Walt Disney

Yesterday, Dec. 5, was Walt Disney‘s birthday! And in honor of this legendary fellow, Disney announced an amazing addition to EPCOT!

Zach Riddley, Walt Disney Imagineer, shared the exciting news on Instagram: “Today – on Walt Disney’s birthday – we are reminded of his legacy of hope. Walt showed us all the potential we have to dream of a better future and how important and special it is to bring that future to life.  As we shared at D23 Expo last year, that dreamer’s spirit inspired us to feature a new statue of Walt as part of the new World Celebration neighborhood in EPCOT, in a location we are appropriately calling Dreamer’s Point.

Walt said, ‘EPCOT will always be in a state of becoming…’ and it’s that spirit of potential and possibility that inspires all we are bringing to life in the transformation of EPCOT.

In celebration of today, I hope you’re encouraged to dream big and inspire others as we dream of a better future we can make a reality together.”

  1. Walt Disney is the epitome of being an American!!!
    In so many ways has he been an inspiration to everyone. My family is a Disney family all the way!!! We love the parks atmosphere, architecture, and crowds. What a value in a one day admission. We’ve been a pass holders for many years. The effect it has had on my family is indescribable. I wish we could thank the entire Disney family personally.
