An Insiders Look at Walt Disney’s Apartment in Disneyland

Here is a rare video from inside a place that very few people have seen; a place that cast members fondly call “Walt’s apartment.” It was built on Main Street, U.S.A., for Walt Disney and his family during construction of the Disneyland theme park.

One of the unique items showcased in the video is the Tom and Jerry drink set that Walt used to entertain guests during the holidays. In Walt’s apartment, in one of the drawers underneath the Tom and Jerry set where there is a recipe for the Tom and Jerry drink that is similar to the one that Walt served.  You can find this special recipe here for this drink!

Enjoy the recipe and the video:

    Walt’s apartment is a special place… I’m glad Disney makes it available via photos and videos, but glad they don’t open it up to more people. Making sure it’s ‘mostly’ “locked down” keeps it a special place.

    It really is a beautiful memorial to Walt. OTHER than Disneyland itself, there’s not much left that really has a connection to Walt Disney.
