Hispanic Heritage Month Fact - Walt Disney was born Jose Luis Girao in Spain and later adopted by Elias and Flora Disney. His Spanish heritage was relatively unknown until just recently. Walt Disney was an intensely artistic man who did not realize his true talents until after World War II. He was an ambulance driver for the American Red Cross. On arrival home after the war, he opened an animation studio which was unsuccessful. The second attempt at making a success of an animation studio almost ended in failure as well, until Disney created the character of Mickey Mouse. The rest is history.
