As part of the major renovation of Disney California Adventure, a new statue was unveiled last week during the ceremonies which included the re-dedication of the park.  This beautiful new statue stands on Buena Vista Street directly across from the Carthay Circle Restaurant. 

The plaque bears the following quote from Walt Disney,

“It was July 1923. I packed all of my worldly goods – a pair of trousers, a checkered coat, a lot of drawing materials and the last of the fairy tale reels we had made – in a kind of frayed cardboard suitcase. And with that wonderful audacity of youth, I went to Hollywood, arriving there with just forty dollars. It was a big day the day I got on that Santa Fe California Limited. I was just free and happy!”
