Words of Walt- Progress

“The age we’re living in is the most extraordinary the world has ever seen.  There are whole new concepts of things, and we now have the tools to change these concepts into realities. We’re moving forward.  In terms of my work, I believe people want to know about this universe that keeps unfolding before them.  But let’s be clear about one thing-  I’m not trying to teach anything to anybody.   I want to entertain the public.”

What is mind boggling to me is how much the world and technology has changed since Walt’s passing in 1966.  51 years later I think the world would be unrecognizable to Walt, yet Disney continues to push the boundaries with technology and entertainment.  I like to think that in that regard Walt would be happy.

 

Words of Walt- Adversity

“All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles have strengthened me.”

While the name Walt Disney is a household name these days, he didn’t have the easiest start.  He grew up with a harsh father, was fired from several of his early jobs, struggled financially in his early business years, and had just as many failures as he did successes; but Walt never gave up.  From each of his failures he learned and moved on.  When one thinks of Walt Disney we often don’t think of his failures, but his successes and the empire that he laid the base for.

Words of Walt

“People still think of me as a cartoonist, but the only thing I lift a pen or pencil for these days is to sign a contract, a check, or an autograph.”

It still amazes me to think of Walt’s humble beginnings and the empire that he has built.  He started as a struggling cartoonist and was able to create something truly wonderful.

Words of Walt- Animated Films

“Because the eye is the most sensitive and dependable of our sense organs, the motion picture offers the widest, direct avenue to our emotions.  Whereas the still picture can suggest only a fragment of fact or fiction, the cartoon-in-motion is without limit in communicating ideas, events, and human relations.”

Words of Walt- Mickey Mouse

This is probably one of the most famous quotes by Walt Disney, and one of my all time favorites-

“I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing- that it was all started by a mouse.”

To me this quote is a symbol and a beacon of what Disney is.  There is SO much that goes on at Disney on a daily basis.  So much to see and do, but don’t lose sight of the fact that it was all started by a mouse, something small.  It’s not always about the large moments, sometimes it’s about the small things.

Words of Walt-Mickey Mouse

“Mickey Mouse is, to me, a symbol of independence.  He was a means to an end.  He popped out of my mind onto a drawing pad twenty years ago on a train from Manhattan to Hollywood at a time when business fortunes of my brother Roy and myself were at lowest ebb and disaster seemed right around the corner.  Born of necessity, the little fellow literally freed us of immediate worry.  He provided the means for expanding our organization to its present dimensions and for extending the medium of cartoon animation toward new entertainment levels.  He spelled production liberation for us.”

Words of Walt- Business Model

“To try to keep an operation like Disneyland going you have to pour it in there.  It’s what I call ‘Keeping the show on the road.’  Not just new attractions, but keeping it staffed properly… you know, never letting your personnel get sloppy, never let them be unfriendly.  That’s been our policy all our lives.  My brother and I have done that and that is what has built our organization.”

I think that one of the greatest things about Disney and one of the things that keeps me coming back over and over again.  The customer service is outstanding.  There are very few companies that maintain such high standards, and I am thankful that Disney does!
