Walt Disney-Where would we be without Walt Disney? I know there would be a huge void in my life—no International Food & Wine Festival at EPCOT, no Hollywood Brown Derby at Hollywood Studios, no California Grill at the Contemporary Resort, and so on. As a prominent figure within the American animation industry and throughout the world, he is regarded as a cultural icon, known for his influence and contributions to entertainment during the 20th century. As a Hollywood business mogul, he and his brother Roy O. Disney co-founded The Walt Disney Company. According to therichest.com Disney had a net worth of $5billion; and The Disney Company continues to bring in approximately $35 Billion a year in revenue. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walt_Disney Walt Disney has brought countless people joy and happiness though his works, Disneyland, and his vision for Walt Disney World.
