Happy 111th Birthday Walt Disney!

On December 5th, 1901, Walter Elias Disney was born in Chicago, Illinois. Elias Disney and Flora Call Disney named their fourth son after Reverend Walter Parr, the family's pastor and close friend. Growing up in both Illinois and Missourri, young Walt developed a talent for drawing and storytelling. Though his first foray into cartoons failed (the Laugh-O-Gram Studios in Kansas City) Walt famously found success as an animator and filmmaker in Hollywood, California.

Prep & Landing, is a Christmas-themed cartoon short from the Walt Disney Animation Studios. Prep & Landing features Wayne & Lanny, a pair of highly trained elves who ensure Santa's safety by securing houses and preparing icy rooftops for landings. Animators from Prep & Landing pay homage to Walt Disney and his December birthday with a neat hidden detail broadcast every holiday season.

The license plate reads 12501WED - paying homage to Walter Elias Disney, who was born December 05, 1901.As Lanny & Wayne finish prepping a home for Santa's arrival, they bump into late model station wagon. Half covered with snow, the nondescipt car features a very special license plate number. Marked 12501WED, the tag is a subtle nod to December 05, 1901 and Walter Elias Disney.
