    1941: Walt Disney sends an inter-office communication stating that "Under present conditions, the laying out of cash for equipment is out of line. Our situation is plenty tough and after returning from a session with the bankers we have to stretch things out as far as we can and we still have to cut further." Disney is being forced to focus on cutbacks.

    1953: Walt Disney is given the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes held at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, California.

    2002: An unclaimed Mickey Mouse snow globe clears out a section of the Sacramento International Airport after being mistaken for a bomb. The unlabeled cardboard box causes 150 people to be evacuated from the B-1 terminal and 5 outbound flights to be delayed.

    1930: Disney animator & techincal genius Ub Iwerks, the first animator of Mickey Mouse, officially leaves Disney to set up his own animation studio. (His character Flip the Frog will eventually fail and he will later return to Disney.)

    1940: A rare instance of Walt Disney's praise occurs at a "Bambi" screening of two minutes of test animation by Frank Thomas and Milt Kahl. After seeing the footage, Disney turns to the two animators with tears in his eyes and says "Thanks, fellows. That's great stuff, no kidding. Those personalities are pure gold." Walt seldom gives a direct compliment.(When "Bambi" is completed it will have the fewest lines of dialogue of
    any Disney animated feature.)

    1999: At Disney-MGM, a third drop is added to the drop sequence for the Tower of Terror attraction. Also, Doug Live (a stage show) opens replacing Superstar TV.

    Kali River Rapids (a whitewater rafting adventure) and Maharajah Jungle Trek both open in the Asia section of Animal Kingdom.

    2003: Epcot features the final performances of Tapestry of Dreams, coinciding with the end of the 100 Years of Magic celebration.
