century, insuring that Walt’s legacy continues to grow as time marches on. If you’re visiting this site, chances are you have had some aspect of the Walt Disney Company touch your life is a positive way and you have a love for the work Walt and the many cast members that followed have done. As a great song once said, “We Share a Dream Come True” and are connected by our love for the product of the visionary. Happy birthday Walt, and thank you for everything.


Disney.com has redecorated itself for the day in honor of Walt and I think it’s worth checking out. In addition, I’m looking forward to our annual Walt Disney Tribute show on the WDW News Today Podcast this weekend and hope you will join us for a very meaningful program.
