For those who are not familiar with it, the individuals who have made a huge impact on Disney, be it in animation, theme parks, movies, etc. are sometimes known as Disney Legends. This is one of the highest honors that can be obtained within The Walt Disney Company, and the legends are selected by a special selection committee.
