A collection of interviews with animators and staff of Disney animation studios and Disneyland, all old timers, most of whom have passed. It's a testament to Walt that these people still love(d) him and continue(d) to sing his praises. He was a visionary, a man ahead of his time (fortunately). I fear that if he were trying to start out today he wouldn't get his ideas off the ground. A dry read, but an interesting one.

A wonderful first-person nostalgia for the glory days when Walt built Disney. A mix of creative, business and personal stories, these interviews tell talkes of the days of the early animated shorts, through Snow White, features, the animators strike, the war, to the creation of Mouseketeers and Disneyland... all told by people who were there, who worked for and with Walt Disney and who are mostly no longer with us.

This book is Part 2 of the author's interviews with those people who had worked with Walt Disney--many of whom have since passed away. How neat it is to read first hand from people who were part of creating such legendary work. Each of the 15 interviewees provides another layer in my understanding of what the real Walt Disney was like.
