Walt Disney Family Quotes

“A man should never neglect his family for business.” – Walt Disney

“My business is making people, especially children, happy.” – Walt Disney

“The important thing is the family. If you can keep the family together- and that’s the backbone of our whole business, catering to families- that’s what we hope to do.” – Walt Disney

“The most important thing brought about in the past quarter century of motion-picture history is the recognition that amusement, recreation, mass diversion, is no longer a dispensable luxury. Family fun is as necessary to modern living as a kitchen refrigerator.” – Walt Disney

“We believed in our idea- a family park where parents and children could have fun together.” – Walt Disney

“People are always analyzing our approach to entertainment. Some reporters have called it the ‘special secret’ of Disney entertainment. Well, we like a little mystery in our films, but there’s really no secret about our approach. We’re interested in doing things that are fun- in bringing pleasure and especially laughter to people. And we have never lost our faith in family entertainment- stories that make people laugh, stories about warm and human things, stories about historic characters and events, and stories about animals.” – Walt Disney

“We think of the family audience. Mickey Mouse would not have been the success he was were it not for the broad appeal. We are not playing just for kids. If you took your kids to the movies and left them there to be picked up later and did not go in yourself, I’d feel unhappy. After all, if you are aiming at the kids, what age would you aim at?” – Walt Disney

“We’re all proud of the honors that many groups around the world have given us. And we’re even more proud that the public- whether in theaters, at Disneyland, or in their homes- continue to express faith in the kind of family entertainment we produce.” – Walt Disney

“We try it in everything we do here, you know… for the family. We don’t actually make films for children. But we make films that children can enjoy along with their parents.” – Walt Disney

“A family picture is one the kids can take their parents to see and not be embarrassed.” – Walt Disney

“I think that by producing family films we reach the audience which has been dormant at the box office for a long time. I don’t like downbeat pictures and I cannot believe that the average family does either. Personally, when I go to the theater I don’t want to come out depressed. That’s why we make the kind of films so many label ‘family type.’ We avoid messages and have opened up new doors and broadened the field for ourselves by producing human stories, with comedy and drama mixed.” – Walt Disney

“Over at our place, we’re sure of just one thing: everybody in the world was once a child. So in planning a new picture, we don’t think of grown-ups, and we don’t think of children, but just of that fine, clean, unspoiled spot down deep in every one of us that maybe the world has made us forget and that maybe our pictures can help recall.” – Walt Disney

“Laughter is timeless. Imagination has no age. And dreams are forever.” – Walt Disney
