    Trip report from last weekend. Photo heavy

    Hi Everyone,

    I will be posting a TR from this past weekend. I got a chance to take a tour of Disney Studios and Archives and of course hit up DLR. I will put all of the pictures from both here so if the mod wants to move them that's fine. i wasn't sure where to put it since it was a combo trip

    On Saturday We got to tour the Disney studios through a D23 ticketed event Below are a bunch of pictures from it. It was pretty sweet in my opinion seeing the older buildings that Walt once worked in. I was a bit shocked to find out his old office is in use and even leased out. I know Disney is all about money but really his office!!!!! The best part of the tour to me was the archives and seeing some really neat and obviously rare items. i will Caption some photos below the pictures and will post only some pictures tonight and finish it up tomorrow. We weren't allowed to take pictures inside at all which was a bummer until we got to the archives. I had both my Nikon d90 and my Canon point and shoot with me.Hope you enjoy!!!!



    From inside the car the picture of the entrance





    these line the fences around the corporate campus





    The water tower i have a lot of pictures of this lol
















    I thought this was pretty cool for what looked like was a trash compactor















    I took a bunch of photos of the flag below. apparently it's the company flag and it is only flown at the corp HQ








    the next couple ones are of Dopey/Mickey drive corner.























































    I will post the rest tomorrow of the tour and Disneyland!!!

    I've had the pleasure of visiting the Studio a number of times, for both the D23 tour and other things, but the one thing about the Studio is how much history is on that lot. Walking by these buildings and through the Animation building, you can feel the history and passion of Disney. It's really quite remarkable and I would suggest anyone, whether you're a die hard Disney fan or not, to try and get a tour of the Studio. It's extremely eye-opening and exciting.

    When I was last in LA, I remember standing at the front-gate wishing I could get in. Actually, I didn't know they offered tours. I'll need to look into that next time I'm in that area.

    I have a friend who works there. They told me next time I'm in California, they'd hook me up with a tour of the studios and the Archives.

    Ok Here is some more. We weren't allowed to take any pictures inside except for the archives. I took a lot of pictures of the dwarves statues and the partners statues. I only brought my telephoto lens so I was unable to get all of the Dwarfs in one shot. luckily my point and shoot took care of that for me








































    Lots of pitcures of those statues but they are so cool looking Below is some pictures I took from the courtyard.










    This is Roy watching his brother



    Mickey watching Roy put this moves on his woman






    These statues were pretty cool i didn't know they were there. i will post some more outside shots and what i got from inside the archives later.

    Ok here are some more random shots from around the lot and from inside the archives.



    Walt's office from the outside as i stated earlier currently there is someone who is working in there, and i believe they are leasing it.


























    the Julie Andrews soundstage

































    Now into the archives. We didn't have much time in there so I didn't take too many pictures since I wanted to take it all in.













    ^^This was my favorite piece it's the script for Steamboat Willie. Dave Smith talked to us for a bit he was the one who went into Walt's office to photograph the way everything was set up. When he came on to be the archivist or whatever you call them he pulled out this script from Walt's desk to preserve it.




    I forget which movie this was for but we got to hold the oscar later







    From EPCOT groundbreaking















    ^^My second favorite piece Disneyland ticket number one purchased by Roy Disney








    ^^ I LOVE Pete's Dragon so this was sweet to see.















    From the lion the Witch and the Wardrobe





    me holding the 8 pound oscar lol



















    That's all I have from the Studios and Archive tour hope you all enjoyed. i will post some Disneyland shots tonight or tomorrow.

    Ok here is the rest. I didn't take many pictures from the parks on Sunday as it was raining so I put the camera away and went on as many attractions as i could This included the Matterhorn for 3 times in a row among a lot of others. The crowds were nice and low all day in both parks. On Monday we hit the park for just a couple of hours and to our surprise the tree had been put up over night!!!! Hope you all enjoy!!!









































































































    The End!

    I was wondering the same thing. it does look like they don't used white gloves when they handle the corporate flag.
