It's Walt Disney's Birthday !

On December 5, 1901 Walt Disney was born at 2156 N. Tripp Avenue in Chicago. If Walt was still alive he would be 111 years old today! In tribute to Walt's birthday here is a selection of pictures and the first one below shows Walt at the Animation Studios.

The two next pictures shows Walt at WED Enterprises - now Walt Disney Imagineering - with Rolly Crump and a model for the 1964 World's Fair...

...and with Imagineer and animator Marc Davis and Sculptor Blaine Gibson discussing about Pirates of Caribbean audio-animatronics.

On the picture below Walt is surrounded by the famous Mouseketeers!

One of the most famous (and beautiful) picture of Walt at Disneyland, here inside the Disneyland Railroad locomotive...

...and one, less known picture, with Walt inside a car of Autopia with his daughter Diane Disney Miller and his grand son Christopher Miller, circa 1957.

A last picture shot for LIFE Magazine showing Walt and all the famous Disney characters.
