Walk in the footsteps of Walt Disney, the godfather of American animation and theme parks.
In 1923, after folding his Laugh-O-Gram animation company in Kansas City, Walt Disney relocated to Los Angeles with dreams of becoming a director for one of the major movie studios. At the age of 22 he moved in with his uncle, Robert Disney in Los Feliz. For the next four decades, he would live and work in and around this neighborhood. Starting in his uncle’s garage, Disney built in a series of animation studios and created the legendary Walt Disney Company we know today.
During this walking tour we’ll explore the locations of Disney’s early residences and studios (note: we will not go inside any of these buildings). We’ll also view other local landmarks such as Prospect Studios, the Shakespeare Bridge, and John Marshall High School.
