Walter Elias "Walt" Disney è stato un animatore, imprenditore, regista e produttore cinematografico statunitense. Annoverato come uno dei principali cineasti del XX secolo, riconosciuto come il padre dei film d'animazione, Walt Disney ha inoltre creato Disneyland, il primo e più famoso dei parchi a tema.

Walt Disney è altresì noto per la sua grande abilità nella narrazione di storie, per essere stato una grande star televisiva e uno dei più grandi artisti del XX secolo nel campo dell'intrattenimento; il suo contributo più grande alla settima arte risiede però probabilmente nell'aver portato allo stato dell'arte il rapporto fra immagine e musica. Con i suoi collaboratori ha creato molti dei più famosi personaggi dei cartoni animati del mondo; uno di questi, Topolino, è secondo molti il suo alter ego. Inoltre detiene tutt'oggi il record di nomination di suoi film all'Oscar . Walt Disney ha inoltre vinto il David di Donatello per il miglior produttore straniero nel 1956 per Lilli e il vagabondo.

In tutta la sua carriera artistica ha vinto 26 Premi Oscar dato che fa di lui il più premiato della storia e un David di Donatello.

„Credevo che Disneyland fosse unica al mondo, invece ora ho visto l'originale.“

— Walt Disney
in visita al Tivoli di Copenaghen; citato in James Stewart-Gordon, La Danimarca, Paese felice

„Amo Topolino più di qualsiasi donna abbia mai conosciuto.“

— Walt Disney
citato in Daniela Castelli, il Citazionario n. 1, Simonelli Editore, 2012

„We felt that the public, and especially the children, like animals that are cute and little. I think we are rather indebted to Charlie Chaplin for the idea.“

— Walt Disney
Context: We felt that the public, and especially the children, like animals that are cute and little. I think we are rather indebted to Charlie Chaplin for the idea. We wanted something appealing, and we thought of a tiny bit of a mouse that would have something of the wistfulness of Chaplin — a little fellow trying to do the best he could. Stating that the development of the Mickey Mouse character was inspired by Charlie Chaplin's character "the Tramp", as quoted in How to Be Like Walt : Capturing the Disney Magic Every Day of Your Life (2004) by Pat Williams and Jim Denney, p. 52

„Fantasy, if it's really convincing, can't become dated, for the simple reason that it represents a flight into a dimension that lies beyond the reach of time.“

— Walt Disney
Context: Fantasy, if it's really convincing, can't become dated, for the simple reason that it represents a flight into a dimension that lies beyond the reach of time. In this new dimension, whatever it is, nothing corrodes or gets run down at the heel or gets to look ridiculous like, say, the celluloid collar or the bustle. As quoted in "The Rides of Passage" in Via magazine (July 2005)

„Life is composed of lights and shadows, and we would be untruthful, insincere, and saccharine if we tried to pretend there were no shadows. Most things are good, and they are the strongest things; but there are evil things too, and you are not doing a child a favor by trying to shield him from reality. The important thing is to teach a child that good can always triumph over evil, and that is what our pictures attempt to do.“

— Walt Disney
Context: I don't believe in playing down to children, either in life or in motion pictures. I didn't treat my own youngsters like fragile flowers, and I think no parent should. Children are people, and they should have to reach to learn about things, to understand things, just as adults have to reach if they want to grow in mental stature. Life is composed of lights and shadows, and we would be untruthful, insincere, and saccharine if we tried to pretend there were no shadows. Most things are good, and they are the strongest things; but there are evil things too, and you are not doing a child a favor by trying to shield him from reality. The important thing is to teach a child that good can always triumph over evil, and that is what our pictures attempt to do.

„The worst of us is not without innocence, although buried deeply it might be.“

— Walt Disney
Context: I do not make films primarily for children. I make them for the child in all of us, whether we be six or sixty. Call the child "innocence". The worst of us is not without innocence, although buried deeply it might be. In my work I try to reach and speak to that innocence, showing it the fun and joy of living; showing it that laughter is healthy; showing it that the human species, although happily ridiculous at times, is still reaching for the stars. As quoted in A Walt Disney World Resort Outing : The Only Vacation Planning Guide Exclusively for Gay and Lesbian Travelers (2002) by Dann Hazel and Josh Fippen, p. 211

„To all who come to this happy place: Welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future.“

— Walt Disney
Context: To all who come to this happy place: Welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America; with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world. Speech on the opening day of Disneyland (17 July 1955) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bf2TMwtCUr4

„EPCOT will be an experimental prototype community of tomorrow that will take its cue from the new ideas and new technologies that are now emerging from the creative centers of American industry. It will be a community of tomorrow that will never be completed, but will always be introducing and testing and demonstrating new materials and systems.“

— Walt Disney
Context: EPCOT will be an experimental prototype community of tomorrow that will take its cue from the new ideas and new technologies that are now emerging from the creative centers of American industry. It will be a community of tomorrow that will never be completed, but will always be introducing and testing and demonstrating new materials and systems. And EPCOT will always be a showcase to the world for the ingenuity and imagination of American free enterprise.

„That's the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They forget.“

— Walt Disney
Context: That's the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They forget. They don't remember what it's like to be twelve years old. They patronize; they treat children as inferiors. I won't do that. I'll temper a story, yes. But I won't play down, and I won't patronize. From Walt Disney World: Then, Now, & Forever: Too many people grow up. That's the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They forget. They don't remember what it's like to be 12 years old. They patronize, they treat children as inferiors. Well, I won't do that. I won't do that. I'll temper a story, yes. But I won't play down, and I won't patronize.
