The Walt Disney Family Museum

A quick note from the road: the Walt Disney Family Museum in the Presidio in San Francisco is simply AMAZING! If you plan a trip, you will not be disappointed! I had the good fortune to attend one of the previews today, and I am still overloaded with new experiences, new things to see, new knowledge to gather. My favorite item? There are many, but one that stands out is a kind of "missing link," a message from Walt to Roy during the recording of the music for Steamboat Willie, describing the bouncing ball and "stick back-and-forth" system for synchronizing the music to the picture that I described earlier!

You MUST come and see all these fantastic artifacts; you will get a new understanding of Walt Disney, the man! The museums opens officially on October 1st.

Thanks, Hans. The museum is incredible. I was proud to be a member of Diane Disney Miller's amazing team. I would like to think Walt would be proud.
