3 Walt Disney Quotes"Biggest problem? Well, I'd say it's been my biggest problem all my life. MONEY. It takes a lot of money to make these dreams come true. From the very start it was a problem. Getting the money to open Disneyland. About seventeen million it took. And we had everything mortgaged including my personal insurance.”"I don't want the public to see the world they live in while they're in the Park (Disneyland). I want to feel they're in another world.”"Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.""We believed in our idea - a family park where parents and children could have fun- together.” "Disneyland is a work of love. We didn't go into Disneyland just with the idea of making money.""Disneyland is the star, everything else is in the supporting role.""It has that thing - the imagination, and the feeling of happy excitement- I knew when I was a kid.”
4 Ask Walt What made you name Disneyland "Disneyland"? I thought that my work, and company, had an image of real family. Stuff that all ages could enjoy.If we called it "wonderland," or "fantasy world," who would know that WE made it.Also, it's a nice way to not only sell the park, but also our movies and films.I have two questions: In Disneyland, Walt Disney originally refered to Sleeping Beauty's Castle by an other name? Which Disneyland Park attraction is know as Disneyodendron semperflorens grandis?Ah yes. Well, I referred to it as "Snow White's Castle." Sleeping Beauty wasn't released until 1959.As for your second question: That means "large ever blooming Disney Tree"
