The Jungle Book's Indian Jungle
Ken Anderson and background painter Al Dempster were involved in the development these color studies for the film. Ken also did initial sketches for the main character that stuck until the definition of the animated character.
"As you know, Walt Disney opted for a light, airy jungle, since the story included mostly comedic sequences. Dark, mysterious backgrounds would have worked for a more dramatic story treatment." -Andreas Deja

TINKER BELL, AN EVOLUTION
I want to get this book so bad!
Mindy Johnson presents all aspects of Tinker Bell’s career in this book. She has become one of Disney’s most iconic characters. There are many never-before-seen or published Behind the Scenes photos. It talks about Tinker Bell career’s on TV, story books and merchandise. The last chapter is devoted to her CG film career.
It would be the most amazing addition to my Disney Book Collection.
Picture Post, magazine article from March 23, 1946
You see Kimball working on the section called The Whale Who Wanted to Sing at the Met, and to his eft hangs an early model sheet of the Siamese Cats from Lady and the Tramp, a film that wouldn’t be in theaters until almost a decade later. Ollie Johnston is credited as Disney’s top animator, while Milt Kahl, in the last image, doesn’t get mentioned at all.

When does anyone get to go to Disneyland with Walt Disney himself?
This is what I would wish for if I found genie’s lamp. To be able to go back in time and have Walt tour me around Disneyland and embrace all its magnificence.
Today, 65 years ago…
Walt formally introduced the idea of Disneyland as an internal note for the first time. It was called “Mickey Mouse Park" and it should be entered in a train, he said. The project, as we all know, was finished in 1955, first time the "happiest place on earth" opened its doors.
I can’t wait to see this movie.
A letter from every film title from the official disney princess line up - do you know which is which?

For Walt Disney, taking a picture with the Disney characters must have felt a little like a family reunion.
By the time Disneyland park opened in 1955, Walt Disney had released more than a dozen animated features and scores of animated shorts, introducing enduring Disney characters to the world.
