Join the Walt Disney Birthplace on a tour of Walt Disney’s Los Feliz, California!

kingswellhouseWhen Walt hopped on a train to California from Kansas City, it was his Uncle Robert’s house in Los Feliz that became his first home. That property is now under threat of demolition. The Walt Disney Birthplace and friends have stopped that process for now. We’d like to share this beautiful little corner of Walt’s story by showing you a cluster of quaint spots associated with the start of Walt’s career.

During this tour, you’ll see:

• Walt’s early homes and business addresses at the very start of his career

• The merry-go-round where Walt sat and thought up the idea for Disneyland

• Locations which further Walt’s story and his life with Lillian

• The Woking Way residence Walt moved to when he became successful

• Walt’s final resting place
