Disney History: Walt Discusses The Carousel of Progress Walt Disney Carousel of Progress

Every now and again, I get a little nostalgic and like to take a look back at the OG Disney when Walt himself would talk about all of his ideas and creations. Something about his voice takes me to a simpler time and instantly makes me smile. Walt Disney’s storytelling ability was evident from the very beginning; the way his eyes would light up when talking through a new idea or project is inspiring. Take a look at the clip below where Walt Disney talks through the creation of the Carousel of Progress.
