Finding Snow White at Walt Disney's Barn

It took me a long time, but I finally made the trip to Griffith Park in Los Angeles, California to see Walt Disney's Barn.  I was surprised to find so many things inside the barn, there is a lot to look at, and even two Snow White trinkets in the barn itself, but I'm getting ahead of myself.
Here is a photo tour of my day at the barn:

Be on the lookout for the sign. They are open the third Sunday of the month.

No cost, but they encourage donations

The barn is located at the back of the Los Angeles Live Steamers area.  You'll see people riding around during your visit.

You cross the tracks a few times to get into the beautiful park-like area.

There is the barn and the combine that they are restoring.

Gift Shop

Flag pole honoring Michale and Sharon Broggie

Even the trash cans look like ones you would find in the theme parks.

They had lots of things lying around the barn to look at. LOTS of things.

That sink has seen lots of work!

If your in the Los Angeles area on the third Sunday of the month, stop and check out Walt's Barn.  It's an interesting afternoon and there are often Disney legends that stop by.  The gift shop sells quite a few autographed books too.
