The Walt Disney Family Museum
Scott and I originally had plans to stay in Santa Barbara for Sufjan Stevens last weekend but we had a sudden death in the family and plans quickly changed. We sold our concert tickets, gave up our hotel but our sudden sad trip ended on a positive note. We stopped in San Francisco on the way back home and spent our day with Maryam and Margeaux at the Walt Disney Museum in The Presidio neighborhood.
The Disney family lives in the area and they wanted the museum close to home and while it's all things Walt and how he got started, it surprisingly rarely mentions much of Disneyland. If you're a Disney nerd like me, it's worth the trip. I learned how he grew up, his time in the army, and was blown away by the animation techniques used back then. Everything is digitalized/CGI'd these days and it's amazing to see what paints they used to animate.
The Walt Disney Family Museum is located 104 Montgomery St, San Francisco, CA 94129
