Every Disney fan knows about the lamp inside Walt's apartment on Main Street. After Walt's passing, the lamp in the window above the fire station remains on, symbolizing that his spirit continues to live at Disneyland.
In Hollywoodland at DCA, there's an art deco building representing the home of Walt Disney Studios.
The awnings are similar to those of the animation dept at the actual studios located in Burbank. Legend has it that Walt wanted everyone to have a window in their office in order to let natural light in.
At DCA, the corner office of the Walt Disney Studios building, which seems to represent Walt's 3rd floor corner office in Burbank, has a light that never goes out. Another way of paying homage to the artist Walt Disney at his studio office.
According to Biography, in 1966 Disney saw a doctor in the hopes of treating a long-standing neck injury from polo. When the x-rays came back they showed that Disney had a tumorous mass on his left lung.
Almost immediately he began to receive extensive care, and surgery to remove the lung. While the operation was successful, the extreme physical stress of the treatment left Disney incredibly weak, plus there was no guarantee that the cancer had not begun to spread elsewhere. In late November he needed to return to the hospital after briefly leaving to meet with relatives, and he remained there for the little time he had left.
Walt Disney died Dec 15, 1966 in Burbank at Saint Joseph Medical Center.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
