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.

Reviews for Thank You Walt Disney Inc
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.
