Showman of the World
By the late 1940s, Walt Disney's animated films had already made him a household name in animated entertainment. This would only be the beginning, as his studio moved into live action and nature films, while continuing to maintain a high level in its animated and mixed animation/live-action films. Disney would also enter early into the emerging medium of television, with popular favorites of the era including The Mickey Mouse Club, Zorro and Wonderful World of Color. By now, the studio had long outgrown its original Hyperion studio in Los Angeles' Silver Lake neighborhood, and was operating out of an expansive new Walt Disney Studios complex in Burbank.
You'll see a recreation of Walt's "formal" office in the Burbank studio, complete with original furnishings and many of his personal items. Revisit television favorites: original costumes from The Mickey Mouse Club, including Jimmie Dodd's mouse ears and Annette Funicello's Mouseketeer outfit. Just some of Walt's awards and accolades are presented, including Oscars® for Winnie the Pooh and Bear Country. And you won't want to miss the eleven-foot-long Nautilus special effects model from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
