Good afternoon! This day in Disney History, Feb. 6th 1911. Ronald Reagan, the 40th U.S. President is born in Tampico, Illinois. Reagan is an important part of Disney history because he helped host Disneyland's opening day television broadcast in July, 1955. Also you can find his photo in the WDW Hall of Presidents attraction. :) ✨Also on this day in 1914, Thurl Ravenscroft, the voice behind such Disney characters as Shere Kahn in the "Jungle book", the Knight in "The Sword in the Stone, the Captain in "One Hundred and One Dalmatians" & many more! In DL his voice can be heard singing vocals in It's a Small World, Pirates of the Caribbean & Splash Mountain, while in the Enchanted Tiki Room, he performs the voice of Fritz the German Audio-Animatronics parrot. Thurl is not just heard, but seen in the Haunted Mansion. Guests often mistake his mustachioed face, which is featured on a broken bust in the graveyard scene, for that of Walt Disney. For more about this Disney Legend : ✨In addition, on this day in 1943, "Saludos Amigos", directed by Bill Roberts is generally released in the U.S. A 42 minute film about Latin America. Featuring art work by Mary Blair. Goofy, Donald & Walt himself travel to exciting places and meet Jose Carioca. They capture their adventures along the way. It's made up of 4 animated segments tied together by live action footage of Walt, his artists & animators enjoying their trip. Released by RKO, it will be nominated for 3 Academy Awards. To watch a trailer from the film: As always, thanks for reading!
