Walt Disney’s Signature

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!

logo3 (2)The Disney Company logo is actually a “stylized version” of Walt Disney’s signature.

As can be seen on legal documents, Disney’s own signature was not nearly as exciting or intricate.

That's his real signature on his passport.

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???

Mickey Mouse!

All characters must learn to sign their name the correct way.

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 love collecting character autographs while visiting the parks:
