Happy Birthday, Walt Disney! It is no question that the celebrated animator, creator of Mickey Mouse, and proponent of all things magical has had an impact on our childhoods. If Mr. Disney were still alive, he would have turned 111 on Wednesday, Dec. 5. He was born in 1901 in Chicago and passed away in Burbank in 1966, at the age of 65, due to lung cancer.
