He is more accurately thought of as an entertainer, not in the sense that he wanted to be the center of attention, but that he wanted to create something that would excite an audience and make them laugh.
Walt had talent, and developed a keen commercial sense of what would appeal to the public. How did this dream come about? As a child in Kansas City, Walt watched through the fence at Fairmont Park, wanting to participate, but not having enough money to enter.
But he was not amused, convinced he could do much better. He visited county fairs, state fairs, circuses, carnivals, and parks.
He was distressed at operations where things were run down and ride operators were hostile. And he loved the spotless Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, with bright, upbeat music, excellent food and drink, and warm, friendly employees. In he shared his concept with trusted friends, a modest amusement park with a central village including a town hall, a small park, railroad station movie theater, and small stores.
Outlying areas would include a carnival area and a western village. Soon he added spaceship and submarine rides, a steamboat, and exhibit halls.

Walt combined his talent and his sense of what the public would want with lots of hard work. As he told an interviewer in It takes a dream… faith in it… and hard work. With Disneyland and its continuing stream of visitors, Walt had finally achieved financial stability.
