That's What Walt Said

I put together a few of these images recently to post to Twitter and decided to do a whole collection.

I think some of my relatives and neighbors think my wife and I talk like this at home. We did meet each other at Walt Disney World but we also have brains. And so did Walt Disney. Walt didn’t go around speaking in fluffy buzz words. He was a respectable, realistic, intelligent, and rather blunt man. To “future Imagineers” I often suggest keeping the fluffy stuff to a minimum. Keep your resumes and behaviors professional, perhaps a little fun, but always mature enough that the company wouldn’t be embarrassed to hire you.

If you seek a career at Walt Disney Imagineering, read the words of legendary Bob Gurr. And good luck!

Disney + 90s Star Power!!

In case you forgot about the synergetic power of Disney teaming up with 1990s actors, singers, or athletes to appear on medium-sized magazine covers, we bring you these. Oh Bob Saget and Baby Herman... the messes you get yourselves into.

Sebastian terrified of Steve Urkel. Inside we can learn about "Other Cool Nerds."

Hulk Hogan with a dinosaur in a headlock. Oddly this was before Jurassic Park came out.

Macaulay Culkin afraid of his new school teacher, Ursula.

Two years later Macaulay rides a motorcyle with bus driver Mickey.

Neil Patrick Harris (big Disney fan) "gets spooked".

Luke Perry's school schedule includes "skateboarding" and "star fashion". Roger Rabbit carries his many books.

Paula Abdul + circuses?

Will Smith.

The Fresh Prince and the Evil Queen. Get it?

Melissa Joan Hart riding a flying carpet with a creepy Aladdin. And Timone. And Meeko? And King Louie?? What the?

Joey Lawrence wearing Aladdin-like clothing.

MC Hammer and Darkwing Duck.

Joe Montana rock climbing with Goofy. Of course.

Blossom and the Beast.

Arnold Schwarzenegger wearing a really nice belt.

Fred Savage with Santa Clause and the Rescue Rangers.

Rick Moranis. Always shrinking things or blowing things up in the 90s. In the 80s he was hillariously and unknowingly saving the world from poisonous beer.
