Good morning! This day in Disney history, Nov 17th, 1956. "The first of eight installments titled "My Dad, Walt Disney," by Diane Disney Miller as told to Pete Martin (a "celebrity friendly" writer) appears in the Saturday Evening Post (Vol. 229 Issue 20). The Saturday Evening Post had first approached Walt w/the proposal to have him write (w/the assistance of Martin) his biography in serial form back in 1950. They offered Walt $150,000. At the time, Walt was deeply involved in building Disneyland but wanted to help his daughter Diane & her husband Ron get a house. Walt had no money to give them because everything was tied up in his new theme park. So Walt made a counter-proposal that he would be interviewed but that Diane would be credited as the author so that she would receive the money." How sweet is THAT? To read it & see more photos, http://is.gd/Tjt71J 💫 Also on this day in 1989 - " The Little Mermaid" is generally released in theaters. Loosely based upon the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, it marks the first use of CAPS (Computer Animation Production System) in a Disney feature. What's your favorite part of this movie?
