The Disney Gallery installation has a lot for fans to see. There’s a lot of concept art, some fans will likely have seen before, but a lot more that they have not. It’s worth stopping by just to walk through and see what there is to see.
The hag that used to live on Main Street, is from Snow White, she used to live on Main Street in the jewelry shop in the ‘60s and ‘70s. She was moved in the ‘80s to Fantasyland, and in the late ‘80s, she was lost.
At some point, it seems the hag was put in a box and sent to a warehouse and then everybody just lost track of it. It took two people, and a little luck more than likely, to actually find the hag in whatever Imagineering warehouse corner she’d been stuck into. Even just a couple of months ago this particular item wasn't planned to be on display because it hadn't been found yet. -cinemablend yahoo
Mickey Mouse at Laugh O' Gram Studios
Shortly after founding Laugh-O-gram Films, Walt decided he could no longer afford the expense of keeping his apartment. He moved into the Laugh-O-gram building and it became both his home and his place of employment.
As he slept there at night, he heard mice come out looking for the crumbs from his employees’ lunches which were tossed into a wire wastebasket. He began to put out food for these mice, luring them closer to him each night.
He said that one muse was braver than the others and eventually that mouse became tame and played on Walt’s drawing board while he worked. The mouse stayed in a drawer of his desk and in a small cage Walt bought for him.

Inside Mickey Mouse One : Walt's Plane
Palm Springs is home to Smoke Tree Ranch, Walt’s personal family getaway. Walt took his final flight on the Gulfstream from Palm Springs to Burbank following the Thanksgiving 1966 holiday.
This poster features an interpretation of Walt Disney’s Palm Springs home backyard where he is reviewing scripts under the umbrella while his grandkids lounge and play in the pool. Notice the Smoke Tree Ranch brand/logo in the lower left.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
