Walt Disney was an amazing person that achieved his success through perseverance, hard work, and an incredible imagination. His life story is one that is filled with an unyielding spirit to prevail despite many early hardships and failures.
You can learn more about the story of Walt Disney the man at an often overlooked Disney World attraction called Walt Disney: One Man's Dream located in Disney's Hollywood Studios. While guests rush to get to the nearby Toy Story Mania, there are rarely crowds entering the attraction to learn more about the man who started it all.
