Disney’s Forgotten Treasure: Walt’s First Studio

Located super close to my house in Garden Grove, CA is the Stanley Ranch Museum. The museum is home to several of the original buildings and homes built in Garden Grove, the oldest dating back to the mid-1860s. Garden Grove is next-door to Anaheim, the home of Disneyland.


The “studio” is actually a garage that had been owned by Walt’s uncle, Robert Disney. His uncle allowed Walt to use the garage when he came to North Hollywood in 1923.

The museum acquired the tiny studio in 1984 after The Friends of Walt Disney group saved it from demolition.

The Stanley Ranch Museum offers tours the first and third Sunday of every month at 1:30pm.

Jessica frequents Disneyland and California Adventure, and has even been to Club 33 inside Disneyland park. She also frequents other Southern California theme parks such as Knott's Berry Farm and Universal Studios Hollywood. She'll never forget what it was like to step into Walt's private apartment on Main Street, U.S.A., in Disneyland. She loves to snack on Disney treats while in the parks and you can often find her sipping on an "adult beverage" in California Adventure. You can follow her antics on Twitter @ocswaynee.
