Did you know that San Francisco has the Walt Disney Family Museum? I had no idea! It is an amazing collection of Disney history that will have Disney fans squealing. The Walt Disney Family Museum has galleries filled with the history of Walt Disney along with walls full of awards and a diorama of Disneyland.
One story from the museum stuck with me. Walt Disney talked about building a new amusement park and said “When I started on Disneyland, my wife used to say, ‘But why do you want to build an amusement park? They’re so dirty.’ I told her that was just the point; mine wouldn’t be.” Walt Disney focused on keeping his parks clean and rising above the typical amusements parks. Disney World and Disneyland are some of the cleanest places you will ever find, and somehow it seems like it is done without the maintenance being seen. It is an impressive feat that I think people don’t notice, but I do and appreciate the perfection and cleanliness of it all. This is just one of million nuggets of information that you can gather from coming to the Walt Disney Family Museum.
Why Disney Fans Need to Visit San Francisco
From now until October 9, the Walt Disney Family Museum has a special exhibit called Deja View: The Art of Andreas Deja Exhibit Features Art From The Lion King.
Andreas Deja worked on The Lion King and animated one of the best villains in Disney history – Scar. My husband and I were talking about Villains and Heros the other day after watching Marvel’s The Defenders (also a Disney property). Heroic stories are only as good as the Villains they face. Scar makes the story of The Lion King that much stronger! The exhibit shows drawings from Andreas Deja of Scar while he was working on The Lion King. Lucky us, The Lion King is now available on digital, and Disney Movies Anywhere and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on August 29!
You can learn more about the history behind the Disney magic we all love by checking the Deja View exhibit before it is gone! The Walt Disney Family Museum is why Disney fans need to visit San Francisco ASAP!
