Welcome back to part two of our tour of the Walt Disney Family Museum. If you started here, be sure to read part one first, as this post will pick up later in Walt’s life, and it is chronologically based.
On the tour, we left off in the late 1930s area of Walt’s life. There was a poster that said it all, “We were in a new business.”
In 1939, The last Silly Symphony, The Ugly Duckling was released. In 1940, two major hits were released, Pinocchio & Fantasia.
The early 40s shows some serious issues that faced Walt. He experienced hardships along the way, but this period of time served to be another rough patch. He deemed this “the toughest part of my life”. There were two crises during this period, one being a 3 month artists’ strike and another being World War II. Red the panel below as it will flesh out the further details.
