Every once in a while an event comes along which is both amazing and benefits a great cause. On Oct 22nd, the Walt Disney Birthplace will offer a tour of Walt Disney’s Los Feliz, CA to bring attention to the fragile history of Walt Disney which could soon be lost.  There are less than 15 spots left for this tour. Here’s the event information:

The tour begins at the Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round

Join the Walt Disney Birthplace on a tour of Walt Disney’s Los Feliz, California!

kingswellhouseWhen Walt hopped on a train to California from Kansas City, it was his Uncle Robert’s house in Los Feliz that became his first home. That property is now under threat of demolition. The Walt Disney Birthplace and friends have temporarily stopped that process. We’d like to share this beautiful little corner of Walt’s story by showing you a cluster of quaint spots associated with the start of Walt’s career.bobg

During this tour, you’ll see:

• Walt’s early homes and business addresses at the very start of his career

• The merry-go-round where Walt sat and thought up the idea for Disneyland

• Locationtamoshanters which further Walt’s story and his life with Lillian
