    I went to Walt Disney from 1964 to 1971 (K-6th) and tho I didn't know it then it's a phenominal school! If I lived in Anaheim I'd make sure my little one went there! I remember in the winter on some Saturdays they'd have movies in the cafeteria. Johnyy Appleseeed Jiminey (sp?) Cricket Snow White etc. Those were the days!

    My daughter started going here last year for Kindergarten. (We transferred her from Anaheim school district to Magnolia & Walt Disney Elem based on the ratings.) And we could not be happier! The Kindergarten staff is phenomenal!! Mrs. Raimundo is the best. She was kind patient yet calmly in control and the kids respected & loved her. If you are thinking about sending your child to Walt Disney Elementary; I would say unequivocally that it was one of the best things I could have done for my child.

    Hi! I was at the Walt Disney Elem. Schl Dedication. I well remember 'Uncle Walt' speaking to all of us present. (after having his artists decorate the school). He told us how much it meant to him to have an elementary school named after him and then he said there would never be another school that could carry his name as he had only gone to school through the sixth grade. Also my first job was at Disneyland. Mr. Disney was a wonderful man.

    I love to have my children attend to Walt Disney School but the staff in the administration were very rude and mean.

    I attended this school from kinder to the 6th grade and I can tell you this it's the BEST school ever!! The students really get a conection with the teachers. I can name them all.(Or at least all the ones I had plus some.) Mrs. Todd Ms. Miller Ms. Lee another Mrs. Todd Mrs. Kelly Mrs. Smith-Brooks Ms. McFarland Mrs. Frats and the list goes on!! These were some of the greatest teachers alive!! And when a student has special needs of any sort they know exactly which teacher to assign them to to ensure those needs are addressed. (I should know) Also it was this school that originally drove me to succeed and keep doing better. Even my mom used to say that we (my sister and I) attended one of the best schools in our district. This place was apart of my childhood and I deeply miss it.

    Excellent school! Mr. Johnson the principal is outstanding! His heart is with the school and students and it shows in his actions. The teachers are awesome! I can not speak enough about Mrs. Arneson Kindergarten teacher! She has the patience of a saint and has a connection with her students. The staff is very responsive to parent and student needs. Thank you Walt Disney Elementary School!

    Great school with great teachers and administrative staff. My child was even given a referral for a free pair of replacement eyeglasses when his were lost. Outdoor education program for 6th graders is fabulous. Kids spend 4 days in the mountains learning about nature biology and the environment all subsidized for the most part by the district. I highly recommend this school!

    We have been at Disney for 3 years now and my kids LOVE their school. I like the responsiveness of the staff and teachers to their needs. I have a child with the double challenge of Emotional Disturbance and Giftedness. This is a difficult combination to handle and they have risen to the challenge. Thank you Disney!!!

    Walt Disney Elementary is an excellent school. This is where my lifelong love of learning began. Without the loving support of all of my old teachers (Mrs. Lacy Mrs. Turner Ms. St. Clair Mrs. O'berle and Mrs. Laird) I would not be where I am. I would never have enrolled in all the honors classes in Junior High and then High School. I would not have gone to U.C. Berkeley to study physics. I would not be going to Columbia for my graduate degree. Thank you for showing me how I can find my own future. Thank you for teaching me about the rewards of hard work.
