Disney & McDonald's

Remember Tuesday's fact? When discussing Walt Disney's airplane, we mentioned that he would often seek out McDonald's restaurants for impromptu meals. His ties to McDonald's go back even further, however- to 1917. At the tailend of World War I, Walt Disney found himself driving Red Cross ambulances in France. One of the other drivers he worked with was none other than Ray Kroc, the visionary businessman who would take the McDonald's concept worldwide. From 1998 until 2008, McDonald's and Disney had a wide ranging deal that would put McDonald's food in Disney Theme Parks.
