About the Walt Disney tour in Southern California

Southern California was home to Walter Elias Disney for over 40 years. From Los Feliz to Griffith Park, and from Burbank to his final resting spot in Glendale, The Walt Tour takes you and a small number of guests (up to seven) to the places he worked, lived, and enjoyed with his family, friends, and co-workers.

From his homes to his first studio in his Uncle Robert’s barn to his first storefront (Disney Brothers Studio), this Disney tour is the complete experience that covers Walt’s places around Southern California. Included is lunch at his favorite restaurant, the Tam O’Shanter where there is still a table, honored with a plaque, where he at lunch almost every day. Learn more about our Disney tour stops below.

Please note that tourists must be 12 years or older to participate in the Walt Tour.

  • Chevron down Disney Family Memorial
  • A very special opportunity to pay our respects to Walt and his family, who gave so much to mankind (when we wrote that sentence – it really hit us… he wasn’t just a man who gave to his city or state or even country – Mr. Disney is truly a citizen of the entire world who impacted and continues to impact lives). It’s an amazing opportunity to have a few quiet moments in a truly beautiful Memorial Park.

  • Chevron down Walt Disney Concert Hall
  • We know Walt never saw this building in person and may never have dreamed that such a grand building would bare his name but, it truly is a grand edifice and we’d like you to have the chance for a photo so, we make a quick stop here!

  • An amazing hotel that still stands and celebrates the history of Hollywood!
