Pixie Dust Fan Disney Podcast Episode 31
Why the WALT in Walt Disney World is so important
It has always been important to me that I call it Walt Disney World. It became a pet peeve of mine when I would see blogs and social media posts referring to it as ‘Disney World’ – I always want to comment” don’t forget WALT”! When I saw some top Disney executives call it ‘Disney World’ I started to doubt myself, is it really supposed to be Walt? Who could I ask to clear this up for me? The best person I knew to talk about the history of Walt would be Jeff Barnes!
Jeff Barnes is is the best-selling author of The Wisdom of Walt: Leadership Lessons from the Happiest Place on Earth and Beyond the Wisdom of Walt: Life Lessons from the Most Magical Place on Earth. Known as Dr. Disneyland, he teaches the only accredited college course on the History of Disneyland. I think this makes him more than qualified to talk about this subject!
It was a blast talking to Jeff and hearing the stories and history of Walt and Roy – and their journey to Walt Disney World
