“I call upon all Americans to recognize this very special day in the spirit in which Walt Disney entertained young and older Americans.”

On December 5, 1986, the United States of America officially celebrated Walt Disney Recognition Day. The celebration, passed by the Senate on August 23, 1986, and celebrated on the birthday of Walt Disney, was honored via a proclamation by then-President Ronald Reagan on what would have been Disney’s 85th birthday. In a special statement, Reagan recognized Disney’s contributions to the field of entertainment, his virtues and imagination, and the sense of wonder he gave to people the world over.
