Walt Disney World Pop Culture

Walt Disney World is remarkable because it is here that some of our favorite childhood characters come to life. Disney has created some of the most memorable children's films of all time. Classics like "Cinderella" and "Snow White" have weathered the test of age, and still delight children around the world. Newer movies like "Beauty and the Beast" and "Aladdin" have become just as popular, earning Disney untold millions. Pixar movies "Toy Story" and "Cars" have become a part of our culture, and it's hard to pass a toy aisle without seeing a character from one of these films. Yet it was a small mouse and a classic feature called "Steamboat Willie" that started this entertainment empire. No matter what your age, there is something indefinably magical about Mickey Mouse.
