LIFE Walt Disney Book
The ever-optimistic Disney struggled through bankruptcy, a debilitating strike, a catastrophic war, and plenty of box-office bombs before his dreams came true in the mid-50s. The astronomical success of Disneyland put him back in the black and erased decades of debt.

In this reissue from a LIFE classic, we learn about the man behind the mouse, as we follow his career path from the late 1920s through the launch of Disneyworld in 1971.

Along the way, you'll relive some of your own favorite Disney memories!
