DISNEY ANIMATION HISTORY Part IX: BEHIND THE BLUE HAT

The Walt Disney Animation Studios in Burbank

Inside the main lobby.

Inside the blue hat.  See the light coming in the rear window?   Formerly Roy Disney's office, now a conference room.

The secret staircase

Corridors 1 and 2

 Disney animator’s desk

Just kidding, this is a real Disney 2D animator’s desk. 

And back outside the blue hat again.

WALT DISNEY STUDIOS

The entrance on Buena Vista Drive.

These traditional animation departments have moved across the street and only the signs are left for historical interest:


The commissary with outdoor patio, wisteria and pretty good food.

The beautiful old animation building now houses producers.


Dopey Drive (note the squirrel) and Eucalyptus Drive 
(the old animation building at right)

Management buildings made of the finest Italian marble.
