A Look Back At Disney’s Important Dates from May

The Disney Insider has started putting out a blog at the beginning of a new month with a look back at some of the most memorable events that took place in the previous month.  I think it’s great that Disney shares with us all the accomplishments they are so proud of.  There are a lot of big days throughout the lifetime of The Walt Disney Company, but some stand out above the others. From an invention that would change the way animated films are created to the opening of an iconic attraction, see what big moments in Disney history got selected for an original artistic tribute last month:
