Diane and Sharon Disney weren't Walt Disney's only children. He had one more, but he was given up for adoption. He was born on 1938, the result of a night of passion, to celebrate the success of Snow White, which became the most successful motion picture of 1938. By May 1939, its total gross of $6.5 million made it the most successful sound film made to that date. With his growing success, however, the attention for another child just couldn't be spared. Thus, he was given up, though his parents were able to sign his birth certificate and give him a name. At the time, it was impossible for what would likely be considered the scandal of the year to get leaked, at least if they were careful. And careful they were.
Their son - named Humbert, after the Huntsman - was adopted at the age of seven, though he opted to keep his birth name, as was his right. Word never did get out of his existence, as he lived in a small, off-the-map town down in Idaho. He grew into a fine man, with his own wife and eventually his own children. He never became famous, never risked being found out about once he'd pieced together who he truly was, and instead resorted to getting an average job and becoming a John Doe in a country full of John Doe's. He passed on in early 2038, at 100 years old. Furthermore, his lineage didn't stop there, as he and his wife had six kids, who each in turn had children of their own, and then those children had children.
Raising his children, Humbert always tried to make sure they knew who they were. While he himself hadn't yet reached out to his family, nor did he plan to, he had a feeling sooner or later it'd all come to light, and the last thing he wanted or needed was his children being unable to cope with the news. And thank God he did it, really. His youngest, Gideon, was just six when news broke out. Nobody ever found out who the leak was, but even if they had, nothing could be done. The damage was there. Walt was long since dead and he had very little to worry about, but his family's reputation was on the line - until Humbert painted the situation off as the best one. I wouldn't have been able to handle it, he had said, My life wasn't meant to be lived on the spotlight.
His kids, though - his kids lived for the attention they were receiving. Gideon, his brothers, and his sisters drank it all up, posing and smiling for the cameras. Some were too young to fully comprehend why their father's story mattered so much, but as time progressed, it all clicked. Everything fell into place. Like their father, the kids all proved to be magic, and began to attend Ilvermorny by the age of 11. Except they didn't live out their lives as full members of wizarding society, because year by year, bit by bit, each one graduated and rejoined the no-maj world, integrating magic in their day to day lives. As members of the Disney family, they were able to find jobs in the company fairly quickly.
They all ended up in big positions. They were all relocated into different parks around the world as they opened - California in 1955, Orlando in 1971, Tokyo in 1983, Paris in 1992, Hong Kong in 2005, and Shanghai in 2009. They did their family name proud.
While Kenneth, one of Humbert's grandsons, was proud to work for the family business, he was even more proud to bring two healthy girls into the world with his wife Lorelei. First was Minerva, more commonly known as "Minnie," and seven years later came baby Ariana - "Ari" for short. Growing up in California, the girls had the pleasure of going to Disneyland. In fact, that's where Ari had her first magical experience at age seven. One of the mothers there had denied her son of popcorn. Crying as he was dragged away, Ariana knew she had to do something. In a matter of seconds, the popcorn machine burst with seemingly endless streams of the buttery treat. Kids all around the area rushed to catch the popcorn, laughing and having a blast. Ari, of course, joined them and had just as much fun as the rest of the children.
In 2038, Great Grandpa Humbert died of old age. It was a peaceful death, and he passed on surrounded by love from his family. But most importantly, it brought together his kids, who had becoming distant over time.
Wanting to honor their father, they came together and made a unanimous decision: make a new park solely for wizards and squibs. A park that embodied their culture and represented wizardkind. It was about time, wasn't it? And so the Huntsman's Carnival was brought into the world, moving the Disney's to England in the process.
