This was probably the most precious thing ever.
After I got my picture taken with Gaston, this adorable little girl ran up to him and started hugging his legs. Gaston got down closer to her and hugged her tightly. She told him “I love you so much!” and she continued to hug him. This was the only time he broke character and whispered to the little girl that he loved her more. She skipped away happily to the restrooms. When she came out, she ran back and hugged him again before going to her next destination at Disney World.
If I were this little doll’s parents, I would be worried about her taste in men. GASTON?? Hahaha!
Omg how precious!
that’s my girl
My heart goes out to the Disney family tonight. Diane Miller, Walt’s daughter passed away today. Diane has done so many great things for the company, including her design work on the Walt Disney Concert Hall, and her 2009 opening of The Walt Disney Family Museum. She’s finally able to be with her parents and sister again, and I know she is in a better place. Thank you for your magic, Diane, you will always be remembered. RIP
I AM GOING TO CRY THROUGHOUT THIS WHOLE MOVIE I JUST KNOW IT
Saddened to hear of Diane Disney Miller’s death. Her work to preserve Walt’s history and legacy will always be cherished and remembered.
Seeing Diane Disney Miller take such an active role in founding the Walt Disney Family Museum was fantastic. I hope that that spirit is lives on and inspires others to take up the torch.
Your blog has now officially been signed by the amazing Walt Disney.

My blog is now worthy of it’s existence.
"I am going to be devastated when Diane Disney Miller dies, then all of Walt’s immediate family will be gone."

I’m crying I can’t even believe this.
Rest in Peace: Diane Disney Miller (December 18, 1933-November 19, 2013)
Disney Chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger reflects on the legacy of Walt’s eldest daughter:
We are deeply saddened by the passing of Diane Disney Miller. She is remembered by Disney fans around the world as the beloved daughter of Walt Disney, and one who graciously shared her family history and personal memories of her father.
Diane was a fierce guardian of her father’s legacy who never hesitated to set the record straight, opening The Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco to bring her father’s fascinating story to life. In our many conversations over the years, Diane’s unique and special perspective about her father only deepened my considerable appreciation for him. Diane was incredibly generous in that regard, freely sharing her personal insights and providing details that deepened our knowledge, and we remain grateful for her many valuable contributions to our efforts to preserve Disney history. She and her sister, Sharon, have long been recognized as Walt’s inspiration for Disneyland, a place he created for families to have fun together. For that reason and many others, Diane will always have a special place in our company’s legacy and in the hearts of fans.
She was also known for her philanthropic efforts, including playing an integral role in the development of the renowned Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles to ensure the creation of a unique venue bearing her father’s name that she believed would be “a wonderful thing for the city, for the spirit, for the soul.”
Diane was the wife of former Disney CEO Ron Miller, as well as mother to their seven children, Christopher, Joanna, Tamara, Jennifer, Walter, Ronald and Patrick. She also had 13 grandchildren and had the great joy of recently welcoming her first great-grandchild into the world. We send our sincere condolences to the entire family and our thoughts remain with them during this difficult time. (x)
