Disney Overcoming of Reality

With animation, Walt Disney turned movement, which is the most primary and immediate reality, (lets say, it's the "seed" of all reality) into fantasy; Into the very overcoming and liberation of reality itself. While movement, in reality, is pragmatic, (always in function of a determinate goal), in animation it is valid in itself; while in reality it is always means to an end, in animation, like in dance, it is meaning, or story's expression.

Disney Advice

"The more you are like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique." - Walt Disney 
It's kind of cute the way he defines authenticity, as "being like oneself", rather than the more usual "being oneself". It makes it as something to be attainable and something that admits of degrees "the more you... the less you...", but as something to be attained. He knew it, because he did it!
