What if Walt never dreamed of Disneyland? What would the world be like? What would your life be like? Post your thoughts below. Follow our VOYAGEERS page on Facebook for the release of The Great Storyteller--Book Two of the VOYAGEERS Saga--coming April 10!

Think about all of the people who've been inspired to do great things based on Walt's dreams and visions. I think Walt was more than a movie maker and an amusement park builder--he was a visionary who inspired people to do great things that have shaped our history and culture. Would those people have been inspired regardless? I think our world as we know it would be very different without Walt's willingness to move forward against all odds.  - Admin 2:03PM
How do I like this x1million?πŸ‘ - pikarich  5232.5 #23 2:55PM

Intriguing!!!! (And there would be no TinkerSchelle...my fun alter-ego. No Bueno for me! As I stamp my foot!βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨πŸ˜‰) - TinkerSchelle  1981.1 #82 4:33PM
No pika being hunted, or dressing up as β›„, or laying on the middle of main street, no bromances, or making disney magic for others and no wait time info, disney app is horible at being accurate, inside thepark ok - pikarich  5232.5 #23 5:42PM
I absolutely love this you hit it right on the spot! - nelcamp90  32.3 #5773 8:24AM
Whether you want to SeaWorld class shows or the Raging Waters of amazing attractions...we all know the best place to go.  Listen, I won't beat around the Busch, and I'm Knott saying that other parks are equal.  I know that it's a Universal feeling that in this Great America that we live in that Disneyland is #1 and we can't live without it!!!  - DisneyDavidEMT  2631.5 #49 9:11PM

Zombie Apocalypse!  I would be trying to find Daryl or Glenn and Maggie, and keep them from Terminus! ;0) - zenderella  408.9 #549 8:07PM
Yeah! A fellow WD fan! Cant wait for the season fine tomorrow. - antetr95  1894.4 #89 9:09PM

I know!  We are excited, too! - zenderella  408.9 #549 11:55PM
Zendurella I'm worried on what's gonna happen.  I have an idea (due to reading the comics) so I'm worried for what's going to happen to one of the characters.  :/ - Flynnigan  215.2 #1797 4:19AM
Oh no, Flynnigan!  Don't worry, cause the show is so different than the comics!  Do you watch Talking Dead, too? - zenderella  408.9 #549 8:53AM
watch talking dead too  :)  trying to get audience tickets but no luck - Flynnigan  215.2 #1797 11:14AM
I think time is out to get audience tickets for tonight, Flynnigan :0(  - the people in the audience get to watch tonight's show a few hours before they film Talking Dead live, so maybe better luck next season!?!  - zenderella  408.9 #549 1:04PM
No spoilers guys.  Not going to be able to see it until Tuesday because I'm out of town. - potatohead25  715.6 #271 4:11PM
Gabster1, you don't have to worry about me!  I'm like a vault, info goes in and stays there! I don't even tell my cat! :0) - zenderella  408.9 #549 6:48PM
I think Walt said it best when telling about his father Elias' disciplinary methods in Saving Mr. Banks. He gave his life the happy ending he yearned for as a young boy in Missouri, and, in turn, he gave all of our lives the happy endings we too yearn for. As a survivor of abuse, Walt's Disneyland has reprieved me of my own "life sentence" in a way that no other place on earth has. At Disneyland I truly find my happily ever after. I wouldn't want to think of a world without his optimism, creativity, innocence, altruism, and genius. What a sad, empty place that would be.  - princessesCheyCaitToriAvaownmyheart  42.3 #0 10:19AM
Wow! Very well stated. Your post touched my heart. Thank you! - grumpypapa  5478.6 #20 1:04PM
Beautiful words!! - TinkerBritt84  24.8 #6566 1:10PM
Not nearly as magical, for sure. A lot of my childhood memories are wrapped up in Disneyland and the Disney magic. Vacations spent with relatives, wonderful times shared. We still would have spent time together, but not with as much fun, for sure. I'm just glad I don't have to live in a world without Disneyland and the magic that Walt created for us all.  - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 1:02PM
Agree completely. I also think something about the place Walt created helps those things happen more easily. Maybe it's that you get to escape the outside world better.  - redsoxcarlos  2523.9 #55 1:59PM
That's why I enjoy staying at the resort so much. The outside world just disappears! - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 3:45PM
I probably wouldn't be broke... Seriously. My vacations would be of other places. I'm just plain addicted. I need help. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  1143.5 #156 2:23PM

I think everyone would be going to TinkerSchelleLand cuz there is no way life could exist without SOMEONE imagining Disneyland (so I would have had to!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - TinkerSchelle  1981.1 #82 4:30PM

Was she not in the pan book at all????? True for sure not the way I picture her.... I guess it would have to be something else....but the world would still need a "happiest place on earth"!!! Just thank heavens it worked out the way it did!!!!πŸ˜‰βœ¨βœ¨ - TinkerSchelle  1981.1 #82 11:51PM
Well I know the happiest place on earth wouldn't be Phillips house! - SnoopMousyMouse  47.5 #0 9:12PM

