Disney Fact #105

When Disneyland was under construction, Walt Disney had a private apartment installed over the historic fire station on Main Street, U.S.A. so he could watch over the progress of his park. When the park was completed, he and his family used the apartment frequently. Everyone knew when Disney was in his apartment because he left a light burning in the window.

Since Disney’s death in 1966, the light has been left on to honor his memory and to show that his spirit will always be a part of Disneyland. It’s a bittersweet tribute that continues to this day.
