“I hope we never lose sight of one thing, that it was all started by a mouse.”
Walt Disney’s Hometown- Marceline Missouri (by izabelleinwonderland)
Ok I lied ONE MORE AT MARCELINE.
Mickey and I on Main Street!
Last pictures of Marceline!
These are in the Uptown Theater B&B. Such a cute place! And the owner, Debbie, is a gem. It was magical to be able to wake up to the sound of the train that inspired Walt Disney and then stick my head out the window to look down the original Main Street USA!
This is the theater below the hotel! It is called the “Uptown Theater.” Walt and Roy Disney came back when the Disney company really started becoming famous, and premiered the movie “The Great Locomotive Chase” in this theater! I got to stand on the stage and stand EXACTLY where Walt stood! Sooo magical (:
It’s an adorable theater!
Finally posting pictures from my birthday trip to Marceline, Missouri! Marceline is Walt’s hometown (one of them) and there’s a quote from him that says, ”To tell the truth, more things of importance happened to me in Marceline than have happened since—or are likely to in the future.”
It’s just the cutest little town with SO much history. As the people there say, “we’re about the man, not just the mouse.” And everyone there is just so nice. This is a picture of the original Main Street! The one that Walt modeled Main Street, USA after in the parks!
*At Disneyland, the ticket taker in the booth (she’s a doll, literally) has a name tag on that says she’s from Marceline, MO!*
It’s such a magical place. If you are a Disney enthusiast and haven’t been, I would highly recommend it!
UHHHH so today I found out Walt Disney didn’t actually say “If you can dream it, you can do it.”

So APPARENTLY a man named Tom Fitzgerald said it, and it was written for the “Horizons” attraction at EPCOT.
Oh well, still a great phrase!

Everyone should watch this. Or at least listen to what he says about Walt at the beginning. So beautiful, and SO true.
