Herbert Arthur Disney was born on December 8, 1888 in Acron, Florida. (This town no longer exists but it is near Sorrento, Florida). His parents were Elias Charles Disney and Flora Call Disney.

His siblings were brothers Raymond Arnold Disney, Roy Oliver Disney, Walt Disney, (Walter Elias Disney), and one sister Ruth Flora Disney. Herbert was the oldest of the five children.

Herbert served in the U. S. Army during WWI.

Herbert was married to Louise R. Rast Disney and after Louise passed away, he married Margaret Chapman Disney. Herbert is interred next to his first wife Louise Disney in Valhalla Memorial Park at 10621 Victory Blvd. in North Hollywood, California.

Herbert and Louise had one daughter Dorothy Disney (Purder) who was born on July 1, 1915 in Kansas City, Missouri. Dorothy passed away on September 28, 2007 in Napa, California.

In the earlier years, Herbert and brother Raymond lived in Marceline, Missouri and both tired of farm life so they moved back to Chicago where the family lived before moving to Marceline. When their parents Elias and Flora moved from Marceline to Kansas City, Missouri, both of the brothers moved to Kansas City and resided with the family. It was during these later years that brother Walt started the Laugh-O-gram Studio and brothers Raymond and Roy were tellers at the First National Bank in downtown Kansas City.

In Kansas City Herbert met Louise R. Rast whom he married and they had one daughter Dorothy.

When Herbert's brothers Walt and Roy moved to California, Herbert and Louise and daughter Dorothy moved to Oregon. Later on, Herbert's mom and dad, (Elias Charles Disney and Flora Call Disney) moved to Oregon before finally settling in North Hollywood, California where Walt and Roy purchased them a new home close to the Disney Brothers' Studio. Herbert and his family also finally moved to California so the family was closer and finally together again.

Herbert was with the U. S. Postal Service for many years in Los Angeles, California.
