Walt and his family put their feet up inside his Disneyland apartment above the Main Street, USA fire station in 1955. Note Lillian's Cinderella slippers. Ron Miller is pictured too.
Walt and Lillian Disney along with their grandchildren in his apartment above the Disneyland Fire Station. Imagineer John Hench once recalled another occasion at Walt’s apartment to author Bob Thomas. “When we were waiting to go to dinner at Disneyland one night, we went into his apartment above the fire station. He wasn’t there. He finally came in from the balcony and said, ‘You know, there are lots of happy people out there.’”
Art Linkletter recalled sitting with Walt and Lillian on the balcony watching the fireworks. When it was over, Art commented on what a great show it was and Walt answered "And we got everything we paid for-12 sky rockets, 8 flares...". Art said "We were watching them and he was counting them!".
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
