Walt Disney was born in Chicago, his father being an Irish Canadian, his mother of German-American origin. He revealed a talent for drawing and an interest in photography early on.
In 1923 he left for Hollywood and for some years struggled against poverty while producing a series of cartoon films.
In 1927 he had some success with the series called Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, but it was not until September 1928, when Steamboat Willy appeared, the first Mickey Mouse with sound, that he achieved lasting success.
Mickey Mouse became a household word together with such companions as Minnie, Pluto, and – perhaps the favorite of them all – Donald Duck. The Three Little pigs and Snow White and the seven Dwarfs immediately spring to mind.
In 1955 he branched out into a different enterprise – Disneyland, a huge amusement park in southern California.
Disneyland is situated 27 miles south of Los Angeles, at Anaheim. Of all the show-places none is so famous as Disneyland.
This superb kingdom of fantasy linked to technology was created by Walt Disney.
The park is divided into six themes and there is so much to see and do in each that no one would attempt to see all of them in one visit.
Walt Disney died in California at the age of 65. His works have given so much pleasure for many years to many people, young and old, in many countries.
