On Saturday, Oct. 22nd, 2016, The Walt Disney Birthplace hosted a delightful tour through “Walt Disney’s Los Feliz!” The excursion included stops at 4406 Kingswell Ave., his first home in Los Angeles AND the birthplace of The Walt Disney Studios; The Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round, where he first began dreaming up Disneyland; his remarkable home at Woking Way; and more!

Mindy Johnson, the award-winning Disney author, historian and educator, was a fantastic and highly knowledgable guide. And she was joined by very special guest and Disney Legend Bob Gurr. Stephen Russo took some wonderful photos from the tour; please enjoy!
