Tomorrow marks the 106th anniversary of the birth of one of the 20th century’s most celebrated animators and entrepreneurs - Walt Disney. From the release of the full-length animated film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” in 1938 to the recent movie “Enchanted” Disney’s imaginative creations still capture our imagination more than 40 years after his death.
