Walt Disney’s Birthday

Walt Disney was born December 5, 1901.  Yesterday, if Walt Disney was still alive, he would have been 108.

Some people actually live that long.  Walt Disney did not.  Not even close.

Walt Disney’s death on December 15, 1966 shocked the world.

It didn’t shock The Walt Disney World Resort, because construction for Walt Disney World hadn’t begun at the time of Walt Disney’s death.

Walt Disney World, or, EPCOT – Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow – as it was called at the time of Walt Disney’s death, did not open until October 1, 1971.

People can only begin to fantasize about what the World would be like if Walt Disney were still alive.
