Time and history have been forever preserved at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank. In honor of the 75th anniversary of the studio lot, Walt Disney’s office suite in the original Animation Building was restored.
On Monday, the lot held a ribbon cutting ceremony in honor of the newly reconstructed office. The office included “Walt’s formal and working offices, along with original furnishings, some items from his collection of miniatures, awards, and his piano.” In addition, Walt’s grandchildren Joanna Miller, Jennifer Goff, and Michelle Lund as well as Disney legends Richard Sherman, Kathryn Beaumont and Marty Sklar were in attendance.
Disney CEO Bob Iger said, “We put this permanent exhibit together to serve as a source of inspiration…a reminder to have great ambition, to take bold creative risks, to constantly innovate and push the limits of possibility, to relentlessly pursue perfection, and to tell fantastic stories that touch peoples’ hearts. That was Walt Disney.”
Since the passing of Walt, his items are being carefully looked after by the Walt Disney Archives team. Even more so, some of his items are placed on exhibits in Disney theme parks and various museums. Now with the office officially open to Disney employees, cast members and studio visitors, D23: The Official Disney Fan Club notes that Walt’s office will be added to tours in 2016.