I think my life would be the same as it's been. I would have found something else to be a fan of. Some other films to be a collector of.  I believe society as a whole is adaptive so if there was no Disneyland there would have been something. - Donaldfan_532  247.3 #1391 12:12PM
Other than saving a few 1000 πŸ’±πŸ’²this question make me too sad to think about, no mw, no dl, no admin or lifetime quality friends 😭😭😭 - pikarich  5232.5 #23 12:37PM

I'd be lost without my Disneyland. It's been such a big part if not the biggest part of my life. I grew up at Disneyland. No Space Mountain, I think I'd die!!! - Superspacemountainfan  92.1 #3711 1:05PM
First, I couldn't miss something that doesn't exist. The Disney Company would surely not be the empire it is today. The theme parks perpetuate the merchandising, movies, souvenirs, and created an enormous fan base. Everyone would visit other theme parks or attractions. Life would go on. Michael E. would have found another company to nearly ruin. Most importantly, there would be no need for Mousewait!!! Unthinkable!!!!  I sure am glad Walt did dream of Disneyland!!!  πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ - grumpypapa  5478.6 #20 1:14PM
No Disneyland trips since I was a kid, no Mouseketeers, no Wonderful World of Disney TV show, no honeymoon at DL in 1985! .... I don't know what could have possibly taken its place! Don't like thinking about it... - debbiev  1170.7 #151 1:19PM
This post wouldn't exist  - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1901.2 #88 1:40PM
You're right! - Admin  2:04PM
The sparkle would be missing.. - pj-cici-pie  35.2 #5519 2:22PM
What would I do if there was no air to breathe? What would I do if there was no sun to shine?  What would I do if there were no Disneyland?  All of these are impossible questions to answer.  One thing I know is that I never would have met or come to know so many amazing people because MW wouldn't exist either. - DisneyDavidEMT  2631.5 #49 3:40PM
I guess that's where Admin was going with this.....we would never have met all the wonderful people we've met on MW if there was no DL! - debbiev  1170.7 #151 3:54PM
I never would have met disney David😭😭😭 - pikarich  5232.5 #23 3:55PM
Too true!  And that would be a shame!  I like you all!  πŸ˜˜ - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 4:48PM
Only place to vacation would be Universal Studios.  - Lelundrial  656.4 #305 3:58PM
I wouldn't have a hero in Walt Disney and I'd have an empty gap in my life, as there is no other place comparable to Disneyland nor the whole assortment of Disney characters who have had such an impact on my life. πŸŒΊπŸ’œ - apesandmonkeys  6523.5 #16 4:02PM
Also to add: no MouseWait family couldn't even be imagined at this point 😱 - apesandmonkeys  6523.5 #16 4:03PM
I wouldn't know any of you lovely MWers.  😒 - potatohead25  715.6 #271 4:33PM
I wouldn't be in a hotel room getting ready to go Disneyland  - E-Ticket  1466.9 #115 6:14PM
KnottsWait? - Grindcore  556.2 #365 9:04PM
I'd be a lot richer. Lol - TrueFromOzLovesDisney  531.4 #391 9:19PM
I would be devistated and lead a boring life but thanks to Walt in living my dream  - CM_Oregon_DucksFan  2613.7 #51 9:32PM
I don't even want to think about it and just enjoy what Walts created and his imaginers along with all his wonderful CMs - WaltDisneyFan  62.5 #4360 9:39PM
Knottswait? - mattc  265.0 #1209 9:55PM
My life would be void of a lot of happiness and magic. I'm afraid to know what would have filled the huge space that Disney has filled in my life. There would be a lot less joy in the world... It would be a Large World After All! - TrampsLady  1641.8 #102 4:18AM
I agree… My business is with vision and creativity as I design theme designs for families and it was definitely inspired by Walt... Because of my dad's job as a kid I literally grew up spending many days at Disneyland and was fortunate enough to been able to Matt Walt, I'll never forget that. - DavidDisney  37.1 #5388 7:51AM
Disneyland is how I show my nieces that magic is something real, that a person can take ordinary everyday materials like wood, concrete, metal, fabric, and with some imagination, create something truly magical.  - honork  5.2 #18023 9:47AM
Universal would be the best theme park out there.  - ScottOnWheels  268.4 #1182 2:30PM

Then again, they might Knott. - misschurro  6362.4 #17 11:04AM

I don't even want to think about it  - TickledTink  370.8 #22 4:18PM
Don't you mean 'tink' about it?  πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚ - DisneyDavidEMT  2631.5 #49 9:12PM
It's a very scary thought to think what the world would be like without Walt Disney??? My love of cars would be greatly affected ie. The Absent Minded Professor, Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo, The Tale of Toad Hall, the Gnome Mobile. My love of animation The Jungle Book, Bed Knobs & Broom Sticks, Mary Poppins, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White & the Seven Dwarves... Not to mention how much I exercised my imagination every time I saw Peter Pan or 101 Dalmations or Darby O'Gill and the Little People or the inspirational music to any Disney Movie or any Disneyland Ride that sparked the feel good emotions of my younger years! Thank you God for Walt Disney and for MW Admin for using Imagination and ImaginEaring😘;-) to give us the child like experience and wonderment!!!! - WaltSentMe  330.2 #748 3:10AM
If Walt didn't come up with Disneyland, he probably would be writing greeting cards. - Yen-Sidious  37.7 #5349 6:06PM
