In 1911, the Disney Family moved to Kansas City. In Kansas City, Walt made a friend that showed him his first motion picture. Walt also went to the Art Institute. There was a place call Electric Park near Walt’s home in Kansas City that was a part of Walt’s inspiration for Disneyland. Teenage Years In 1917, Walt’s family moved to Chicago and Walt became the cartoonist for his school newspaper. After high school, Walt lived in France for a while, and then moved back to Kansas City to make cartoons. Mickey MouseWalt Disney opened a studio in Hollywood.

Walt made many more movies, including Bambi, Pinocchio, and Alice and Wonderland. On July 17, 1955, Disneyland opened.
