Walt Disney Graduation Quotes

Below you’ll find are 8 good Walt Disney quotes for graduation!

Some are authentic, originating from the man himself. And some have murkier origins. However, all these quotes have been popularly attributed to Walt Disney and the Disney Parks over the years. In the end, I think it’s the meaning of the words that hold the importance.

“There’s a great, big beautiful tomorrow.”

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”

“It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”

“The difference between winning and losing is most often not quitting.”

“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious…and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

“Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional.”

“The important thing is the family.”

“If you can dream it, you can do it.”

FUN FACT: The last quote actually comes from the lyrics to a song at a now extinct Epcot attraction called Horizons. (Those of you who visited Disney World before 1999 might remember it.) The song was written by Tom Fitzgerald, but I included it because it’s so so often misattributed to Walt Disney.
