57 years ago today, Fairytales became a reality when Disneyland opened.
But did you know that this dream may not have been possible without life insurance?
It’s true: After failing in the pursuit of traditional means of financing to build what would become Disneyland, Walt decided to provide his own financing. In 1953 Walt Disney gathered money from many sources, including borrowing money from the cash value in his life insurance policy in order to fund his first theme park.
This just goes to demonstrate the flexibility and freedom that can be provided through a life insurance policy. The ability to be your own banker when you need it most is priceless.
Thank you Walt Disney for having an amazing dream to design, create and build the most wonderful place in the world where childhood is infinite.
Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world
–Walt E. Disney
