Walt Disney’s Vacation Home Is For Sale

January 16, 2017 Walt Disney No Comments
Walt Disney built his Palm Springs vacation home a few years before he died in 1966

Walt Disney built his Palm Springs vacation home a few years before he died in 1966

When Roy and Walt Disney co-founded the Walt Disney Company in 1920, they had dreams of large success, but likely could not have fathomed becoming the world leader in fantasy, cartoon characters and family film. Neither would they have imagined continuing that leadership position in their artistic niche so long after their deaths. Although Roy was the silent, shy partner who addressed the financial end, Walt was the creative part of the duo and during his lifetime accrued 26 Academy Awards (still a record) for the company. Though Walt was the youngest brother, he died at the age of 65 in 1966. Roy was 73 at the time and postponed his retirement in order to open Disney World, which he later named Walt Disney World in honor of his brother. The new park transformed Orlando from a sleepy military and citrus town to America’s most popular family resort vacation destination with over 50 million visitors in 2016.

Only three years before his death, Walt Disney and his wife, Lillian, built a vacation home in Palm Springs as a getaway from Walt’s hectic work schedule and to enjoy their later years. The home stayed in the Disney family until 2015 and the new owners retained the charm and whimsy of the home created by this imaginative couple.

At 2,443 square feet, the four-bedroom, four-bath home has the clean lines of mid-century design, private in the front with cheerful red double entry doors and wide open to the outdoors in the back with views of the pool, raised spa, mountains and the Indian Canyons Golf Resort. As with most of the modernist homes of Palm Springs, the focus was on the enjoyment of outdoor living, relaxing and entertaining.

Furnished in period furnishings with an Art Deco flair, bold flushes of color against a neutral background is indicative of Walt’s colorful creations on film. Little surprises are found in various locations around the house and iconic Disney sayings are playfully written in the backs of closets challenging residents not to enjoy the unexpected chuckle. The listing agents are Klint Watkins and Ryan Cummings of HK Lane, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate. The home is priced at $899,000.

Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort Starts Sept. 9, as Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Begins its Final Check-out Celebration

Twilight Zone™ Tower of Terror Begins its Final Check-out Celebration

Twilight Zone™ Tower of Terror Begins its Final Check-out Celebration

 

Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort offers two new reasons for guests to visit this year­­––a special celebration at The Twilight Zone™ Tower of Terror with a chance to “drop in” like never before, and the debut of the “Frightfully Fun Parade” at Mickey’s Halloween Party, a separate-ticket event. The parade features some popular Disney villains and a procession of grim, grinning ghosts, while The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow appears for the first time at Mickey’s Halloween Party.

Those treats add to the family-friendly thrills, popular seasonal attractions and spooky decor that make Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort so magical. The season runs from Friday, Sept. 9, through Monday, Oct. 31, offering the popular Haunted Mansion Holiday and Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy attractions, themed foods and merchandise, plus spirited decor that features a giant Mickey Mouse jack-‘o-lantern on Main Street, U.S.A.

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Final Check-out Celebration at Disney California Adventure Park

The invitation to check into the Hollywood Tower Hotel is even more urgent now as The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror approaches its final check-out date, Jan. 2, 2017. A special tribute begins Sept. 9 to salute the haunted hotel’s eerie story and exciting adventure at Disney California Adventure Park. During the celebration, guests who arrive after twilight will enjoy “Late Check-Out”–-a chance to venture beyond the fifth dimension into complete darkness.  It’s something guests have never experienced before: free-falling in the attraction’s haunted elevator shaft with all the lights out.

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror celebration also includes special musical performances, commemorative merchandise and specialty food and beverage items. Performing at the Hollywood Tower Hotel are the Silver Lake Sisters, characters from the story of this famous hotel who once performed at its rooftop lounge. The sisters make their return to the Hollywood Hotel during Halloween season.

Spooky Halloween Traditions at Disneyland Park

Throughout the Halloween season, guests will find special treats and thrilling traditions.  Haunted Mansion Holiday returns to celebrate the collision between Halloween and Christmas, and a familiar guest moves into the Mansion: Jack Skellington from the Walt Disney Pictures classic “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.”

  • Jack Skellington brings a unique spark to the season and, for the first time, his friend Sally joins him in the Mansion graveyard.
  • The annual Haunted Mansion Holiday gingerbread house is back with a new theme. This year’s version appears to have been stitched together from pieces of other gingerbread houses and treats. In fact, the ghoulish architect has stitched himself inside the house, and one green arm still may be spotted, sewing the walls together around him.
  • Another Halloween favorite is Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy, a Halloween-themed reimagining of the popular thrill ride in Tomorrowland, at Disneyland. Guests on board the speeding Space Mountain vehicles are thrust into a ghostly galaxy where they are bombarded with eerie screams, sound effects and music. Spine-chilling spirits pop out of the darkness, appearing to reach out to menace the space travelers.
  • The traditional Mexican celebration, Dia de los Muertos,” is observed with a skeleton display in Frontierland, near Rancho del Zocalo restaurant.
  • As a special, after-dark treat during the Halloween season, guests visiting Disneyland on select nights will enjoy the “Fantasy in the Sky” fireworks spectacular.
  • During the day, the dynamic “Mickey’s Soundsational Parade” marches down Main Street, U.S.A., throughout Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort.

