mickeyWho knew that there is a Walt Disney Family Museum in the Presidio in San Francisco? Evidently our fun committee does.  An intrepid team of Wallace Groupies braved the traffic and rain to visit this wonderful place.  The museum opened in 2009 and documents Walt's  work in animated shorts to live-action features and everything in between.  There are many interactive exhibits that educate Disney fans on his team’s work in sound, color and storytelling – and of course, Disneyland!  A really cool exhibit is a miniature of Disneyland as it first opened.  We highly recommend visiting the museum!dwarves
