Walt Disney was a true visionary who, starting with Mickey Mouse, transformed animation into an art form. He later turned his remarkable visionary mind to feature films, environmental motion pictures, television, theme parks. The superb Walt Disney Family Museum showcases everything Walt Disney brought to the world of entertainment. Jim was hired to capture the magic of Walt himself as it is perfectly showcased by the Walt Disney Family Museum. Part of Jim's formidable achievement was to take illuminating and exciting photographs that not only paint a vivid portrait of the museum, but also Walt Disney himself.

As Walt's daughter, Diane, said, “After viewing the rich details of Jim Smith's photos, they not only portray the artistic highlights of our ten interactive galleries, but often capture the fresh ideas and imagination that filled my father's life.”
