8.Walt Disney-Animation Revolutionary
Walt Disney revolutionized the animation industry and children’s entertainment in the 1950s. During his life, he gave the world endless smiles and laughter with the development of Disneyland, and its iconic character, Mickey Mouse. Though he died of lung cancer in 1966, his legacy did not and park officials claim his spirit didn’t either. Walt had an apartment above Main Street in Disneyland, located above the fire station. A light is always left on in Walt’s apartment. This tradition started when a worker turned the light out one night while closing, and when she returned the light was back on. She even heard a voice whisper, “I’m still here.” Since then, the light has always been left burning for Walt.
