Why would I want to be President of the United States? I'm the King of Disneyland.

I have always wanted to leave the village and seek adventure. I long to be remembered for something, even if that something is merely the pursuit of my dreams.

To some people, I am kind of a Merlin who takes lots of crazy chances, but rarely makes mistakes. I've made some bad ones, but fortunately, the successes have come along fast enough to cover up the mistakes. When you go to bat as many times as I do, and continually improve upon your mistakes, you're bound to get a good average.

It ‘s a mistake not to give people a chance to learn to depend on themselves while they are young.

Everybody in the world was once a child. We grow up. Our personalities change. But in every one of us, something remains of our childhood.

A 2003 television version of the story that she produced did not quite fit the bill.

It all started with a mouse.
