I’m a #McFarlandUSAEvent Blogger. My trip is courtesy of Disney, however, all opinions are my own.
Based on a design by Kem Weber, the Walt Disney Animation Studios is considered the gem of the original studio buildings. It was completed in 1940. The project was personally supervised by Walt Disney.
The architecture features a “Double H” design, so that as many rooms as possible have windows, allowing natural light into the building for the animators working.
It’s a building rich in animation history with features including Cinderella, Peter Pan, Dumbo and Lady and the Tramp created and brought to life here.
Walt Disney had two offices within the building, known as his “formal” and “working offices”. Walt’s rooms continued to be used after his death in 1966, and personal items were archived in 1970, as it is believed that Walt would have wanted his offices to be reused.
This building as been home to not only Walt Disney but legendary animators and artists like Floyd Norman, Eyvind Earle, Mary Blair, Andreas Deja, Glen Keane, John Lasseter, Ron Clements and John Musker.
