11:30 - 12:30 60 Years of Zorro (Walt Disney Archives Stage — Stagepass Available)

The story of Zorro was a special one for Walt Disney, but it wasn’t just because the legend of the masked avenger was so compelling. Walt viewed a “Zorro” television series as a source of funding for his long contemplated theme park. When Roy Disney refused to spend the company’s money on it, Walt bought the rights to “Zorro” with his own money and started work on a weekly series. The project went on the back burner when ABC television bought the weekly anthology series and the “Mickey Mouse Club,” but Walt turned back to “Zorro” to help finance his massive 1959 expansion of Disneyland. This presentation looks back at the sometimes rocky road to the screen, the many actors considered for the series, and some of the very special Disney touches that made it such a success.
