Jeffrey Barnes - Walt Disney and Disneyland

 

 

Jeffrey Barnes is a college professor that decided to pursue his dream of creating a college course about the history and genius of Walt Disney and his creation Disneyland.

 

Jeff gave us a bit of history about Walt’s successes and failures, and very interesting facts about the creation of what is now the largest and greatest media empire on earth! It turns out that Walt had a number of miss-fires and a bankruptcy before he finally created what would end up being Walt Disney Enterprises. It is a very inspiring story, and Jeff carried through on his dream to not only create a class on the story, but also write a very inspirational book about Walt Disney – the Dreamer!

 

Thanks for having a dream, Jeff – Great story!
