Thank you walt disney, inc. Is committed to being a leader in art animation study, while encouraging confidence and entrepreneurial individualism. The efforts to restore the laugh-o-gram studio in kansas city represent more than just a fascination with walt disney and his incredible life. They represent our opportunity to preserve a part of our history that would have otherwise disappeared, and will ultimately serve as a catalyst to link education and hope with our youth, enabling them to become true leaders in our community.


Thank you walt disney, inc. Has succeeded in saving the historic site of walt disney's first professional film studio in kansas city, missouri! The building which housed walt's laugh-o-gram studio at 31st and forrest streets was very near collapse and had been scheduled for demolition by the kansas city dangerous buildings office before tywd acquired it. Efforts continue to renovate the building in order bring to the community a restored historical structure that can promote art animation and community relations.

Reviews for Thank You Walt Disney Inc

Rating: 4 stars  

The Thank You Walt Disney, Inc. organization is preserving and restoring Walt Disney's original animation studio in the midtown area of Kansas City, Missouri. The studio building had been condemned by the city and the group has purchased the building, restored the exterior walls, second floor and added a roof. They are designing Walt's studio area on the second floor to mirror photos taken when Walt worked there. The plans are for a small theater, education center and working animation and voice studios. Once completed, it should be a unique destination and working educational center.
