    Re: Walt's stinky apartment

    Thanks, especially to Opus and Circ. I couldn't remember if there were always bathrooms there or not. I tended to not think so, because of poor Walt up above them. But I guess he was a very brave individual after all!

    OK I'll bite. Anybody have pictures of the horses being boarded in the firehouse?

    Typically, the restrooms at Disneyland are fairly clean... at least thats been my experience... smells usually fade after a few minutes unless the bathroom is nasty.

    This is the first 30"x45" Disneyland map that was produced in 1958.(Note that this map is pre-Matterhorn, pre-Subs, pre-Monorail and features the Viewliner train)


    Here is some detail of Town Square. Note the Yellow circle at the fire station.


    Here is the legend from the map showing that the yellow symbol represents a restroom.

I was thinking this because I am sure on many days, especially hot summer days and the traffic that these bathrooms have, things could have gotten rather stinky for poor old Walt up in his apartment.

    Were the bathrooms always there, or were they added after Walt's passing? Just curious...
    I have a friend, call him Creed. He slept in a bathroom for many years when he was homeless, and he has informed me that you get used to the smell after a while. My guess is, Walt was a lot like Creed.

    Re: Walt's stinky apartment

    Y'know, people have always lived right over other peoples' bathrooms. They call those kinds of buildings, apartments.

    Having said that, the fireman on that map does look like he's in an awful rush to get out of there, even though there's no fire on Main Street anywhere.

    I know that the vehicles office is actually right below Walt's apartment... and the plumbing is on the wall so you would hear the water run when Walt had his own stinky!

    You kill me! Good point, however!

    Reminded me of Pleasantville. She goes to the bathroom, opens the stall and there's no toilet. (Movie takes place in the 1950s for most of it...)

    And yeah, I'm sure Walt either got used to it, didn't smell it, or didn't mind it. He was living in his theme park, you know. I don't think I'd mind too much... if my dream was coming true.

    Then again, he was getting a new apartment.

    He's been dead for 41 years....who knows what was underneath his apartment at that time!!! Like other said, his smoking would have drown out most other smells anyway!
