We all know of the famous man named Walt Disney, we know his movies and of course the magical places he has created.

It is a company that assisted him in the making of most if not all his movies, and is a big part of most movies that require special effects.

But, Disney is still human just like any other. Disney was a man who once was a child new to the world, a young man with a mission of making dreams come true, and a legend that reached one of the highest peaks of success.
During this time Walt Disney had become very influential and popular, appearing everywhere accompanied by the military forces which gave him more credibility.
