Roy O Disney
"If you Dream It, We Can Do It"
Dreamers & Doers
Roy O. Disney, Walt's brother is truly the man behind Walt Disney World. Though he planned to retire, after Walt's early death in 1966, Roy stepped in and made sure that "The Florida Project" happened.
Roy was the reason Walt had money - Walt loved to spend, and Roy was very conscientious about spending and savings - the businessman of the two.
What I love about this is the famous quote "If you dream it, you can do it." I recently heard on an episode of WDW Radio with Lou Mongello a fact I had heard before - this quote that has long been attributed to Walt Disney himself was actually written for Horizons, the long lost (and missed) attraction for EPCOT center. Imagineer Tom Fitzgerald wrote that - it was even the song for the attraction!
