1901 – 1966

Founder of Disneyland

Walter Elias "Walt" Disney (December 5, 1901–December 15, 1966), was an American film producer, director, screenwriter, voice actor, and animator. One of the most well-known motion picture producers in the world, Disney was also the creator of an American-based theme park called Disneyland, and is the co-founder with his brother Roy Oliver Disney of Walt Disney Productions, the highly profitable corporation now known as The Walt Disney Company.

Walt Disney is in particular noted for being a successful storyteller, a hands-on film producer, and a popular showman. He and his staff created a number of the world’s most popular animation properties, including the one many consider Disney’s alter-ego, Mickey Mouse.

Walt was married to Lillian (maiden name Bounds) and he had two daughters - Diane and Sharon. Sharon, who was adopted, died in 1993. Lilian died in December 16, 1997 - 31 years and one day after Walt died.
