All of the inscriptions are to Jodie [Ferguson] Brudge, who was a secretary at Disney Studios, and upon her leaving (to get married, raise family, etc.) she asked those that she worked with to inscribe her copy of Fantasia, and several did, and included some really lovely illustrations and many include warm and heartfelt inscriptions.This work contains the following inscriptions and illustrations: Inscribed by Walt Disney on the title page: "To Jodie Best Wishes Walt Disney".
