Disney provided hotel and transportation so I could attend a press Day on the Disney lot for Peter Pan. During the Peter Pan press day we took a tour of Walt Disney’s office. Walt Disney’s office has been recreated down to the last detail. As much as possible the furniture and items you will see pictured below are original items. So take a walk with me through Walt Disney’s office.
Walt Disney had such a creative and innovative mind. Such a person like Walt Disney needed his own space and he had it. He had a reception area, his office and then an entertaining office that had a kitchen where Walt Disney’s Chili was served. We had the opportunity to check out what his space looked like years ago when he was alive and making movies.
It looks a little like I remember from ABC’s “A Wonderful World of Disney” or “Walt Disney Presents”. I think both of those were shows I used to watch. Oh and a fun tidbit, his brother’s office was VERY far away from his. Sometimes, they needed some space. Other than that TV show, how do we know what his office looked like?
How Do We Know What Walt Disney’s Office Looked Like
Disney archives keeps a little bit of everything so that history is accurately remembered. This includes what Walt Disney’s office looked like. I had the opportunity to walk inside Walt Disney’s office on the Disney lot in Burbank California. You know, you can also see what his office looked like in the movie Saving Mr. Banks. I believe our tour guide said that it was even filmed there.
What Walt Disney’s Office looked like
He had an office where he would write, he had an office where he would formally meet with people, and then he also had an office where he would be creative.
Here is a walk through Walt Disney’s Office in photos…
I find Walt Disney to be a very inspiring man. I’ve been lucky enough to visit many of his personal locations. I’ve been to the house Walt Disney lived in for many years. I’ve also visited the Walt Disney Family Museum. Of course I’ve also been to Walt Disney world and to Disneyland on many occasions. His dreams never seem to have died.
The first four photos in this blog post are courtesy of Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment. The rest of the photos I took myself on my tour of Walt Disney’s Office. I’m going to let you know that I have now visited his office twice now and I’m going to share with you a few photos I took on my most recent visit. I even learned a little more about the office.
