The Disney brothers put a $400 deposit down on this formerly empty lot on July 6, 1925. A single story building was erected with additions built through the '20s and '30s. Shortly after moving in, Walt changed the name from Disney Bros. to Walt Disney Studio. Cartoons animated here include Oswald the Rabbit, Steamboat Willie, Ferdinand the Bull, and Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.

Construction on the new Burbank studio began in 1938 and moving was completed in 1940. Although most of the former Hyperion studio buildings were demolished, a few were moved to Burbank. The lot now houses a Gelson's Market.

    The pronunciation is either Los "FEE-liss" or "FEE-liz"-- because the emphasis is generally on the first syllable, it is NOT the correct Spanish pronunciation of the word

    No, it's a correct tag. It's still used as a parking structure, with a couple businesses located on the lower level, with garage entrance in the center along Hill st and another entrance in the center on 9th st. One business is a middle eastern restaurant.

    This is where the Stooges were Ice Delivery men and by the time Curly would reach the top of the stairs the ice had melted! Classic stooges!

    Also the site of Rodger Young Village, public housing built in 1946 to provide homes for veterans at the height of the postwar housing crunch. It was leveled in the mid-1950s as the home supply caught up to demand and now no traces remain of it ever sitting at this bend in the LA River.

    Interesting house history. Been there during the day and dusk. Definitely high on the creepy factor.

    Shuttle??? Never taken one up or seen one and I've visited numerous times. Parking is a hassle but tolerable. Breathtaking views once you walk around to the back of the building. A must if you're visiting LA. Much better than overhyped Venice Beach.
