AWEsome Walt Disney

CG Jung had a lifelong fascination with experiences that are awe inspiring. For Jung, always in search of the transcendence of the human psyche, such experiences formed the most important aspect of his work.
It was genius of Richard Benefield to say that:"From Steamboat Willie to Pinocchio to EPCOT, Walt Disney's unyielding ambition was to ignite a sense of wonder and to enrapture audiences through great storytelling,"
Mr. Benefield said it all!
In case one didn't put two plus two: "Wonder" is defined in Webster as a feeling of awed astonishment aroused by something extraordinary.
Can one imagine Disney's greatness of soul in his "unyielding ambition to ignite a sense of wonder" in his audience?
