You might think that you know Walt Disney’s signature – after all it’s at the beginning of every Disney movie – but you’re wrong!
As can be seen on legal documents, Disney’s own signature was not nearly as exciting or intricate.
The ‘Walt Disney’ signature used by the company was actually designed by an animator and is not his real signature. They say that Disney didn’t like the way his real signature looked. In fact, rumor had it that Walt couldn’t even reproduce the famed Disney signature!
But, you know who can reproduce his style of writing???
Yes, that’s right. All Mickey Mouse characters at every Disney Park must sign their name using the same the Disney signature font. Same swirl over the i, same swirl underneath the name.
How cool is that??!!!
We collect character autographs while visiting the parks:

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
