Disney, Walter E. (1901–1966)
Walt Disney planned and built Disneyland, an amusement park – the first of its kind – that opened in Anaheim, California, in 1955. Among his better-known animated films are: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), Fantasia (1940), Pinocchio (1940), Alice In Wonderland (1951), Peter Pan (1953), and 101 Dalmatians (1961). Mary Poppins (1964) was his benchmark for combined live/animation filming. On television Disney, in the 1950s, created the children's series Zorro and Davy Crockett as well as Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color.
