challenges

Disney faced numerous obstacles,he was put to work at just nine years old, he only had an eighth-grade education and almost no formal training in art, and suffered multiple business setbacks. However, he saw these not as failings but as the things that helped to make him the great visionary and businessman he became.Walt could not find the money to build Disneyland. The only way he could see was in doing television. But the major Hollywood studios put pressure on each other not to support television production as it would ruin the movie business.

Walt took courage and went with television anyway. From it, we have classics like The Mickey Mouse Club, and The Wonderful World of Color. Moreover, Walt gained the financing to open Disneyland
