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.

„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

„Well, my greatest reward, I think, is that I've been able to build this wonderful organization.“

— Walt Disney
Context: Well, my greatest reward, I think, is that I've been able to build this wonderful organization. I've been able to enjoy good health, and the way I feel today, I feel like I can still go on being part of this thing after forty some odd years of business, and also, to have the public appreciate and accept what I've done all these years. That, that is a great reward. … Well of course, happiness is a state of mind. You can be happy or you can be unhappy. It's just according to the way you look at things. You know. So I think happiness is contentment but it doesn't mean you have to have wealth. But all individuals are different. Some of us just wouldn't be satisfied with just carrying out a routine job and being happy. Yet I envied those people. I had a brother who I really envied because he was a mailman. But he's the one that had all the fun. He had himself a trailer, and he used to go out and go fishing, and he didn't worry about payrolls and stories and picture grosses or anything. And he was the happy one. I always said, "He's the smart Disney." Interview with Fletcher Markle (25 September 1963) in Walt Disney: Conversations (2006) edited by Kathy Merlock Jackson [http://waltdatedworld.bravepages.com/id140.htm The Walt Disney Story (1973)]

„Deeds rather than words express my concept of the part religion should play in everyday life.“

— Walt Disney
Context: Deeds rather than words express my concept of the part religion should play in everyday life. I have watched constantly that in our movie work the highest moral and spiritual standards are upheld, whether it deals with fable or with stories of living action.

„I told her that was just the point — mine wouldn't be.“

— Walt Disney
Context: When I started on Disneyland, my wife used to say, "But why do you want to build an amusement park? They're so dirty." I told her that was just the point — mine wouldn't be. As quoted in [http://www.viamagazine.com/top_stories/articles/ride_yourlife05.asp "The Rides of Passage" in Via magazine (July 2005)]

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

— Walt Disney
Context: All the adversity I've had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me... You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you. As quoted in The Story of Walt Disney (1957)

„Here in Florida … we have something special we never enjoyed at Disneyland — the blessing of size.“

— Walt Disney
Context: Here in Florida … we have something special we never enjoyed at Disneyland — the blessing of size. There's enough land here to hold all the ideas and plans we can possibly imagine.

„To retreat from any of the principles handed down by our forefathers, who shed their blood for the ideals we still embrace, would be a complete victory for those who would destroy liberty and justice for the individual.“

— Walt Disney
Context: To me, today, at age sixty-one, all prayer, by the humble or highly placed, has one thing in common: supplication for strength and inspiration to carry on the best human impulses which should bind us together for a better world. Without such inspiration, we would rapidly deteriorate and finally perish. But in our troubled time, the right of men to think and worship as their conscience dictates is being sorely pressed. We can retain these privileges only by being constantly on guard and fighting off any encroachment on these precepts. To retreat from any of the principles handed down by our forefathers, who shed their blood for the ideals we still embrace, would be a complete victory for those who would destroy liberty and justice for the individual.
