There were no jewelry hidden.
Walt wanted this atmosphere: They were supposed to live here,
they've been outside somewhere, but they could come
back at any minute and catch us.
- John Hench

Walt's idea was that - as soon as the people who were
dining got through their main course.

when they got into the dessert.

Even in China.
Children there, next to the Great Wall,

Walt had a marvelous intuition.
And because he understood people very well,
liked them and had great respect for people,
there was nothing cynical about Walt.
- John Hench

Mickey is one of the prime examples:
Mickey has never been suspected of being an American export.
It was deja vu.
They gave him a local name and he's been accepted everywhere he goes.
- John Hench

It was supposed to be in the second street project for Main Street.
But who knows? Maybe it will be built one of these days.
We never throw away any idea.

with the colors.
The colors in the park are harmonious with each other,
not like in big cities where they don't.
- John Hench

The park achieved a kind of reality.
Like these virtual reality games the children are playing with.
I told them we were doing this 40 years ago!
Disneyland is virtual reality.

by the way.
Jeff Burke is doing it for the Magic Kingdom.

so it was very familiar.
- John Hench

When you go to the park, there is no horizon -
just Disneyland.

The idea of a little village was there from the beginning
and now we have this "Celebration" village.
Same thing for the Disney Institute.
Walt talked about this idea in the very first.
- John Hench

This music that was supposed to only come from tapes like in any restaurant.
Something would happened.
One bird will start to do a little jazz thing,
and another bird will start to answer.
- John Hench

Then, you were supposed to discover the city,
where they were.
But because somebody like skeletons.
And that they discovered that they were at a cheap price,
we used too many skeletons all over the place,
and the public got the wrong message.
- John Hench

We don't have too much ritual in our life anymore.
And these life symbols which people rely on to keep
their feeling of well being,
that life is not too bad after all are required more and more.
- John Hench

But Walt and him shared the same kind of optimism.
Walt believed in himself, and he was optimistic about what he wanted to do.
He just knew it will be okay, and Dali was the same way.
They had a great deal in common that way.
- John Hench

Well, it was never supposed to be like that.
Walt died before we had finished.
The original idea of Walt's was that you came down there,
into the caves, and there were no pirates.
But they had been there just seconds before!
There was a hot meal on the table, steaming.
- John Hench

I suppose that every time there is difficulty.
I remember about Space Mountain: It took us ten years
before we found the technology that would allow such a ride.
And during these ten years, I had a model that I kept,
waiting for the technology we needed.
- John Hench

We finally found out the technique of separating and
getting information about where every train would be at any moment.

because - as you go along - some things improved,
and you get better ideas.

Big cities are chaotic.
And chaos for humans - who have experience from their ancestors -
is the last step before conflict.
So, in the park, every kind of visual contradiction has been eliminated.
- John Hench

Walt understood all of those things,
and even common things about people.
For instance: Usually you get your idea of what kind
of day it is by looking at the horizon,
because the horizon is your eye level.
So what Walt did is to eliminate the horizon.
- John Hench

The colors I choose there was to paint the first hotel,
the Disneyland Hotel.
Because of the cloudy sky we had in Paris,
it had to be a particular kind of color who will fight those grey days.
And also something you can see when you're driving up 'There it is!
We're arriving!'

I always admired Walt's optimism.
He seemed to know the direction he was going to.
When I was at the studio, I remember he kept driving
all of us back down to a more fundamental level all the time.
- John Hench

I thought that it would be easier to learn that if
I worked in motion pictures.
So I went to work with one motion picture producer
who was developing a color system.
This didn't do to me much good.
All I did was pick filters for the camera.
- John Hench

In live action movies, you just hope that everything works.
Because the actor may had a bad morning and doesn't play good,
or accidents happen continuously.
Many things contradict what you are trying to say.
But in cartoons, nothing contradict what you want to say.
- John Hench

Color is a very critical thing.
I've found that architects don't like colors.
Engineers too.
And so somebody has to stand in.
Because this is the finish of it.
It is the emotional part of a structure.
I had great satisfaction in doing that.
- John Hench

I suppose that I was a kind of consultant for taste.
Is it good taste? Or bad taste? I had an attention to detail,
to what would tell best the story.
Because many people get excited about the work and
drift off from the story.
- John Hench

I have wanted to be a fine artist painter,
and I reached the point in art schools were I'd like
to understand more about images and how images communicate information to people.
And I was not getting very far in that from my professors.
- John Hench

Of course, it gave the studio an enormous power,
because I don't know any other place who had that skill
with images to communicate with.
And the need of these kinds of images are even greater
now than they ever were because we are losing our life symbols.
- John Hench

I don't think that was too successful.
Because I always thought that the two of them should have been more separate.
Also I had planned the monorail station to be in the center.
So that one day you would have go to World Showcase
and then the other day to Future World.
- John Hench

and who you are now becoming
is where the dance of Life really takes place.
- Barbara De Angelis

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson

whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities.

- John F. Kennedy

When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced.
Live your life so that when you die,
the world cries and you rejoice.

which were for the moment unpopular.
- Edward R. Murrow

It is only when we truly know and understand
that we have a limited time on earth
and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up

as if it were the only one we had.
- Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

but our hate is turning our own days
and nights into a hellish turmoil.

as good and as bad as ever.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
