|Walt Disney with Mickey Mouse (http://www.newrafael.com/walt-disney-quotes/ (Rafa?l Rozendaal - Official Website))|
Mouse might be a hero to a lot of people, but it is the man behind the mouse
that should get the credit. Walt Elias Disney was an entrepreneur, film director,
animator, but most of all a man that could dream and imagine. He created the
world's best known picture animation company, The Walt Disney Company, but also
influenced the minds of so many people. His movies, theme parks, and resorts
are a getaway for millions of people every year. Disney promotes the quote that
"dreams do come true."
Disney was born on December 5, 1901 in Chicago, Illinois. In his teenage years
he became a cartoon artist and worked for different types of film companies. His
first attempt at a film studio was named Laugh-O-Gram Studio, but Walt decided
to move his studio to the movie capital of the world, Hollywood, California,
where he would draw the world famous Mickey Mouse and open a new studio called
the Disney Brothers' Studio. Mickey's first short movie was called Plane Crazy, but that was not popular
because it was a silent movie. When Steamboat
Willie was realized, Walt's new character was an instant success. Plane Crazy, Steamboat Willie, and all
other films featuring Mickey were provided with a soundtrack. Walt Disney's masterpieces allowed him to win 22 Academy Awards and to create places were dreams come true.
films and attractions are popular for people that are young and old. I believe
that his works promote dreaming and that anything you set your mind to is
possible. Little girls dream of being Disney Princesses and little boys can be
just as silly as Goofy. The Disney Parks even make the Disney films a reality.
Cinderella's Castle, The Tree of Life, and all the other Disney related
attractions make you relive the movie you might have watched. Even just being
in Disney California Adventure or Walt Disney World Resort in Florida make your
vacation feel like a big Disney movie. I can't be the only one when I say that
I dream about being in movies that I've watched.
Disney proves that dreams come true. Everyone has their own dreams, but Walt
proves that even movies can become reality. I want my dreams to come true. I'd
like to become an entrepreneur like Walt Disney was. Also, Walt Disney inspired
the minds the minds of people of every age. I don't believe that just anyone
could do that. His drawing of a mouse sparked into the lives of so many other
fictional characters and movies. How can something small like a mouse turn into
something so big? It all starts with a dream. I'm only a small person in this
world, but I can make a difference.
our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." (Walt Disney)
Everyone's dreams can come true. Dreams can be our goals in life, not just
those silly images that flow through our minds as we sleep. I have my dreams
and you have yours, but now stop and think. Are you on your way to your dreams?
Or is your dream entirely different from what you are pursuing now? Walt Disney
might not have been a firefighter or a scientist, but he was a man that
influenced the lives of so many people. He is a hero for proving that dreams do
come true and inspires me to go and do just that.
