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.
