Leaving New York with no source of income, Walt Disney boarded a train to the West coast via Kansas City where he once housed a mouse named Mortimer. Always the optimist, Mr. Disney thus created another optimist, a mouse named Mickey. The two, never say die characters, "worked" together to create the foundation of a magical company that today reaches the hearts of children young and old the world over. Walt Disney may have left this earth in 1966 but his spirit lives on in that magical quote "I hope we never forget that this was all started by a mouse." (or something like that) Always humble, Walt Disney is one of my heroes.