Mickey’s Halloween Party

New this year at Mickey’s Halloween Party is the premiere of the “Frightfully Fun Parade,” seen exclusively on the 17 nights of this separately ticketed event at Disneyland.

  • The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow (from the Disney animated classic “The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad”) brings a warning to guests, riding through the park on his ghostly black steed with a flickering jack-‘o-lantern.
  • Shortly afterward, the parade begins with greetings from Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”
  • Grim, grinning (and hitchhiking) ghosts follow along in the procession, joined by other spirits from the iconic Haunted Mansion attraction.
  • Inspired by Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog,” the creepy Dr. Facilier calls on mystical powers, summoning his Shadow Men from the bayou to loom large over his strange and twisted Voodoo parlor.
  • Mischievous Disney villains appear out of the darkness, ready to stir up some trouble, and their wicked gathering includes the Evil Queen, Jafar and Cruella.

Mickey’s Halloween Party guests are invited to visit in costume and trick-or-treat throughout Disneyland for candy and healthy snacks. An extra special treat is the Halloween Screams” fireworks spectacular, presented exclusively for guests of Mickey’s Halloween Party and hosted by “Master of Scare-omonies” Jack Skellington.

Tickets for Mickey’s Halloween Party* may be purchased online and on mobile devices at Disneyland.com/party, as well as at the Disneyland Resort main gate and by phone at 714-781-4400.

La Peri is an interactive Virtual Reality fantasy adventure and visual masterpiece inspired by Walt Disney’s Fantasia. Innerspace VR worked with a ballet dancer and state of the art motion capture facilities to create the guardian spirit – La Peri as well as the other magical creatures you encounter on the journey. The resulting effect is one of unparallelled life-like presence and emotion in a fully artificial environment.

When CCO and Co-founder Balthazar Auxietre and his team were working on the Firebird franchise they engaged John Rhys-Davies to voice FIREBIRD:La Peri. Rhys-Davies, whose credits include Spielberg’s Indiana Jones and Peter Jackson’s The Lord of The Rings, is one of the first Hollywood figures to become directly involved in Virtual Reality entertainment.

Balthazar Auxietre said in a statement, “it was an obvious choice for John to do the voice over. His legacy in gaming and entertainment is unparalleled.” Balthazar Auxietre is an award winning Virtual Reality director who has created 4 experiences which have received critical acclaim from Virtual Reality enthusiasts all over the world.

Silvergate Signs Three Year Global Master Toy Renewal Deal with Fisher-Price for Octonauts

Silvergate Signs Three Year Global Master Toy Renewal Deal with Fisher-Price for Octonauts

Silvergate Signs Three Year Global Master Toy Renewal Deal with Fisher-Price for Octonauts

Silvergate Media (“Silvergate”), the international TV production and licensing company focused on pre-school children’s entertainment based in New York and London, has signed a three year master toy renewal deal for Octonauts, its undersea preschool adventure property with Fisher-Price Inc., one of the world’s leading manufacturers of infant and preschool toys and a subsidiary of Mattel Inc.

Now in its fourth season Octonauts is aired in over 100 countries across the world, including on Disney Channel (USA), ABC (Australia), TF1 (France) and Super RTL (Germany). Octonauts is also broadcast on China Central TV (“CCTV”).

Fisher-Price have been Silvergate’s toy partner for Octonauts since 2011, with the brand established as a leading preschool toy property in the United States, UK, Europe, Australia, and Korea. A successful toy launch is underway in China, with Russia to follow this Fall.

Fisher-Price plans to launch over 20 new toys in 2016, based around a fantastic “Year of Slime” play pattern.

Waheed Alli, CEO, Silvergate said:

“We are thrilled to have renewed our partnership with Fisher-Price demonstrating our commitment to working with world-class partners to develop fantastic toys.

“Octonauts is now truly a global property, and continues to go from strength to strength as a unique and exciting pre-school brand.

“As the show gains popularity in new markets, we look forward to millions more children enjoying Octonauts toys at home.”

Susie Lecker, EVP Chief Brand Officer, Toybox Division, Mattel Inc. said:

“We’ve really enjoyed bringing the underwater world of Octonauts to life thanks to a globally relevant aquatic and rescue theme that’s so toyetic that the toys jump out of the show.

“Silvergate’s dedication to support Octonauts with continuous new content paired with an aggressive pursuit of content distribution makes them a terrific partner.”

Under the three year master toy license, Fisher-Price has global rights to develop pre-school playsets, vehicles, figures, plush, and electronic learning aids.
