Personal Thoughts

  • I think Walt Disney was successful because of him making Walt Disney. So many people go there now and they make alot of money. He did so many things to get to where he is now. He renowned Mickey Mouse cartoons and made the first sound cartoon, alos the first technicolor cartoon. If it wasnt for him today we wouldnt be watching Mickey mOuse, Frozen, or any Disney movies
