Makes one wonder... What if the overloaded riverboat tipped over on that maiden voyage ? How would that first day of Disneyland have been remembered ? Would that have been a black mark that could have doomed Disneyland to early failure ?
I think to say he set a dangerous precedent isn't fair...if Disney hadn't taken such a leap...with warts and all...we wouldn't be having this discussion at all. He invented the high-end theme-park. Thank you, Walt!
