Walt Disney and It’s A Small World
“You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.”
Happy 50th anniversary to It’s A Small World!
It’s the 50th anniversary of the 1964 New York World’s Fair! Walt Disney and the imagineers were an integral part of the most popular pavilions at the Fair. Here Walt is explaining the production of Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln for the State of Illinois Pavilion at the Fair. Walt was a huge admirer of President Lincoln, and this was a personal passion of his. These GIFs are taken from Disneyland Goes to the World’s Fair (1964).

"Almost everyone warned us that Disneyland would be a Hollywood spectacular - a spectacular failure. But they were thinking about an amusement park, and we believed in our idea - a family park where parents and children could have fun - together." - Walt Disney (x)
