22 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Walt Disney

Walt Disney had a secret apartment at Disneyland.

Located on the 2nd floor of Disneyland’s Main Street firehouse is a secret apartment from which Walt Disney used to watch the happenings below. It was from this apartment that Disney watched the crowds flow into the park on opening day, July 17th, 1955.

The 500 sq. ft. apartment contains a small kitchen, bathroom, and work space, all in a firehouse theme. (At one time there was even a fireman’s pole.) The apartment still exists today and Disneyland visitors can visit it on a guided tour.
