Do you believe in fairies? It sure seemed like Walt Disney did. How often do you see a fairy appear in his films? Many have leading roles! Could it be a mere coincidence that he was also one of the members of the Fairy Investigation Society, founded in 1927?
We might not really know for sure how much Walt believed in the unseen magical world but there is no doubt that he did have that special gift of noticing things easily over looked, and turning them into something special, something magical.
There are so many unexplained things in this world, why not fairies?
In 1947, Walt went to Ireland to learn all he could to help with his upcoming movie, Darby O’Gill and the Little People, and I wonder just what he saw! There is no denying that fairies play a huge role in Disney movies, tv shows and theme parks.
