My dad once worked for a company that helped build Disneyland. I don’t think he ever met Walt Disney personally, but I got to watch Disneyland be born. My dad helped supervise the building of the moving sidewalk that led to the original Monorail. Disneyland was a short drive from our home as I was growing up and I probably got to go more than most children — especially since my dad got discounts.
I never knew that Walt Disney suffered from depression. But millions have enjoyed the way he got himself out of it.
