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.
