    I never said "blame" - insinuations of negative connotations aside, you're right - it was Emile Kuri. My mistake; I was posting half-awake last night.

    And yes, - it does succeed remarkably for the Victorian style and time period; I can clearly see that and respect it. I didn't say that it wasn't carried out well - it's just that I personally find that style (in decor, not architecture) to be a bit garish and, like I said, "not my cup of tea." It was merely a personal opinion.

    I can recognize a job well done, even if I don't particularly care for it.

    My son and I completely loved looking at this. I still like to think that Walt is up there overlooking his park and all of us quests.

    Re: Walt's Apartment

    I saw this when it was posted on here maybe a year ago, a great treat!
    As far as decor goes, I love Victorian and turn-of-the-century/Edwardian style, but the colors in Walt's apartment I am not too fond of.

    When i was up there, it was a emotional experience. I felt that happy/wanting to cry feeling that parents get at their childrens wedding.

    Re: Walt's Apartment

    How did all you people get in there?! I'm so jealous!
    Thanks for the pics!
    It was actually learning about Walt's apartment that started my fascination with Disneyland. I was about 8 and have always loved Disneyland. We've been going to Disneyland every year since I was an infant! When I learned about Walt's apartment I realized that there is much more to Disneyland than what you just see and evuntually I started researching secrets behind Disneyland and all that. I'll always remember being 8 and telling my parents about Walt's apartment. They didn't believe me at first and I had to show them in a book that it existed! lol! And then I showed them the everlasting light in his apartment and we learned all about it when we went on the tour about Walt Disney. Awesome stuff
    ...After a YEAR I finally was able to figure out my password again! I'm baaack! Woohoo!(:
    Disney is my life <3
    Thank Walt for all he did! <3

    Re: Walt's Apartment

    That's a nice little tour.

    That's the first time I got to see the new carpet that was installed. The new carpet appears different to me. From what I remember, the original carpet was completely red. Can anyone confirm this from old pics?

    Also, I heard that the apartment no longer has that "old home" smell after the original carpet was removed.
