Walt Disney’s Office Restored as Permanent Exhibit Space on the Walt Disney Studios’ Lot

walt's deskWalt Disney’s office suite at the Walt Disney Studios lot in Burbank has been restored as a permanent exhibit space.

The restoration recreates Walt’s formal and working offices and includes original furniture, collections of his miniatures, awards, and even his piano. The office – 3H – was restored by the Walt Disney Archives staff and will be used as an “immersive exhibit experience” for employees and studio guests.

Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger said the restored office is meant to “serve as a source of inspiration” and “a reminder to have great ambition, to take bold creative risks…and to tell fantastic stories to touch peoples’ hearts.”

Walt first moved into the office in January 1940 and it was in this office where he came up with the concept of Disneyland and worked with artists including the Sherman brothers.

The dedication of the office was attended by Iger, members of the Disney family, Disney Legends, and others.

The permanent exhibit will also feature rotating exhibits on other Disney subjects to celebrate anniversaries, events, and more from the company’s history from 1923 to present day. The office will be open to Disney employees, cast members, and studio visitors, and it will be added to the tours of the Studios and archives sponsored by D23.
