The First Walt Disney Studio

When Walt Disney arrived in California to follow his dreams, he had only $40 and his worldly possessions which fit into a cardboard suitcase. Armed with just a suitcase and a dream, Walt needed a little help, so he moved in with his uncle Robert, who let him setup shop in a rickety garage at 4406 Kingswell Avenue in Los Angeles. From this simple garage, Walt Disney started a business that would grow into a multi-billion dollar empire. Want to see this garage today? It still exists. In 1984 it was moved to the Garden Grove Historical Park, where it remains to this day- a mere 15 minute drive from Walt's greatest dream come true- DISNEYLAND Park.
